Description: The Patriots lost another member of their secondary for the 2010 season, placing S Brandon McGowan on the season-ending injury reserve list Saturday.
Insight: This secondary continues to pile on the bad news for coach Belichick. It keeps getting younger and less experienced by the day. McGowan has been held out most of camp with an undisclosed chest injury, although speculation is he has a torn pectoral muscle. McGowan was expected to line up all over the field because of his versatility. He finished 2009 with 79 tackles and 3 forced fumbles.
