Report: Ted Karras 'Might Miss a Game or Two' With 'Relatively Minor' MCL Sprain

Devon Clements

New England Patriots starting center Ted Karras, who suffered a knee injury in Week 13's 28-22 loss to the Houston Texans, is believed to have a "relatively minor" MCL sprain which  may force him to miss a game or two, according to The Athletic's Jeff Howe. 

It's good to hear that Karras' injury isn't serious and that he should return to the starting lineup relatively soon. James Ferentz will fill in for Karras until he is healthy enough to play. 

Hopefully, New England's offensive line can stay productive in the meantime. The Patriots will miss Karras in their Week 14 game against the Chiefs, where New England will likely have to put many points on the board if they want to avoid losing their second game in as many weeks. Karras should return in time for the team's Week 16 game against the Bills, which will be a very important divisional game for the Patriots.

O-Line a spot to keep an eye on

Down to the third string center. Hopefully Ferentz can hold his own against Chris Jones.
