  • Patriots' Matthew Judon: Out for months after surgery

    Judon (biceps) is scheduled to undergo surgery Wednesday and is expected to miss at least two months, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Judon underwent an MRI on Monday that confirmed he suffered a right lower bicep tendon tear in Sunday's 38-3 loss to the Cowboys. With rest and rehab not deemed a viable option, Judon will go under the knife, and the Patriots will have a clearer idea following the procedure whether or not the star edge rusher will be able to play again this season. A two-month absence would keep Judon sidelined until around Week 15.

  • Patriots' Matthew Judon: Torn biceps tendon feared

    Judon is believed to have suffered a right lower bicep tendon tear in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 38-3 loss to the Cowboys, and he could be facing a long-term absence, Mark Daniels of The Springfield Republican reports.

    The edge rusher will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of the injury, but if a bicep tear is confirmed, Judon could be at risk of missing multiple months if not the remainder of the season. Since joining New England on a four-year deal in March 2021, he has accrued 32 sacks in 38 games while earning Pro Bowl nods in each of his first two seasons with the team. Marte Mapu and Anfernee Jennings would likely be thrust into larger roles while Judon is sidelined.

  • Patriots' Matthew Judon: Getting MRI on biceps

    Judon is being evaluated for a biceps injury and will have an MRI to determine the severity, but he's expected to miss time under any scenario, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Judon exited in the second half of Sunday's 38-3 loss to Dallas with what was initially termed an elbow injury, but Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the injury was actually a lower bicep tendon tear. Losing Judon for any period could have devastating effects for New England's defense, as he had 15.5 sacks last season and has four sacks through four games in 2023.

  • Patriots' Matthew Judon: Hurts elbow in Week 4

    Judon (elbow) is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

    Judon sustained an elbow injury in the second half, adding further bad news to a game in which the Patriots benched starting quarterback Mac Jones and are getting blown out. If Judon's unable to return in Dallas, another update on his status will surface before the Patriots host the Saints in Week 5.

  • Patriots' Matthew Judon: Two more sacks in win

    Judon registered four tackles (two solo), including two sacks, in Sunday's 15-10 win over the Jets.

    Judon's second sack of the game came in the final three minutes of the fourth quarter when he sacked Zach Wilson in the end zone for a safety to extend the Patriots' lead to five. Judon is up to four sacks on the season and will look to continue terrorizing opposing quarterbacks as New England visits Dak Prescott and the Cowboys in Week 4.

  • Patriots' Matthew Judon: Impressive Sunday night

    Judon logged four tackles (four solo) and a sack during the Patriots' 24-17 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday.

    Judon registered the team's only sack of Tua Tagovailoa on Sunday night and has now recorded a sack in each of his first two games. The 31-year-old is on pace for double-digit sacks once again after logging 28 across his first two seasons in New England.

  • Patriots' Matthew Judon: Gets a sack Sunday

    Judon recorded three tackles and a sack in Sunday's 25-20 loss versus Philadelphia.

    The four-time Pro Bowler did what he does best in Week 1, sacking the notoriously elusive Jalen Hurts on a crucial third-and-goal to force a field goal on the first drive of the game. He's on pace for his third consecutive double-digit sack season, and he should have plenty of opportunities to rush the passer in Week 2 versus Tua Tagovailoa and a high-flying Miami offense.

  • Patriots' Matthew Judon: Adjusts contract

    Judon and the Patriots agreed to a contract adjustment Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Judon is now guaranteed $14 million in 2023 -- up from $2 million -- and can make up to $18 million this season. Judon led the Patriots' defense with a career-high 15.5 sacks to go along with 60 tackles, three pass deflections, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery while playing in all 17 games. He's registered 28 sacks over the last two seasons with New England and will continue to be a lynchpin for a Patriots defense that finished eighth in yards allowed per game (322.0) last season.
