New England Patriots starting center Bryan Stork has been ruled out of Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts due to a knee injury.

Stork suffered the injury in the first half of New England's win over the Baltimore Ravens in the divisional round of the playoffs last Saturday.

The Patriots selected Stork in the fourth round of this year's draft out of Florida State. He has started 12 games this season.

Ryan Wendell is expected to fill in for Stork.
