Patriots Place CB Ras-I Dowling On IR

October 26, 2012 Patriots

The New England Patriots have announced that CB Ras-I Dowling has been placed on injured reserve.

Dowling suffered a torn quadriceps muscle. This is the second time in as many seasons that he has ended up on IR, which is quite concerning. Dowling could find himself on the roster bubble come next season, despite the fact that he was the first pick of the second-round back in 2011.
