Patriots LB Fletcher tears ACL

The SportsXchange

Dane Fletcher started at inside linebacker for the Patriots on Thursday, but it turned out the preseason opener will be his only game this season.

Fletcher suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the first quarter of the Patriots' 7-6 win over the Saints and is out for the season.

Fletcher was entering his third season with the Patriots. He started five games last season and had 32 tackles and a forced fumble.
