  • Falcons' Brandon Copeland: Undergoes surgery

He'll now focus on returning healthy next season.

  • Patriots' Brandon Copeland: Shifts to injured reserve

    Copeland (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

  • Patriots' Brandon Copeland: Will be shut down for season

    Copeland suffered a torn pectoral muscle in Sunday's loss to the 49ers and will be shut down for the season, Zach Cox of NESN.com reports.

    Copeland is on a one-year deal with the team, so this may have been the 29-year-old's last game with New England. Although he started four games for the Patriots, Copeland logged just 16 percent of the defensive workload this season. Rookie Anfernee Jennings and Cassh Maluia could absorb the reps Copeland leaves behind. Copeland is expected to land on injured reserve at some point this week.

    The Patriots have listed Copeland (knee) as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Seahawks.

    Copeland's availability at practice was limited all week, so his questionable designation is not all that surprising. If he is ultimately unable to give it a go, look for some combination of Anfernee Jennings and Cassh Maluia to replace his snaps at inside linebacker.
