There was a lot to like during the first quarter of the New England Patriots’ preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Led by Tom Brady, the offense looked solid while the team’s defense applied plenty of pressure on reigning Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles. However, there was one clear negative: first-round rookie Isaiah Wynn had to leave the contest after suffering an ankle injury.

Wynn rotated in and out of the lineup at right tackle and came up limping early during the Patriots’ second series. He exited the field and went straight to the medical tent on the sidelines before getting on a cart and being brought to the locker room. The team later announced that the Georgia product was “questionable” to return to the game with the aforementioned ankle injury.

With Wynn out, LaAdrian Waddle entered the field again as the Patriots’ right tackle. Considering that the starting option at the position – Marcus Cannon – is also dealing with an injury, Wynn’s injury is a situation worth monitoring moving forward. The rookie did look good during limited action.
