Patriots lose another defender for the year with a knee injury

The Patriots lose another atarter on defense. Boy they are banged up. The team announced it placed defensive tackle Tommy Kelly on the injured reserve list with a knee injury, ending his season. The team signed offensive lineman Josh Kline to take Kelly’s roster spot.

Kelly was signed in the offseason, started five games and had 2.5 sacks before being injured in Week 5. He was inactive the last three contests.

Chris Jones and Joe Vellano will need to step up big time for the Pats this week against Pittsburgh.
