Patriots safety Patrick Chung has suffered a right arm injury that knocked him out of the Super Bowl early in the third quarter.

Chung suffered the injury when his right arm was caught between teammate Jonathan Jones’ helmet and Rams running back Todd Gurley’s helmet on a tackle.

While still on his back, Chung pounded the turf in frustration. His arm was placed in a black air cast. The Patriots announced Chung will not return to the game.

A cart came out, but Chung walked off the field for the Patriots locker room with the cart trailing behind.
