Josh Boyce Ready to Go

USA Today Sports

Patriots rookie receiver Josh Boyce has made a significant first step towards contributing: getting on the field.

The competition at the wide receiver position is expected to be as wide open as possible this training camp for the Patriots. One player at the position who didn’t see any OTA and minicamp reps, rookie Josh Boyce, is expected to be ready to go from the start.

Boyce, selected by the Patriots in the fourth round of this April’s draft out of TCU, was severely limited this offseason by a foot injury suffered during pre-draft workouts.

The team placed seven players on various inactive lists late last night (Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman, Nick McDonald, Jake Ballard, Armond Armstead, Kanorris Davis, and Matt Stankiewitch) – and Boyce was not among them.

It’s certainly an encouraging sign, and means that Boyce should be ready to get reps at training camp from the get-go. The fact that he will be out there competing, more than anything else, is going to be what counts for now. And by the end of camp, if all goes according to plan, Boyce could be looking at a significant role.

For now, it appears that Boyce has made a significant first step towards contributing: getting on the field.
