The Seattle Seahawks fear linebacker Bruce Irvin tore his ACL during Sunday night's victory against the visiting New England Patriots, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Monday.

Irvin was injured in the fourth quarter of the 35-30 win, ending his night with two tackles and one quarterback hit.

Coach Pete Carroll called the injury a sprain after the game but said the 32-year-old Irvin would need more tests.

Irvin was reportedly walking around the locker room on Sunday night. He also wrote "Im good!" in a social media post.

A first-round pick (15th overall) by Seattle in the 2012 NFL Draft, Irvin played four seasons and won a Super Bowl with the Seahawks before signing with the Raiders in 2016.

He re-signed with Seattle this April after playing in 13 games last season with the Carolina Panthers.

Irvin has appeared in 121 career games (92 starts) and has 308 tackles, 52 sacks, 118 quarterback hits, 16 forced fumbles and three interceptions with the Seahawks (2012-15, 2020), Raiders (2016-18), Atlanta Falcons (2018) and Panthers (2019).
