Patriots Cut Starting DT Kyle Love After Diabetes Diagnosis
The New England Patriots released defensive tackle Kyle Love on Wednesday after he was diagnosed with diabetes.
Love had lost about 20 pounds before receiving the diagnosis about two weeks ago then gained about half of it back, Richard Kopelman, his agent, said.
He said Love has Type 2 diabetes, which is less serious than Type 1, and was working out at Gillette Stadium on Wednesday before being released. The Patriots did not mention the diagnosis in a statement announcing the move.
''They expressed some concern that they didn't know what the recovery time would be and, in their view, didn't want to leave something to chance,'' Kopelman said. ''That's OK. There are 31 other teams in the NFL.''
Love started the first 11 games last season next to Vince Wilfork.
