Chad Ochocinco Injury Update: Patriots WR Out Vs. Eagles

New England Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco was downgraded from questionable to out Saturday and will miss Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Ochocinco is suffering from a hamstring injury, but based on his statistics this season, it would seem like he's missed more than one game, with Sunday being the first he will miss this season. Ochocinco, acquired from the Cincinnati Bengals this offseason, has just 11 receptions for 201 yards and is still searching for his first touchdown catch. Ochocinco has only been targeted by Tom Brady 21 times this season.

Even without Ochocinco, the Patriots are in for a test Sunday against the 4-6 Eagles, who are in desperation mode in their attempt to secure a playoff spot in the NFC.
