DRACUT (CBS) – A Dracut boy is showing his Patriots pride on his arm cast.

Young Evan Mercier broke his wrist while snowboarding a few weeks ago. Dr. Taylor Horst of Excel Orthopaedics in Woburn came up with an idea.

“His doctor knows he’s a big Pats fan, so he created an amazing cast for him!” said Evan’s mother, Pattie Mercier.

It’s not clear how long Even will have to wear the cast, but his family is glad that Patriots Nation is helping to put a smile on Evan’s face, while he is healing from his injury.
