GLENDALE, Ariz. — Patriots safety Devin McCourty jogged into the sideline medical tent during the fourth quarter of Monday’s 27-13 win at Arizona, the latest in a long line of injured players to receive care.
It was unclear what upper-body part McCourty may have hurt when he tried to tackle Cardinals quarterback Colt McCoy on a scramble play. But after the game, McCourty, 35, indicated he’s just fine.
“I’m straight. Just old,” he told the Herald.
Fourth-round rookie cornerback Jack Jones echoed the first half of that sentiment, saying he’ll be “all right” despite suffering a knee bruise, which kept him off the field after the Patriots’ first defensive series. Jones started the game, but spent the remainder of the first half jogging on the sideline, entering and exiting the medical tent and pedaling on a stationary bike. He was replaced by fellow rookie corner Marcus Jones.
The Patriots ruled Jack Jones at the start of the second half. He recorded zero tackles and one pass deflection, while McCourty finished with two stops.
The Pats will release their next injury report Wednesday evening before returning to action Sunday at Las Vegas for a critical game against the Raiders. Running back Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) and wide receiver DeVante Parker (head) were also lost to injury Monday.
