Bad news for Patriots' defensive end Derek Rivers.
The 23-year-old DE has suffered a leg injury this morning, in a joint practice with the Houston Texans. According to Boston Herald's Jeff Howe, we have yet to know how severe the injury is but the Pats are optimistic:
Rivers was drafted in the third round, 83rd overall, of the 2017 NFL draft out of Youngstown State. Many experts claim the 6-foot-4, 250-pound could be this year's steal.
