Multiple starters cleared for both Patriots and Jets on Friday injury report
This week has seen both the New England Patriots and New York Jets tracking injury situations for multiple starting players ahead of their Week 3 matchup on Sunday. However, Friday’s injury report brought good news for both sides.
For the Patriots, both wide receiver DeVante Parker (knee) and tackle Trent Brown (concussion) were removed from the injury report entirely on Friday after being limited Wednesday and Thursday. While Parker played last week, Brown was out and was a significant absence as the Patriots’ offensive line struggled against the Miami Dolphins. Having him back at left tackle this week should be a steadying presence against a Jets’ defensive front that is one of the best in the league.

That leaves five Patriots players questionable for Sunday’s game – offensive linemen Mike Onwenu (ankle), Cole Strange (knee), and Sidy Sow (concussion), defensive lineman Christian Barmore (knee), and cornerback Jonathan Jones (ankle). All five were limited at practice on Friday. Sow, specifically, was in a red non-contact jersey for the first time this week on Friday, after not practicing Thursday.
As for the Jets, they removed five players from their injury report on Friday. That includes running back Breece Hall (knee), starting right tackle Mekhi Becton (knee), linebacker Quincy Williams (knee), and slot corner Michael Carter II (elbow).
Three players for the Jets remain questionable. That group is starting left tackle Duane Brown (shoulder, hip), who missed all three days of practice this week, as well as defensive end John Franklin-Myers (hip) and kicker Greg Zuerlein (right groin) who were both full participants on Friday.
The Jets did rule two players out. Starting safety Tony Adams (hamstring) and backup guard Wes Schweitzer (concussion) both won’t play on Sunday.
