Patrick will thus need to be operated and will miss the whole season, according to the network NFL Network.
During a training session with his family, the 28-year-old athlete jumped to catch a ball. It was by falling to the ground that he collapsed, before being pushed away from the field with the help of a cart.
The wide receiver was promised a great 2022 campaign with Wilson as a pivot. In 2021, he had caught 53 balls, for 734 yards and five majors, while catching relays from Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock.
