Patriots CB Arrington leaves game with eye injury
Sunday, January 22, 2012
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- New England Patriots cornerback Kyle Arrington left Sunday's AFC title game against Baltimore in the second quarter with an eye injury.
The Patriots said it was questionable whether Arrington would return.
Arrington tied for the NFL lead this season with seven interceptions. The New England defense has struggled this year, ranking 31st in passing defense and 31st overall in yards allowed in the 32-team NFL.
The Patriots also lost Pro Bowl tackle Vince Wilfork -- but only briefly. He walked slowly off the field before Joe Flacco threw for the Ravens' only first-half touchdown, but returned for the next defensive series. There was no announcement about his condition.
