FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The Patriots are watching players go down at an alarming rate in the second half. Fortunately, the most recent injuries don't appear serious.
Both defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth and safety James Ihedigbo needed to be attended to by the training staff late in the third quarter. Both returned to the field a few snaps later.
Earlier in the game, the Patriots watched rookie cornerback Ras-I Dowling (right thigh), punter Zoltan Mesko (left leg), and safety Patrick Chung (hand) depart due to injury.
