Source: Guyton injury not considered serious

FOXBORO ‘€” According to a league source, the knee injury suffered by Patriots inside linebacker Gary Guyton suffered in camp Sunday afternoon is not serious. ‘€œA tweaked knee with perhaps a couple of days rest,’€ is how the source described Guyton’s situation after the Georgia Tech product went down during a practice session Sunday afternoon.

Guyton appeared to slip on the grass during an 11-on-11 drill, and stayed on the ground for a few moments before walking to the sidelines where he consulted with trainers and coaches. Guyton then walked around the second practice field for a bit but did not participate in any drills. He eventually left the practice field under his own power and without a limp.

The 24-year-old Guyton has spent the last two seasons for the Patriots. Last year, he started all 16 games at inside linebacker and finished the season with 91 tackles and 1½ sacks. Despite the fact he is one of the incumbent inside linebackers, he faces a challenge for playing time this year, as rookie Brandon Spikes and Tyrone McKenzie, who missed all of last season with a knee injury, have looked impressive through the early stages of training camp.
