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.

Say it ain't so: Rob Gronkowski, in Lakers gear, dances in halftime show in L.A.

Say it ain't so: Rob Gronkowski, in Lakers gear, dances in halftime show in L.A.

Could Rob Gronkowski rub it in a little more?

In the morning, Gronk's "big announcement" was that he'll be going to the Super Bowl - not with the Patriots, but as the host of "Gronk Beach" in Miami, the site of SB54. Thus ends the comeback, at least for this season.

He later joked that Pats were just "missing some 6-6, 260 [pound] guy...They're missing that guy for sure."

To top it all off, at night, Gronk donned Lakers purple and gold and was part of a halftime dance show with the Laker Girls at the Staples Center in Los Angeles where New England's least favorite NBA team was taking on the Oklahoma City Thunder. 

Gronk showed off his moves with talk show host James Corden and tennis great Venus Williams.

Enjoy your retirement, big guy. Think he'll stick around and rock some Celtics green Wednesday night at Staples when the C's face the Clippers?

Should we read anything into Tom Brady 'liking' Antonio Brown's Instagram apology?

Should we read anything into Tom Brady 'liking' Antonio Brown's Instagram apology?

So, Tom Brady (and other Patriots) "liked" an apology post from former-teammate-for-11-days Antonio Brown on Instagram?

What's it mean?

That was the subject of a heated debate on Boston Sports Tonight among DJ Bean, Tom Curran, Michael Holley and Danielle Trotta.

It was Curran and Holley who were at odds over whether we should be reading anything into the social media vagaries on any athlete.

Holley: "For whatever reason, lots of players get into it. Lots of celebrities get into it...not because we [the media] are broken, but because that's how they communicate. And we would be reckless if we didn't follow it."

Curran: "It's reckless to vest any perception or presumption into it."
