ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -New England running back Kevin Faulk sustained a head injury after catching a 10-yard pass Sunday and the team said his return to the Patriots game with Buffalo was doubtful.
The injury occurred midway in the second quarter after Faulk caught a pass from Tom Brady and was hit by Buffalo's Donte Whitner at the Bills 11-yard line. He sat on the ground, then walked off the field and sat on the bench.
Faulk is the Patriots' third-down back. He was third on the team in rushing entering the game and fourth in receiving with 25 catches.
