New England Patriots rookie defensive lineman Deatrich Wise may miss one week as a result of a concussion he suffered on Thursday night against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to Jeff Howe of The Boston Herald.

Howe says that Wise has felt well since the diagnosis.

Wise, who played his college football at the University of Arkansas, was selected by the Patriots in the fourth round (131st pick overall) of the NFL Draft back in April.

He has been very impressive in training camp, working with New England’s starters most of the time.

The 23-year-old Wise played his entire collegiate career at Arkansas, redshirting during his first season in 2012.

Wise did not begin receiving significant playing time until his junior campaign in 2015, when he played in 12 games and registered 31 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, eight sacks and three forced fumbles.

Last year, during his final season with the Razorbacks, Wise tallied 49 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks with one forced fumble.

Prior to those two years, Wise had posted just 30 stops, six tackles for loss and four sacks combined over his first two seasons with the team.

The Patriots fell to the Jaguars 31-24 in that preseason contest.

They will play their next preseason affair when they head on the road to take on the Houston Texans next Saturday.

The defending Super Bowl champions will open up their regular season on Thursday, Sept. 7, when they play host to the Kansas City Chiefs at 8: 30 p.m. ET.
