New England Patriots place left tackle Isaiah Wynn on injured reserveHoney
The New England Patriots have placed tackle Isaiah Wynn on injured reserve, marking the most recent blow to an already injury-riddled offensive line.
Wynn suffered a foot injury in the first quarter of New England’s 43-0 win at Miami on Sunday and didn’t return to the match.
By signing veteran lineman Caleb Benenoch, who’s played 35 games with 22 starts for Tampa Bay over the previous four 33, Wynn’s roster spot on Tuesday filled.
This is the second straight season that Wynn has gone IR. A pre-season Achilles tendon injury caused him to miss his rookie season.
The transfer means Wynn cannot return to practice for six weeks. So would be qualified to suit up against the Philadelphia Eagles on November 17 at the 29, prior to returning to game action, he must finish two months of practice.
It’s a component of a series of injuries to hit the Patriots’ starting offensive line this season. Following blood clots were found in his lungs, center David Andrews started the season.
Moreover, beginning right tackle Marcus Cannon did not play against the Dolphins because he continues to recuperate from the shoulder injury he sustained through the Patriots’ season opener.
Marshall Newhouse, that was signed last week, started against Miami in the place of Cannon.
Coach Bill Belichick said that they are currently dealing with the shuffling up this season.
“I think they’re attempting to get the very best they can,” he explained. “A number of them anticipated or had an opportunity to plan for, a few happened rather quickly and you have to respond to people.
“But yeah, this group is now still really a hardworking group. Overall we’ve just tried to take it day by day and do the things which we are able to do.”
