The New England Patriots have had a spectacular run in the past few years. Many would consider giving the credits to Tom Brady. However, there are a few unsung heroes of the franchise who have helped clinch the enormous success. However, one of the former Patriots linebackers has asked his fans to pray for him after suffering an unfortunate incident.

Former NFL linebacker Brandon Spikes was one of New England’s finest defensive athletes. He came into the league as a high skilled linebacker from the University of Florida. He would utterly bludgeon oppositional attacking players. Moreover, under Bill Belichick’s scheme, he appears to be the ideal opponent battlewagon.

Brandon Spikes: New England Patriots’ Defensive Behemoth

While assisting the Gators to win two national titles, they named him to three first-team All-SEC teams and two consensus All-American teams. The New England Patriots selected the LB in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft, and he stayed with the team until 2013.

Spikes played for the Buffalo Bills in 2014 before rejoining the Patriots, though he never saw action during his second tour with the squad. However, he got cut prior to the 2015 season. Brandon had 349 tackles, six forced fumbles, two sacks, and a fumble recovery in his career. With New England, he made it to the Super Bowl once. Even though he didn’t come off a severe injury in his NFL career, this accident looks rather concerning. Any updates over Brandon Spikes’ injury will be reported.
