FOXBOROUGH -- Rookie linebacker Tyrone McKenzie, one of the Patriots' two third-round draft choices, did not finish this morning's practice after injuring himself in one-on-one pass-coverage work.
McKenzie, who was covering a running back, remained on the ground after trying to swat away a pass. He was holding his right knee as he was looked at by members of the team's medical/training staff.
McKenzie watched the rest of the practice, standing up, from the sidelines.
The first question Bill Belichick was asked by media members was if it was tough to see McKenzie go down, and if he could provide an update on his status.
"I don't know, we just finished practice," he responded. "We'll have to wait and see."
