Patriots Expect Derek Rivers To Miss Entire Season With Knee Injury

Patriots fear DE Derek Rivers lost for season with torn ACL, sprained LCL Report: Patriots' top draft pick diagnosed with torn ACL
Rita Gibson | 18 August, 2017, 21:14

Rivers was the first pick of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Patriots after they made trades out of rounds one and two. New England desperately needed to add a solid edge rusher this season and Rivers, who recorded 37.5 sacks in college, filled that need. He could be seen rushing from the outside, dropping into coverage on running backs, or standing over interior offensive linemen during recent practices.

The Patriots selected Rivers with the 83rd overall pick (their first in the 2017 draft), and he was expected to be part of their rotation at defensive end this season.

Rob Ninkovich announced his retirement early in training camp. Linebacker Shea McClellin, who has experience on the edge, has been absent from Patriots practices for nearly two weeks. Shea McClellin also saw some time on the edge when he was with the Bears prior to joining the Patriots last season. He, along with fellow linebacker Kyle Van Noy, have some versatility to play both off the ball and on the end of the line.

Will Trump Be Impeached Or Resign? Betting Odds Say Greatest Chance Yet
There were some rumblings today that top economic adviser Gary Cohn may even resign over the president's recent conduct. This was later borne out by reports that Trump doesn't read numerous important reports presented to him as president.

The Patriots could look to sign a veteran defensive end to bolster their lean depth chart. Undrafted rookie Harvey Langi comes to mind first, especially considering the Patriots have used him there a lot in the first few weeks of training camp and in last Thursday's preseason game.

The Patriots might need to start moving some players around on defense. "That's what I feel like I'm doing".
