The New England Patriots are expected to have their full assortment on the offensive line in 2020, as offensive tackle Yodny Cajuste is “healthy and good to go,” according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss.
The positive update on Cajuste, a third-round pick of the Patriots in 2019 (101st overall), comes after the 24-year-old missed his entire rookie season due to a quadriceps injury suffered in Mar. 2019.
A three-year starter at West Virginia (30 of Cajuste’s 31 appearances came with starts at tackle), the 6-foot-5 Cajuste concluded his collegiate career with Big 12 Conference Co-Offensive Lineman of the Year and All-Big 12 Conference First Team honors.
Cajuste’s clean bill of health adds him to an offensive line featuring starters Isaiah Wynn and Marcus Cannon, and with Korey Cunningham still on the roster despite not playing much at all in 2019. The Patriots also added Wake Forest lineman Justin Herron with the No. 195 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft last month.
