FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- An emotional Kevin Faulk confirmed Wednesday he was out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, saying he "cried a whole lot" after it happened but has since accepted his fate.
"Hey, it's life. You have to deal with it," Faulk said. "You get knocked off the road sometimes. [It's about] how you get back on and who you are as a person."
The 34-year-old New England Patriots running back said he would have surgery in about a month, after the swelling subsided, and that he plans to "work my butt off" to rehab from the injury before deciding if he will try to return for a 13th NFL season.
