Wynn hobbled off the field towards the end of the first quarter of the second preseason game between the New England Patriots and the Eagles. Wynn couldn’t even get to the sideline on his own, and used the help of trainers.
Doctors checked Wynn in the blue medical tent, and was then sent straight to the locker room.
The team confirmed that Wynn had an ankle injury, and the player didn’t return to the field. Yes, his condition was that serious.
The Patriots drafted Wynn as the No.23 overall pick in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He was supposed to have a pivotal role at the offensive line. But, the game is over now.
The first team All-SEC pick is now the second top of the Pats in as many years to suffer the season-ending injury in the preseason. The same thing happened to Derek Rivers and he tore his ACL last year.
Well, playing football means that you have greater chances of getting hurt. It’s a tough game, and unfortunately, some players stop playing before they even show their skills to the world.
Now the Patriots have depth along the o-line with Trent Brown confirmed as the starting left tackle. Marcus Cannon is starting on the right side. LaAdrian Waddle, Matt Tobin and Cole Croston will make up the rest of the tackles on the roster.
