Patriots running back Kevin Faulk is likely to miss the remainder of the season with a torn right ACL, according to a Globe report.
“They’re still working on it,” coach Bill Belichick said during a conference call yesterday.?“I?think part of it is kind of how things come around here in the next day or so.”
Faulk, who has played 154 games for New England since being drafted by the team in 1999, was hurt in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s defeat.
The loss could be a huge blow to the Pats’ passing attack. Faulk has caught at least 26 passes each year since 2000, and is the team’s go-to option out of the backfield on passing downs.
