One player upgraded, one player downgraded on Thursday’s Patriots injury report
Wednesday’s New England Patriots injury report – the first of the season – was relatively clean given all of the injury scares the team had towards the end of training camp. Following Thursday’s practice there were two changes to the report, with one upgrade and one downgrade.
Starting with the good news, offensive tackle Trent Brown (illness) was removed from the report entirely. Brown was listed as limited on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, cornerback Jack Jones (hamstring) did not practice on Thursday. That’s a step back from Wednesday, when he was limited.
The Patriots did have three players whose statuses remained unchanged on Wednesday. Wide receiver DeVante Parker (knee) and offensive linemen Mike Onwenu (ankle) and Cole Strange (knee) were all limited for the second day in a row.

On the other side, the Eagles made two changes to their injury report. Cornerback Josh Jobe (illness) was upgraded from a limited to full participant, while fellow cornerback Mario Goodrich (illness) was added as a limited participant.
The two teams will have one more injury report this week, released on Friday. That will include game statuses for Sunday’s opener.
The Brady 23: Recounting the 23 best games of Tom Brady's career
When Tom Brady first ‘retired’ after the 2021 season, the Sports Hub’s Alex Barth, Matt McCarthy, and Tim McKone compiled a list of ‘the 22 best Tom Brady games’ for his 22 years in the NFL. That list was originally going to be accompanied by a podcast including highlights and reflection on those games.
Before the whole project could be put together though, the unimaginable happened – Brady returned for a 23rd NFL season. Suddenly, his resume was one again ‘in progress.’
This past February Brady retired again, this time for good (we think). With his playing days now behind him (again, we assume), he’ll return to Gillette Stadium this Sunday to be honored by the Patriots on the first Sunday he won’t be on an NFL roster since 1999.
In celebration of Brady’s return, we’ve dug up the original ‘Brady 22,’ and turned it into the ‘Brady 23’ to accommodate his final season in the NFL. Unfortunately, the podcast is lost to the ages, but here is the list of the top 23 Tom Brady games of his NFL career from Barth, McCarthy, and McKone…
