New England Patriots veteran nose guard Vince Wilfork's season is over.
Wilfork tore his Achilles and will likely be placed on injured reserve, according to the Boston Globe.
Wilfork is in a walking boot and was injured during a win over the Atlanta Falcons at the Georgia Dome.
Rookie defensive tackle Joe Vellano sacked Matt Ryan during the game, but the Patriots will need reinforcements as they try to replace an indispensable defender.
