Joseph Zucker@@JosephZuckerFeatured ColumnistSeptember 9, 2013

New England Patriots tight end Zach Sudfeld was widely considered to be a significant contributor to the Pats' offense and a sleeper this year in fantasy football. However, he may miss some time after he pulled his hamstring in New England's 23-21 win over the Buffalo Bills in Week 1.

The Boston Globe's Ben Volin confirmed the injury that caused Sudfeld to miss the entire fourth quarter against Buffalo. It leaves Michael Hoomanawanui as the only healthy tight end for the Pats.

To further brighten your day, I'm told Zach Sudfeld pulled a hamstring yesterday. Didn't play in 4th quarter. Hooman only healthy TE

Sudfeld missed Week 2 against the Jets, but is active for Week 3.
