DeVante Parker, a receiver for the New England Patriots, had a knee injury on Sunday and had to leave the game against the New York Jets.
Parker may only miss one game due to his knee strain, as reported by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
As Rapoport said, this is "excellent news" for the Northeast.
The veteran receiver left Sunday's game after only one play and was subsequently declared out with a knee injury.
To hear that Parker looks to have escaped serious ligament injury that would have forced him to miss significant playing time is good news.
Parker's debut season with the Patriots has been marked by his significant contributions to the passing game.
