New England Patriots running back Kevin Faulk has a torn ACL in his right knee, an NFL source told the Boston Globe. It is an injury that usually means the end to a player’s season, though the Patriots have not yet placed Faulk on injured reserve.
"They're still working on it. I think part of it is how things come around in the next day or so," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said on a conference call with reporters earlier Tuesday. "We'll see how things go in the next day or so and based on how that is, then make a decision at that point."
Earlier today, Mike Reiss blogged about what a significant Faulk injury would mean for the recently acquired Danny Woodhead.
