News: Orton (Achilles') was released by the Patriots on Sunday. Impact: Orton is expected to miss the entire season, after tearing his Achilles' tendon Saturday at camp, so the news that he won't be on the Patriots roster when the season starts comes as no surprise, especially since he's been a practice squad player for most of his career.(RotoWire, )

News: The injury that Orton suffered during Friday's practice is believed to a torn Achilles, the Boston Herald reports. Impact: Given the Patriots' depth at wide receiver, Orton was viewed as a long shot to make the team's roster, with Friday's injury presumably ending his 2014 season, in any case.(RotoWire, )

News: Orton was carted off the field during Friday's practice, Ben Volin of the Boston Globe reports. Impact: Orton suffered the injury on a non-contact play, so this is definitely cause for concern.
