The New England Patriots are having a tough time against the Tennessee Titans and find themselves down 24 with under seven minutes left in the third quarter. To make matters worse, the Patriots lost three players to injuries over the course of the game: according to the team, wide receiver Julian Edelman, offensive tackle Trent Brown and tight end Dwayne Allen are all questionable to return to the game.
Brown, of course, missed the first two practices of this week because of an illness and only returned on Friday in limited fashion. The first-year Patriot, who is in the middle of an excellent season as Tom Brady’s blindside protector, started the game but left it again in the second quarter. He returned in the third period but hurt his back shortly afterwards, forcing him out of the game.
Allen and Edelman, meanwhile, also had to leave the game. Allen hurt his knee in the third quarter, while New England’s top wide receiver was injured on an unsuccessful fourth down attempt in the fourth period.
The bye week can’t come soon enough.
