Starting left tackle Nate Solder has suffered a torn right biceps and will miss the rest of the season, according to a report from the Boston Globe's Jim McBride. McBride reports surgery will take place shortly. The injury apparently happened in the first half on Sunday when he came out of the game and was replaced by Marcus Cannon. Solder was beaten once by Greg Hardy for a sack as part of a very rough first half for the Patriots offensive line that allowed five sacks. Solder came out of the game with what was termed an elbow injury. Asked about his elbow on Monday, Solder said it was fine and not an issue. Apparently, that was not the case with his biceps. Solder signed a two-year, $20 million extension through 2017 on Sept. 5 that includes a $12 million signing bonus. Now, it appears the Patriots will realize some of the value of the two-year, $9 million extension that Cannon signed last season.
