The Patriots’ injury questions for Week 2 will linger into the weekend
Will the New England Patriots will be shorthanded on Sunday night when the host the Miami Dolphins for a Week 2 matchup? That question will linger into the weekend.
Despite having multiple players miss multiple days of practice this week, the Patriots didn’t rule any players out for Sunday’s game on Friday’s injury report. Offensive linemen Trent Brown (concussion) and Sidy Sow (concussion) missed practice all three days this week, and are listed as questionable.
So is cornerback Jonathan Jones (ankle), who was added to the injury report as limited on Thursday and then didn’t practice on Friday. Jones is generally a key part of the Patriots’ coverage plan against Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill, making his status one to monitor.
In addition, guards Mike Onwenu (ankle) and Cole Strange (knee), and wide receiver DeVante Parker (knee) are questionable for Sunday. The three were limited all week.
There was good news for the Patriots injury-wise on Friday. Both center David Andrews (hamstring) and wide receiver Kayshon Boutte (hamstring) were removed from the injury report after being limited Wednesday and Thursday.
The Dolphins have four players listed as questionable for Sunday – tackle Terron Armstead (back/ankle/knee), tight end Julian Hill (ankle), linebacker Jaelan Phillips (back), and defensive back Elijah Campbell (knee). Six players were removed from Miami’s injury report on Friday, including running back Raheem Mostert (knee), wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (oblique), and cornerback Xavien Howard (thumb).
