The Patriots endured another physical game Sunday in San Diego, and they suffered a pair of injuries as a result. Here's the Monday health checkup.
Safety Patrick Chung went to the locker room in the second quarter with a knee injury, and the Patriots announced his return was questionable. However, Chung never returned. He entered the game as the team's second-leading tackler, and this would be a huge loss if it's anything serious. Chung, though, told the Boston Herald after the game he was "all right."
Wide receiver and special teamer Matthew Slater went to the locker room in the second quarter with an ankle injury, and the Patriots announced his return was questionable. However, Slater did not return.
Running back Fred Taylor did not play due to a toe injury he suffered in Week 3 against the Bills. He hasn’t practiced since then, either, and there has been no indication as to when Taylor will return.
Safety Jarrad Page did not play due to a left calf injury that he suffered last week against the Ravens. Page didn’t practice all week and was ruled out Friday. The Patriots also activated undrafted rookie safety Sergio Brown from the practice squad, which indicates Page might need a little more time to heal up.
