According to Boston Globe writer Shalise Manza Young, Bradwell alumni Gary Guyton has not been seen at the New England Patriots’ training camp since Sunday.
Reporting on the strength of the Patriots’ inside linebackers Young wrote, "Guyton started all 16 games last season after Tedy Bruschi’s retirement, and was getting most of the snaps with the first team during the first days of camp, before slipping in coverage and hurting his knee Sunday."
She went on to say Guyton has not been seen at practice since, but reported that a league source termed Guyton’s condition as a tweaked knee.
A report posted on the Patriots’ website by Andy Hart of Patriots Football Weekly confirms Guyton has not been seen at practice since Sunday night’s injury.
Guyton is entering his third season as a Patriot linebacker with a new, two-year contract. Last season he covered as the defensive captain while teammate Jerrod Mayo recovered from a sprained medial collateral ligament.
Guyton finished second on the squad with 91 tackles and led the team in total tackles against the Jets, Falcons and Colts. Against the Jets, Guyton hit a single-game career high 13 tackles and he registered his first NFL sack last season against the Bills.
