Patriots' Dan Koppen, Myron Pryor Placed On Season-Ending Injured Reserve

The Patriots made a surprise move today sending Dan Koppen to IR, officially ending his season. Koppen was expected to return from his ankle injury within 6-8 weeks, but the team felt it necessary to let the injury heal correctly.

The New England Patriots got some bad news today when it was announced that center Dan Koppen was placed on the injured reserve list, meaning that his season is over.

Koppen, who suffered a severe sprain of ankle during the Patriots week one win over the Miami Dolphins, was originally scheduled to be out between six and eight weeks to let the injury heal to the point where he could play again.  The team decided afterwards though that it was more important to let the ankle recover completely, which would have made the timetable 10-12 weeks. Not willing to wait that long, the team decided to place him on IR.

In addition to ending Koppen's season, the team also announced that defensive lineman Myron Pryor's season is done following a groin injury that has forced the inside rusher to leave Sunday's game with the San Diego Chargers early.

The Patriots also announced a pair of free agent signings in defensive lineman Landon Cohen and cornerback Phillip Adams.
