RICHMOND, Va. — The news is not encouraging regarding one of the younger and more promising members of the Patriots’ defensive line.

Both the Boston Globe and ESPN Boston report that the team is concerned about the severity of the injury to the left hand of Sealver Siliga. The 24-year-old out of Utah injured the hand in Tuesday’s practice and left early. He returned to the practice field without his shoulder pads with about 15 minutes left in practice and did not participate at all on Wednesday.

Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston reports that Siliga returned to Boston to have further tests on the left hand while Ben Volin of the Boston Globe also confirmed the team’s concern about the injury.

Chris Jones took several snaps with the first team defensive line unit on Wednesday, playing with Vince Wilfork and Tommy Kelly in a 3-4 base.

The Patriots signed Siliga to their practice squad on Oct. 23, 2013. On Nov. 27, 2013, Siliga was added to the active roster and played the final five games and both playoff games. He recorded three sacks and 23 tackles in his five regular season games and was projected as one of the up and coming talents on the defensive front.
