Last year’s defensive player of the year, Stephon Gilmore, went down with a non-contact knee injury and is doubtful to return, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. The “non-contact” part of this injury along with a quick doubtful designation is a bad sign.

The Patriots are up 6-0 at halftime against the Dolphins and rookie Tua Tagovailoa.
