Say it ain't so! After suffering an injury towards the end of the Falcons game, NBC Sports and many other sources are reporting that the Patriots Pro Bowl linebacker and Team Captain will be out for the rest of the season.

The Patriots have finally started playing great defensive football and Dont'a is THE MOST important cog in the wheel as both a linebacker AND a play caller.

His skills in recognizing offensive sets and directing the defense will be missed much more than I can convey in two or three sentences.

It'll be interesting to see who will be wearing 'The Green Dot' when they face The Chargers on Sunday.

We'll have COMPLETE coverage of this game with the full three hour Pats Preview starting at 10am right here on 102-1 and 105-3 The Shark.
