Patriots could be in the market for a fullback; James Develin suffered a broken leg

Patriots could be in the market for a fullback.

Patriots could be in the market for a fullback.

While the rest of the Patriots flew home yesterday, fullback James Develin stayed in Charlotte, N.C., after reportedly suffering a broken right tibia during Friday night’s 17-16 win over Carolina.

This happened a day after the team released fullback Eric Kettani. Belichick acknowledged a move might be needed, according to the Boston Herald.

“We’ll have to take a look at that,” Belichick said. “I’m not sure right now. It just happened last night. We’ll take a look at what our options are, talk about the situation and figure out what we want to try to do.”

Asked if there were any special precautions he tries to take to avoid injuries in the preseason, Belichick said, “Not really. We just try to do what we feel like is best for each player. Some things during a game that unfortunately happen, you just can’t control.”

The Buffalo Bills currently have John Conner and Jerome Felton, could a trade be coming?
