The New England Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes will miss the Patriots playoff run.

The Patriots will face the Indianapolis Colts without one of their key linebackers. Spikes has been placed on season-ending injured reserve.

He was late to practice last Friday. And he has been dealing with ligament issues in his knee for weeks.

This has come as no surprise that he has been placed on injured reserve. However, missing practice didn’t have anything to do with him being placed on season-ending injured reserve.

The Patriots are hoping to return to the Super Bowl for the first time since the 2011 season. And without Spikes, their top run defender, things are going to be tougher for them to overcome.

While he will not play, he will still collect his money from the team. Then, he will be a free agent after the season.

He is already regarded as the No. 3 available free agent inside linebacker.
