Dan Koppen Injury: Koppen Breaks Left Ankle In Patriots' Win In Miami

New England Patriots center Dan Koppen broke his left ankle in Monday night's 38-24 season opening victory over the Miami Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida, according to Ian R. Rapoport.

Patriots C Dan Koppen suffered a broken ankle during the Patriots-Dolphins game, I'm told. The team will run more tests tomorrow to see whether there is more damage to the ligaments or the surrounding portions of his leg. But, the early returns are that it may not be a complicated break. In fact, don't rule Koppen out for the season just yet. (via The Rap Sheet)

Koppen was carted off the field with an apparent leg injury (that we now know is a broken ankle) just prior to halftime, with the Patriots leading the Dolphins, 14-7. If Koppen is unable to return, the team may be forced to seek outside help to fill the void, as they are not very deep on the offensive live.
