McCourty, Brace injured for Pats

There wasn’t much in Chicago — the snow, wind or the Bears — slowing down the Patriots on Sunday, but they did sustain a couple of injuries.

Starting CB Devin McCourty sustained a rib injury late during the first half and was listed as questionable to return, but doesn’t appear to have returned. He was replaced by Darius Butler.

Another key member of the defense, DL Ron Brace, was ruled out after sustaining a head injury late during the third quarter on Chester Taylor’s 1-yard touchdown run. Brace was able to leave the field under his own power.
