FOXBORO (WBZ-AM) -- The Patriots' top draft pick is out for the season, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Schefter reports that the Pats' first-round pick Isaiah Wynn tore his Achilles tendon during Thursday night's preseason victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. Wynn was carted off the field.

The offensive lineman had been working as the backup left tackle, and this week, was mixing in with starters at right tackle.
WBZ-TV's Levan Reid said the loss of Wynn leaves the Patriots' offensive line a little thin.
"He was trying to make some strides in camp, and they had trusted him with the left tackle spot which is, at times here and there, Tom Brady's blind side," he said. "But two, for the team, it taps their depth. They're going to have to find more bodies to kind of fill when guys get tired and when injuries do pop up, so it's a tough thing."
