Report: Patriots LT Isaiah Wynn Placed on Injured Reserve With Foot Injury

The New England Patriots will have to think of an alternative for Isaiah Wynn. The protector of Tom Brady’s blind side was placed on injured reserve due to a foot injury. He will miss at least eight weeks, and doctors will reevaluate his condition before giving him a green light to play.

Head coach Bill Belichick talked about Wynn’s injury during the postgame press conference, but he wasn’t really convinced that the left tackle will miss that much time.

The situation is really challenging in that aspect. Wynn is gone now.

“Yeah, it’s a real challenge there. Marshall (Newhouse) and Korey (Cunningham) really stepped up and that’s what we have depth for,” head coach Belichick said. “We had to use it today. It was a tough day out there but they battled through it.”

According to the head coach, Wynn wasn’t supposed to miss a lot of games, but he was obviously wrong. Belichick was convinced that Wynn didn’t suffer a long-term injury.

Josh McDaniels was skeptic about the Patriots offense without Rob Gronkowski, but they are doing a really good job out there.

“Nobody’s going to replace Rob. So it doesn’t matter what we’re doing, or who we bring in, that person is not just going to drop into the offense and say, ‘OK, I’ve got his role covered.’ That’s not going to happen,” he said in Mat. “I think what you do is take the best group you can put together, figure out what their strengths are, and try to play to them.

“So at this point, I don’t really know. It would be unfair for me to say that, because I haven’t really seen many of them out there in our scheme, against a defense, obviously nothing in pads. So I think OTAs and training camp will be big for us this year in terms of evaluating what we have and how we should play. In May, it’s tough to say. It’s tough to project that.”

The Patriots still have a lot of room for improvement, and coach Belichick is here to adjust the winning formula for his team.
