The New England Patriots suffered a big blow to open the second half of the Super Bowl when safety Patrick Chung suffered an arm injury.
The 10-year veteran and two-time Super Bowl champion with the Patriots left the field with an aircast on his right arm after a collision during the Los Angeles Rams’ opening drive of the third quarter as he tackled Todd Gurley.
Chung walked off the field after declining to take the medical cart.
Chung ruled out
The Patriots announced that he would not return to the game.
Chung started 14 games this season, tallying 84 tackles an interception and a 1/2 sack.
He was also one of the Patriots’ most vocal cheerleaders before the game, leading a “Beat L.A.” cheer at New England’s pre-Super Bowl pep rally.
“We gonna go out there and kick their ass, baby,” Chung told thousands of Patriots fans at a Gillette Stadium pep rally.
