SALT LAKE CITY – The Week 2 NFL preseason game between the New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers was suspended after a player was injured and carted off the field in the second half.

Patriots-Packers Game Suspended After Bolden Hurt

The Packers hosted the Patriots at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin on Saturday, August 19.

With 10:38 to go in the fourth quarter, New England’s Isaiah Bolden suffered an injury on a 3rd & 7 play from the Patriots’ 25-yard line.

Bolden, a rookie from Jackson State, was attended to by medical personnel, strapped onto a backboard, and carted off the field.

Bill Belichick, head coach of the Patriots, and Matt LaFleur, head coach of the Packers, both agreed to suspend the contest at the 10:38 mark. Officials called the game after the coaches’ agreement.

The Patriots provided an update on Bolden shortly after the game ended.

“Patriots cornerback Isaiah Bolden sustained an injury during the fourth quarter of tonight’s game,” the Patriots announced on social media. “He had feeling in all his extremities, but has been taken to a local hospital for further tests and observation,”

The Patriots were declared winners by the score of 21-17.

Prior to his injury, Bolden had three total tackles and two solo tackles.
