The New England Patriots will be without Isaiah Wynn in the game against the Buffalo Bills as they have ruled out the offensive tackle for the game. This is a big blow for the Patriots nation. Wynn has a key role with the team and playing without him will give Bill Belichick a big trouble.
The Patriots downgraded the starting left tackle to out right before the wild-card game against the Bills. The 26-year-old was listed as questionable in recent injury reports. Wynn is dealing with hip and ankle issues. He stayed on the sideline for several straight sessions. The talented player started the week as a limited participant.
Wynn left the first quarter of the game against the Miami Dolphins and the team ruled him out for the game. Justin Herron stepped in as a replacement for Wynn. Mike Onwenu is also here. However, veteran starter Trent Brown continued playing at right tackle.
The Patriots have to win the game while the offensive tackle is out
Wynn had 15 starts in the regular season and ranked fifth on the offense with 916 snaps on his list. The offensive tackle missed one game in October as he ended up on the COVID list.
Several other players were listed as questionable for the game. Running back Damien Harris, wide receiver Jakobi Meyers, and center David Andrews deal with issues. Belichick needs each and every player on his list. They have to win the game against the Bills.
New England lost one game to the Bills but they also won one. What does that mean? It will be a tight game for players on both teams. New England has enough players to beat the Bills. Buffalo players may be super confident about their performance, but Belichick is here to teach them a lesson. Of course, the weather won’t do them any favor. Will players be able to win the game in freezing temperatures? The Patriots are used to this weather. What about the Bills? New England made the playoffs and players better use every chance on their way.
