There is a report out that one Patriots defensive lineman has suffered a season ending injury. The Patriots are once again coming off a loss. They failed to win against the Tom Brady led Tampa Bay Buccaneers in week 4 of the NFL season. The Patriots are now 1-3. But now there is even more bad news for the Patriots as a defensive lineman has suffered a season ending injury.
DE Henry Anderson has a torn pec. If this is confirmed with an MRI, he will be out for the rest of the season.
The Patriots picked up Anderson and signed him to a two-year, $7 million contract. He has not played much so far this season. Against the Buccaneers, he only played 3 snaps. It will still be a hit to the team.

Bill Belichick was asked about his team after the game as well. He was asked about several different topics including touchdowns, penalties and the offense in general. It is interesting to see his thoughts.
“Well, again, we got production really out of everybody in the passing game. Tight ends, receivers, backs. Mac [Jones] spread the ball around, and we had good production from a lot of different people, but we still need to continue to work on, as I said, our timing, our execution, pass protection, blitz pick-up, you know, situational football, red area, third down. Like all those things are always important, and that’s the key to the passing game is throwing the ball in those situations. We’ll continue to work hard on those areas and try to improve.”
“Well, there’s a lot of areas that we can improve, and we can improve everywhere, and so we’ll keep working on all of them. Fundamentals, execution, timing, physicality, coaching. We need to do a better job in a lot areas in all three phases of the game.”
“I think it’d be better if the officials give their explanation on it. They’re the ones who called it, and based on what they called, I thought it was handled correctly based on the way the play was called.”
