The Patriots have placed three players on IR Saturday afternoon, ahead of their matchup with the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

As first reported by ESPN's Field Yates, the team placed left tackle Isaiah Wynn, running back Rex Burkhead, and defensive tackle Carl Davis on three-week injured reserve. Wynn and Burkhead had already been ruled out for Sunday's game, Davis was listed as 'questionable'.

Wynn left last Sunday's loss to the Houston Texans late in the game after having his leg rolled up on. There's been no update on his status other than the clarification it was a knee injury. A first round pick in 2018, Wynn had played a career-high 10 games so far this season.

Burkhead's addition to IR doesn't come as a surprise. The 30-year-old tweeted earlier this week that he will be out for the remainder of the season with a knee injury.

Davis' situation is a bit more concerning. This is the second time a concussion has put him on the shelf in just over a month. Signed by the Patriots off the Jaguars practice squad in mid-October, he's played just three games for New England.

The Patriots can fill the roster spots before Sunday's game, but must do so by 4:30 p.m. on Saturday. For updates on any roster moves, be sure to keep checking 985TheSportsHub.com. And for more on tomorrow's game between the Patriots and Cardinals, check out the Patriots Preview Podcast below.
