This is a big hit to the team’s wide receiver room, and it takes away their most productive playmaker at the position.
Bourne was on his way to having another solid year. He had three catches for 36 yards and a touchdown against the Dolphins on Sunday. He had 37 catches for 406 yards and four touchdowns on the year. Now, the Patriots must look to replace his production in what is an already thin wide receiver room.
Patriots Twitter was saddened by the news, as the injury hits keep coming for New England.
All out for the season😪
Judon out until December

Hearing Kendrick Bourne is out for the season with a torn ACL is tough news. Super high on him coming into the year. Hoping for a speedy recovery #ForeverNE

Oh no Kendrick Bourne SZN is over 😭

The Patriots are bad, let’s not get it twisted, but they’ve had wild injury luck.
Christian Gonzalez, Matthew Judon, Marcus Jones and Kendrick Bourne are all down for the season. That’s their best rookie, offensive player and defensive player — plus an All-Pro return specialist.

Waking up and seeing the Kendrick Bourne news is brutal
Praying for a speedy recovery

Season was already a lost cause. Now we lose Kendrick Bourne, our most exciting and productive receiver. Unbelievable man.

Really upset about Kendrick Bourne tearing his ACL. Hope he can recover and hope he returns to New England next year.

Kendrick Bourne deserved so much better than how he was treated in New England.

Kendrick Bourne with a torn ACL is the final nail in coffin.
Season is over. Time to sell, sell, sell!
Time to rebuild.

Kendrick Bourne too wow

Kendrick Bourne is the team's leader in snaps, targets, and receptions at wide receiver. He is undoubtedly their WR1.

Two season-ending injuries in one day: Kendrick Bourne and now Kirk… so sad yo see.
— Braijon Williams (@B_Willz14) October 30, 2023
The Patriots mediocre offense even lost their best player for the season (Kendrick Bourne), and still I have not confidence that they won’t make Mac Jones look like Tom Brady Jr next Sunday 🤦🏽♂️

Hope Kendrick Bourne has a great comeback next year man that sucks he’d been playing so well
