Patriots to place Jakob Johnson on injured reserve

The Patriots took another hit at fullback Thursday night, and now it is expected Jakob Johnson will be placed on injured reserve Friday with a shoulder injury, according to a league source.

Johnson had been filling admirably for James Develin, who was placed on IR with a neck injury suffered in Week 2 in Miami.

New England suffered myriad injuries against the Giants, the most notable was a knee injury to Josh Gordon. According to a league source, it’s too early to determine the extent of any of the other injuries, but certainly having 11 days off before the next game should help.
