The latest update on Patriots TE Mike Gesicki’s injury during camp practice originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Mike Gesicki is expected to play a significant role in the New England Patriots offense during the 2023 NFL season, which is why it was concerning that the veteran tight end was forced to leave Monday’s training camp early with an upper body injury.
ESPN’s Mike Reiss and MassLive’s Mark Daniels tweeted details of the play and how Gesicki left the field.
The Patriots don’t have much depth behind Gesicki and Hunter Henry. Therefore, losing Gesicki for a period of time would be a real setback for the New England offense.
The Patriots signed Gesicki to a one-year free agency contract in March after he spent five seasons with the Miami Dolphins. The 25-year-old tight end tallied 32 receptions for 362 yards and three touchdowns in 17 games for the Dolphins last season.
Gesicki has also been quite durable in his career. He missed just one game in five career seasons.
