Patriots_Vince_Wilfork_2013 [1]When Vince Wilfork was taken off the field in a cart, with his shoe and sock off on his right foot, you knew it wasn’t good. A source has told the Herald the Patriots defensive captain has suffered a torn Achilles and is done for the remainder of the season.

The loss of the defensive lineman is significant. He’s the cornerstone of the front seven. He routinely takes up two blockers, freeing up others to make tackles or get to the quarterback. He has dominated games on occasion. His absense will be felt.
