Patrick Chung Injured, Leaves Eagles-Patriots Game Early

New England Patriots safety Patrick Chung injured his shoulder during Monday night's preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles and is out of the game.

Eagles running back LeSean McCoy took a direct snap around right end before being met near the line of scrimmage by Chung, a 5'11", 207-pound safety. Chung, the Patriots' 2009 second-rounder out of the University of Oregon, appeared to land awkwardly on his shoulder and was slow to get up as he held his right arm.

Chung made his way to the bench with assistance before leaving for the Patriots' locker room, accompanied by trainers.

It came just two plays after Eagles quarterback Michael Vick left the contest with an apparent injury, though it appears Vick will not miss any additional time.
