Bad news in Foxboro on Sunday after Patriots center Dan Koppen was injured during the first half against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.  Koppen was seen leaving the field and being taken to the locker room, and didn't return.  His return was officially reported by the team as "Questionable".

Meanwhile wide receiver Brandon Tate appeared to tweak his leg during the first half following a second quarter kickoff return.  According to Chris Forsberg of ESPN Tate appeared to injure the same knee that he suffered his ACL, MCL injury on (his left knee).  He was seen being examined by trainers, and later was also seen on the sidelines riding the exercise bike while trying to work out the injury.

We'll have more to come in the second half.
