Roberts was forced out of Sunday's game against the Dolphins due to an undisclosed injury, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Roberts exited Sunday's game midway through the second half and did not return. The starting linebacker was spotted, "walking gingerly" in the locker room after the contest, but the severity of Roberts' injury has yet to be disclosed. Expect an update on the third-year pro's health if he's unable to participate in practice during Week 5.
Roberts had four tackles (three solo) and two sacks against the Dolphins on Sunday.
The second-year pro had never posted a sack before Sunday, so this performance shouldn't be counted on. Roberts played just 34 of 61 possible defensive snaps, though, which makes it tough for him to be a weekly asset.
Roberts (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Roberts sat out last week's tilt but was able to participate in practice in a limited fashion this week. Expect Roberts to see significant time against the Chargers.
Roberts (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Roberts was a limited practice participant this week after sitting out last Sunday's win over the Falcons. If the 23-year-old is unable to play against the Chargers, the Patriots' linebacker depth could be severely tested with Dont'a Hightower (pectoral) now lost for the season. Trevor Reilly and Marquis Flowers are currently the team's only available reserves at the position.
Roberts is inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons.
Roberts and backup linebacker Harvey Langi both being inactive opens the door for Marquis Flowers and David Harris to see additional snaps. The Patriots run defense will be challenged by a high-powered Atlanta running game that features the likes of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman.
