Report: Patriots rookie DE Wise might miss a week with concussion


Patriots rookie defensive end Deatrich Wise, injured in the preseason opener against the Jaguars, might only miss a week with a concussion, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

Wise was spotted on the lower field Monday at the Patriots last open practice in Foxboro before they departed for West Virginia, where they'll conduct joint practices this week with the Houston Texans.

Wise, 6-5, 274, whom the Pats chose out of Arkansas in the fourth round with the 131st overall pick, sustained the injury on the Jaguars’ third drive of the game Thursday night. He had been impressive in training camp before getting hurt. 

The injury occurred on a running play, with Wise remaining down before eventually walking off the field. A TV shot showed him stumbling as he took a step walking off the field.
