Sunday’s loss ended up with the Patriots taking what may be a massive hit, with another key defensive player going down for what may be a significant amount of time.

Linebacker Matthew Judon got knocked out of action on Sunday against the Cowboys, with the veteran getting injured while making a tackle on running back Deuce Vaughn early in the fourth quarter.

Reports are saying Judon suffered a biceps injury, which seemingly happened when his arm got hyper-extended after it got caught behind him as he attempted to make the tackle.

There already appeared to be some bad news after the game ended following one of Judon’s teammates slipping and giving reason for worry.

Teammate Deatrich Wise Jr. spoke to reporters after the game and called Judon’s loss “devastating,” with the veteran adding, “We’ll be with him mentally throughout this year, and I know he’ll be with us too.  And there will be some guys behind him who will be stepping up and filling in his spot.”

That essentially made it clear that he’ll be out for a significant amount of time, given Wise’s comments.

When asked if he anticipates if Judon will miss time, Wise appeared to catch himself.

“Really don’t know,” said Wise.  “Just always hate when guys get hurt.  That’s all.”

ESPN’s Adam Schefter has since reported it as a lower biceps tear, with the veteran set to be evaluated to determine how much time he’ll miss.

Judon joins rookie defensive back Christian Gonzalez as the second big hit to New England’s defense.  Gonzalez suffered a reported shoulder injury in Sunday’s loss.
