Wilfork has torn Achilles’ tendon, source says

ATLANTA - It wasn’t good to see Vince Wilfork limp off the field in the first half of the Patriots’ win over Atlanta, and the news is about as bad as it could be for New England: according to a league source, the veteran tore his right Achilles’ tendon.

The Patriots announced that Wilfork had an ankle injury during the game, and he was spotted leaving the Georgia Dome after the game with his lower leg in a walking boot.
