Noone ever wants to see players injured, but where the team's concerned, I have nothing but ill wishes for the Cheats. Here's the article, they've already lost their 3rd round rookie LB for the year:

Patriots third-round pick McKenzie injures knee, is out for year
Associated Press

BOSTON -- New England Patriots third-round draft pick Tyrone McKenzie will miss the 2009 season because of a torn ligament in his right knee.

Tyrone McKenzie, LB
New England Patriots

Age: 23
Height: 6-2 Weight: 243
College: South Florida
Experience: Rookie

The outside linebacker from South Florida tore his anterior cruciate ligament during rookie minicamp Saturday and will be sidelined for the year, a person familiar with the injury said Wednesday night on condition of anonymity because the team didn't make an announcement.

McKenzie was hurt when he and a running back made contact during a pass-coverage drill. McKenzie fell and grabbed his right knee, but he walked off the field on his own. He didn't return for the second session of the day.

The Patriots drafted McKenzie with their second pick of the third round, 97th overall.

With the trade of longtime starter Mike Vrabel to the Kansas City Chiefs in February, the Patriots needed depth at outside linebacker. Adalius Thomas started last season before being injured. Pierre Woods took over for him, then was sidelined himself.

McKenzie started his college career in 2004 as a backup at Michigan State, then transferred to Iowa State, where he started in 2006 after sitting out a year as required by the NCAA. He transferred to South Florida, where he started 24 of his 26 games and led the team in tackles in each of his two seasons.

Call me a softie. I feel bad for the guy. First he gets drafted by the Pats* - then he gets this injury double-whammy.

I don't wish a season ending injury on anyone, not even a Pats* player. I do however wish un-stoppable, never ending diarrhea for Bill Belicheat. And Tom Brady on any day he is playing the Steelers.
