·1 min read

The injury bug continues to bite for the New England Patriots on the defensive side of the ball with linebacker Ja’Whaun Bentley going down with a back injury.

Per the team, Bentley is questionable to return.

It’s another big loss for a Patriots team that’s also playing without defensive back Kyle Dugger, who is listed as questionable with a knee injury. The Patriots are locked in a tough defensive battle with the Pittsburgh Steelers at Acrisure Stadium.

On the drive without Bentley and Dugger on the field, quarterback Mitchell Trubisky and the Steelers offense marched the ball down the field for a touchdown.
