Boston, MA (Sports Network) - New England Patriots defensive tackle Vince
Wilfork reportedly suffered a torn right Achilles' tendon during Sunday
night's game against Atlanta.
Wilfork limped off the field in the first quarter of New England's 30-23
victory and was later seen with his foot in a walking boot.
The Boston Globe, citing a league source, reported the severity of the injury
Monday morning and said Wilfork would likely miss the remainder of the season.
Wilfork has spent his entire 10-year career with the Patriots, who selected
the Miami-Florida product in the first round of the 2004 draft. He has nine
tackles in four games this season.
