Patriots list 11 players on first injury report of week
October 12th, 2022
The Patriots had perfect attendance at practice on Wednesday, but a number of players on the roster are still working their way through injuries. There are 11 players listed on Wednesday’s injury report – all limited.
Of those 11 players, four weren’t listed with injuries last week. They are running back Damien Harris (hamstring), wide receiver Nelson Agholor (hamstring), center David Andrews (back), and cornerback Jonathan Jones (ankle).
Harris, Agholor, and Jones all left Sunday’s game early, so it’s not a major surprise to see them listed. It was previously reported that Harris is expected to miss “multiple games” with his injury.
Attention is still locked in on quarterback Mac Jones (ankle) as well. Reports Tuesday morning indicated Jones is getting closer to playing this week, after missing the last two games as he works his way back from a high ankle sprain. Jones appeared to throw the ball well and move with minimal discomfort during the 10-minute window of practice open to the media on Wednesday.
The other players on the report are wide receiver Jakobi Meyers (knee), tight end Jonnu Smith (ankle), defensive linemen Lawrence Guy (shoulder) and DaMarcus Mitchell (concussion), linebacker Raekwon McMillan (thumb), and cornerback Jalen Mills (hamstring). Smith, Guy, and Mitchell were all inactive last week.
There were also three players who were removed from the report after appearing in previous weeks. Tackle Isaiah Wynn (hip) and safeties Kyle Dugger (knee) and Adrian Phillips (ribs) all appear to be healthy.
As for the Browns, they had a handful of key players missing from practice on Wednesday. Starting wide receiver Amari Cooper (not injury related), guard Joel Bitonio (elbow), defensive end Jadeveon Clowney (ankle, knee, elbow), and cornerback Denzel Ward (concussion) were all lsited as non-participants. Defensive end Myles Garrett (shoulder, biceps, hand) was limited.
