The Patriots defense suffered its first setback of the day in the third quarter.
The dominant unit lost defensive back Patrick Chung to an arm injury shortly after the second half started.
Chung, one of the team’s leaders, had an air cast put on his right arm and the cart came onto the field, though he walked off the field without it. The Patriots quickly announced he would not return to the game.
The Patriots defense has dominated the game thus far, shutting out the Rams through the first two and a half quarters.
