FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - New England running back Kevin Faulk
says he'll miss the rest of the Patriots' season with a torn knee
Faulk said Wednesday that he will undergo surgery for the injury
to his right knee. He hurt his anterior cruciate ligament in
Sunday's 28-14 loss at the New York Jets.
Faulk is an offensive captain and the longest-tenured player on
the Patriots. He has been a valuable player as a passing threat,
blocker and runner. He also has been an outstanding punt returner.
His loss leaves the Patriots with four running backs, Fred
Taylor, Sammy Morris, BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Danny Woodhead.
