Patriots fans received confirmation that nose tackle Vince Wilfork did indeed have surgery Tuesday to repair his Achilles' tendon when Wilfork's wife, Bianca, tweeted a picture of the recovering Patriot.

Wilfork is expected to miss the remainder of the season.

"Vince is just a phenomenal player both on and off the field for us," Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia said Tuesday. "Defensively from his leadership to his ability to – his work ethic, which is such an incredible example, all of which all of our guys look at and try to model themselves after.

"Certainly injuries are an unfortunate part of the game of football, but that is what it is, and we’re obviously going to expect whoever’s out on the field to perform to the highest level of their ability."
