New England Patriots pass-rusher Matthew Judon suffered a lower bicep tendon tear in Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Judon, 31, will miss an indeterminate amount of time, according to Schefter.

The four-time Pro Bowl defender appeared to sustain the injury while attempting to tackle Cowboys running back Deuce Vaughn in the fourth quarter.

Judon piled up 12 tackles, five tackles for loss, and four sacks entering Sunday's matchup.

The Grand Valley State product led the Patriots in sacks in both 2021 (12.5) and 2022 (15.5).

New England's defense also lost rookie cornerback Christian Gonzalez, who left the game in the first quarter and didn't return due to a shoulder injury.
