Patriots place Isaiah Wynn on IR with foot injury, will miss at least eight weeks

The New England Patriots offensive line has been hit hard by injuries just two weeks into the regular season.

The Patriots officially announced Tuesday that starting left tackle Isaiah Wynn has been placed on injured reserve. ESPN’s Mike Reiss provided further details:

Wynn suffered a turf toe injury in Sunday’s Week 2 win over the Miami Dolphins. He suffered the injury in the first half and was ruled out early in the third quarter.

The second-year left tackle missed his entire rookie season due to a torn A Achilles injury.

Wynn is not the only Patriots offensive lineman dealing with a health issue. 

Starting center David Andrews won’t play at all in 2019 after being hospitalized for blood clots in August. Starting right tackle Marcus Cannon didn’t play versus the Dolphins after suffering a shoulder injury in New England’s Week 1 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Cannon was a limited participant in practice all last week. 

The Patriots signed veteran offensive lineman Marshall Newhouse last week, and they added free agent offensive lineman Caleb Benenoch on Tuesday. 

The defending Super Bowl champs host the New York Jets at Gillette Stadium on Sunday in Week 3.

Report: Jaguars trade CB Jalen Ramsey to Rams

Report: Jaguars trade CB Jalen Ramsey to Rams

One month after requesting a trade from the Jacksonville Jaguars, Jalen Ramsey got his wish.

The star cornerback was traded to the Los Angeles Rams on Tuesday for two first-round draft picks in 2020 and 2021 and a fourth-rounder in 2021, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The news comes on the heels of the Rams trading veteran CB Marcus Peters to the Baltimore Ravens and placing Aqib Talib on injured reserve on Tuesday.

Ramsey's move to the NFC is great news for the Patriots, as New England won't have to worry about the two-time Pro Bowler helping out the Kansas City Chiefs' scuffling defense after they were rumored to be one of his suitors.
