Former Clemson linebacker Stephone Anthony was injured in the second quarter of the NFL preseason game against the New England Patriots.

Anthony was hit hard on a block by New England Patriots tight end Clay Harbor and was put on a cart and taken to the locker room according to multiple reports. Anthony was not on the sidelines for the second half of the game as medical staff was with him in the locker room.

Coach Sean Payton declined to comment to reporters on Anthony's health status after Thursday's game except saying, "We'll see."

Anthony was projected to be the Saints' strongside linebacker this season after leading the Saints in tackles with 112 tackles and also forced two fumbles, a sack and had an interception and was named to the Professional Football Writers Association All-Rookie team for 2015.

He was the first Saints' rookie to reach 100 tackles since Ricky Jackson in 1981.
