According to Mike Klis of 9News, an MRI on WR Tim Patrick confirms an ACL injury, ending his season.
Patrick was a popular late-round target for fantasy managers as he has been one of the most sneakily productive WRs over the last few seasons. Patrick had back-to-back 700-yard seasons with five-plus touchdowns while racking in nearly 14 yards per catch and finishing as WR39 and WR40 the last two seasons. He will have to wait until 2023 to pair up with QB Russell Wilson as he recovers from his ACL tear.
