While the Patriots blew the Steelers out, 33-3, Sunday night, everything wasn't all positive.

Listen to your team news NOW.

One of the negatives was a shoulder injury to Marcus Cannon in the fourth quarter. After being down for several minutes, the right tackle walked to the sideline and threw his helmet, as he was clearly frustrated and in pain.

It looks like he will miss some time.

According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, Cannon's injury is not considered season-ending or long-term in nature, but he will miss some time.

For the remainder of the game, the team moved Joe Thuney to right tackle and inserted Jermaine Eluemunor at left guard. It's unclear if this will be the solution for the games Cannon has to miss, or if the team would feel comfortable with backup tackle Korey Cunningham, who was inactive Sunday, being ready for starting action.

More will be known as the week goes on.
