RG Waters shaken up

DENVER -- Patriots right guard Brian Waters appeared to sustain a lower left leg in the second quarter of Sunday's game.

Waters was slow to get up after blocking on a goal line run. He was attended to by trainers before hobbling off the field. On the sideline, trainers appeared to be re-taping his left leg. He was replaced by Dan Connolly.

Waters spent time on the injury report this season with a knee injury after getting rolled up on during a Week 10 win over the Jets.
