The New England Patriots suffered a potentially big—both literally and figuratively—loss early during Sunday night's matchup with the Atlanta Falcons.

Defensive tackle Vince Wilfork was forced from the game in the first quarter with an apparent leg injury. After the game, it was reported that Wilfork had torn his Achilles.

The Patriots officially placed him on IR on Oct. 3.
