Wilfork has torn Achilles' tendon

A league source tells the Boston Globe's Shalise Manza Young that Patriots NT Vince Wilfork has been diagnosed with a torn Achilles' tendon.
If true, it means Wilfork's season is over, and that the Patriots have a gaping hole on the front line of their defense. Wilfork went down in the first quarter of Sunday night's win, and did not return. Wilfork has missed just six games in 10 NFL seasons, and zero since 2009. Joe Vellano and Chris Jones are next up on the depth chart, but as NESN's Doug Kyed points out, the Pats will likely be in the market for help.

Worst injury that could have happened outside of Tom Brady for the Pats.

Not sure it will ruin their season since they are already 4-0 but I have to think it puts a major ding in their pass rushing ability. He created so many opportunities for others to make big plays.

Of course New England goes into Atlanta and pretty much dominated most of that game.

Losing Wilfork will hurt the Patriots, but they won't go away and still the team to beat in the East.

I noticed Atlanta's YPC went up but not by much. NE's pass rush was noticably improved without Wilfork.

Atlanta has sucked at making adjustments as games go on. I think moving forward it will be a huge loss.

Considering he'll be 32, plays an extremely demanding position, and weighs as much as he does....this has to be career threatening.

Not disappointed obviously, but it's a shame to hear about any premier player in the league.

I agree. Vince is such a big man and at this point in his career, it will be interesting to see how his recovery comes along.

Personally, I think they will miss him more in the run game, and he is almost impossible to move.

This is a huge blow to their run defense. He is the type of player that would require double teams. The stars continue to line up for the Dolphins run at the playoffs this year.

The Patriots losing Wilfork is a big blow, but a Belicheck coached team will stay dangerous and the road to winning the AFC East is still through the Patriots.

That is true Finhead. But that road got a little easier to travel and can go right between the center and guards now. :grin:

7.8 YPA isn't bad.

It would have been 5th in the league last season.
