Connolly (head) leaves game

NASHVILLE -- New England Patriots offensive lineman Dan Connolly left Sunday's game in Tennessee with a head injury, and will not return, the team announced.

Connolly's last offensive play came as a fullback on Stevan Ridley's 1-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter.

In 2010, Connolly missed two games after sustaining a concussion on a kick return vs. Green Bay.
