New England Patriots rookie offensive tackle Isaiah Wynn will miss the 2018 season with a torn Achilles after he was injured in the first quarter of Thursday's preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
"Patriots' first-round pick, OT Isaiah Wynn, tore his Achilles vs. the Eagles and he will be out for the season, per source. The worst of the preseason on display," Schefter tweeted on Friday.
The Patriots' top pick in last month's draft, Wynn was playing right tackle in his preseason debut. Wynn was blocking a pass rusher when he was injured.
Wynn walked off the field on his own and was examined in the sideline medical tent before being taken by cart to the locker room.
Wynn played left tackle at Georgia but was projected by many to move to guard in the NFL due to a lack of height (just under 6-foot-3) and length (33.5-inch arms).
Wynn played through a torn labrum in his left shoulder for much of his senior season at Georgia and recently had surgery to correct it, which kept him from seeing the field until training camp.
