Patrick Chung, the Patriots' second-leading tackler behind linebacker Jerod Mayo, left Sunday's game in the second quarter with a knee injury. At the time, the team ruled his return as "questionable," but the safety never returned.
It was apparently a non-contact injury, suffered on the same play when the Chargers' Richard Goodman fumbled, says the Herald's Ian Rapoport, who went back and watched the tape. After the game, Chung said, "It's all right."
Chung, a second-year player drafted out of Oregon, had 13 tackles against the Ravens and has made strides as a key member of the Patriots' secondary this season.
