Patriots Defensive Lineman Ruled Out

The New England Patriots had a slow start to the 2022 season, but in Week 6, they are looking dominant against a very talented Cleveland Browns team, they'll need to finish the win without a key piece to their offensive line, as Christian Barmore has officially been ruled out for the rest of the game due to a knee injury.

The 23-year old was a second round pick in 2021, and is a key part of the future of a very talented defensive unit, with 2.5 sacks early in his young career, but today, he will play no further part in the teams crucial matchup with the Browns, which they need to win to stay alive in the AFC East divisional battle. 

The defence has remained strong, as they've held the Browns to just 9 points through three quarters, and if Barmore can get healthy and return next week, this is a unit that's good enough to lead the Patriots to a potential AFC Wild Card spot in 2022.
