The New England Patriots have plenty of concerns along the offensive line heading into the 2018 season, and they were dealt a major blow in Thursday night's preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Wynn's injury comes on the heels of Redskins rookie second-rounder Derrius Guice tearing his ACL during a preseason game last week.

Isaiah Wynn's first season in the National Football League is over before it got a chance to begin. Eagles defensive lineman Michael Bennett pushed Wynn back into Tom Brady, which resulted Wynn limping off the field and going to the medical tent.

The 6-foot-2, 310-pound tackle, who was a second-team All-American at Georgia, was able to limp off the field after the first-half play but later was carted away from the sidelines. He walked off on his own power and was later announced to have suffered what was called an ankle injury.

A guard at Georgia, Wynn displayed remarkable athleticism and was slated to see plenty of snaps in the Patriots offensive line rotation.
