FOXBORO, Mass. — The first injury of New England Patriots training camp might wind up being a severe one.
Orton likely would be placed on injured reserve, ending his season, if he did tear his Achilles. The wide receiver was re-signed by the Patriots on Wednesday after being released May 22.
The Patriots already have an open spot on their 90-man roster after releasing tight end Nate Byham on Friday.
