New England Patriots

Just days away from the official start of training camp, the New England Patriots will begin their training camp with four players on the physically unable to perform list, one on the non-football illness list, and one on the non-football injury list.

On the physically unable to perform list: Wide receiver Kenny Britt, safety Nate Ebner, and cornerbacks Cyrus Jones and Jonathan Jones. Brandon Bolden is on the non-football illness list, while Cody Hollister is on the non-football injury list.

Britt’s trip to the PUP list is tied to the hamstring injury that limited him in this spring’s on-field activities at Gillette Stadium. A late-season addition to the roster, Britt contributed two catches and totaled 23 yards in his three games with New England. In a 2017 season split between the Browns and Pats, Britt totaled 256 yards and two touchdowns on 20 receptions.

Both Nate Ebner and Cyrus Jones are coming off season-ending knee injuries sustained last season. Jones, who seems to be entering make-or-break time on his tenure with the Patriots, tore his ACL last preseason. Ebner suffered the same injury, too, but much later in the season. Per The Athletic’s Jeff Howe, Jones could be cleared by his knee surgeon later this week.

Jonathan Jones, meanwhile, is coming off an ankle injury that knocked him out of action last postseason.

The good news for all players involved, though, is that they can be activated at any point during camp.

The Pats will start on-field training camp sessions this Thursday at 9:15 a.m. on the practice fields behind Gillette Stadium.

All four sessions, which run from Thursday through Sunday, are open to the public.
