Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore was ruled out after leaving Sunday’s matchup with the Dolphins after suffering what the team described as a knee injury.

Gilmore, 30, went down to the ground on a third down with just under three and a half minutes remaining in the second quarter. As he tried to cover Dolphins receiver Mack Hollins, Gilmore stopped to pivot, but slid and fell down grabbing his right leg.
