It's not looking good for Derek Rivers.

The Patriots' top pick in the 2017 NFL Draft has reportedly suffered a torn ACL. He is going to seek a second opinion before having surgery, but it's likely his season is over.

The loss of Rivers is a big one for New England, who are thin at defensive end. Don't be surprised if they sign someone once other teams start making roster cuts.
