New England Patriots

  • Patriots starting right tackle Isaiah Wynn is one of the biggest status questions facing the team this week. Wynn missed a week and a half of practices in the middle of training camp, then multiple sessions last week. He returned to the field on Wednesday, when it was revealed via the team’s injury report that he has been dealing with a back injury. Still, he’s been out there all week, although limited.

    “It’s been real good. I’m excited to go out there Sunday,” Wynn said on Friday when asked how he’s feeling physically after a week of practice. Pressed for a follow-up as to whether or not that’s his way of saying he’ll be in the starting lineup against the Dolphins, Wynn replied, “I’ve been practicing all week. I’m here.”

    The next official update from the team on Wynn’s status will come Friday afternoon, when the final injury report of the week is released. That will include game statuses for Sunday.

  • Because he missed so much time over the summer, Wynn hasn’t spoken to the media much – even has his name has come up repeatedly in trade rumors. On Friday, he was finally asked about his reaction to those reports.

    “I don’t pay attention to that. I’m worried about the game on Sunday,” Wynn explained. “We’ve got a game, so I ain’t worried about none of that.”

    Wynn is currently in the final year of his contract, playing under the fifth-year option. Drafted in the first round in 2018, he spent four seasons as the Patriots’ left tackle before moving to the right side this spring.
