Sources close to ESPN.com’s Michael Smith have indicated that Pats LB Adalius Thomas could be out for the rest of the season with a broken left forearm he suffered in the first half of Sunday’s 20-10 win over the Bills.
“It’s not good. He’s probably done [for the season],” said one source to Smith.
Reaction: This is a huge loss to an already weak pass rush for the Patriots. Luckily, it appears the defensive line is starting to dominate games this season, like against the Bills when Ty Warren and Vince Wilfork pushed back the Bills’ offensive line on numerous occasions. Still, the loss of Thomas and his five sacks are gigantic.
