Another week, another key injury.
Patriots starting defensive end, Rob Ninkovich, apparently injured his foot on the Steelers' latest touchdown drive off of a Stevan Ridley fumble, which brought the game to 24-17.
It's unclear how serious the injury is, but he was brought to the locker room. Normally not a good sign.
Additionally, Austin Collie was brought to the locker room and the Patriots announced he is out for the game. Significant since rookie Kenbrell Thompkins was a healthy scratch today after getting beat out on the depth chart by Collie.
Ninkovich hobbled off. Appears to be left foot. Headed to locker room with Gill. Collie won't return. And there's a touchdown pass.

Ninkovich is heading to the locker room with Dr. Tom Gill.
