The New England Patriots announced they have placed WR Brandon Gibson on the IR and resigned LB D.J. Lynch.

Gibson hurt his knee late during the preseason game against the Saints on Saturday, after catching 8 passes for 68 yards.

He had an awesome camp and preseason, and was pushing hard for the fourth or fifth WR spot on the team.

According to the NFL Network, the injury is a torn ACL.

WR Chris Harper has been the 2nd best WR behind Gibson through the first two preseason games, and now he will battle it out with veteran WR Reggie Wayne.
