New England Patriots tackle Nate Solder out for the season

Football News

The New England Patriots have made an absolutely fantastic start to the season, going unbeaten through the first five weeks of the campaign.

In those games, the Patriots offense has been incredible, being able to call whatever play they want and for it to work. In fact, the New England passing game has been so effective that Tom Brady is on course for the first 5,500-yard season in NFL history.

Key Man Injured

That could all be set to change however, with the news that star left tackle Nate Solder has suffered a serious injury.

According to a report from Jim McBride of the Boston Globe, Solder will miss the rest of the season thanks to a torn right bicep.

Ever-Present Player

Solder has started every game for the Patriots over the last two seasons, and has only missed one game since being taken in the first round of the 2011 Draft out of the University of Colorado.

The 27-year old will likely be replaced by Marcus Cannon, who has served as the primary backup along the Patriots offensive line this season.

We'll have to wait and see if this has a damaging effect on the Patriots offense, or whether head coach Bill Belichick can make the transition a seamless one like he somehow always does.
