The Patriots are getting more bodies back on the offensive line ahead of a tough matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.
As reported by ESPN’s Field Yates on Saturday, the Pats are activating tackle Isaiah Wynn from the reserve/COVID-19 list, and there’s “a chance” they get him back in the active lineup on Sunday at Gillette Stadium. Wynn, however, hasn’t practiced for two weeks since being placed on the COVID list.
The Patriots got left guard Mike Onwenu back earlier in the week, and he did not appear on the injury report for the game against Dallas. Right guard Shaq Mason has already been ruled out with an abdomen injury, though. Tackle Justin Herron missed practice Thursday and was limited on Wednesday and Friday, and is listed as questionable for the game.
If Wynn goes back into the starting lineup, here’s a rough projection of the Pats’ offensive line on Sunday:
LT Isaiah Wynn
LG Mike Onwenu
C David Andrews
RG Ted Karras

But there’s all kinds of uncertainty at the tackle spots, in particular. So this will be a situation to monitor closely within the next 24 hours.
