FOXBOROUGH – Patriots safety Steve Gregory broke his thumb Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, a league source confirmed to the Globe's Ben Volin.

Gregory left the game in the third quarter with a towel over his hand and will be out for a few weeks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, who was first to report the injury.

But a source tells Volin that Gregory may play in the team's next game, Monday Nov. 18, against the Carolina Panthers. With the bye week in between, there's optimism that he might be able to play with a week's rest and a cast on.

This season, Gregory has tallied 52 combined tackles and two broken-up passes. Rookie Duron Harmon, who replaced Gregory in the lineup Sunday, will likely start in his place. Harmon has eight tackles and two interceptions this season.
