The New England Patriots’ injured reserve will soon no longer include its top selections from the last two drafts.
Left tackle Isaiah Wynn followed wide receiver N’Keal Harry and returned to practice on Wednesday, beginning the Georgia product’s 21-day window to be activated after dealing with turf toe. But Wynn’s presence would not be the only change in participation for New England.
Eight practiced in a limited capacity on Wednesday, including quarterback Tom Brady.
Here’s the initial injury report for Sunday’s 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium.
DID NOT PARTICIPATE
- Patriots: no players listed
- Ravens: S Earl Thomas (knee)
New England tight ends Matt LaCosse and Ryan Izzo worked their way off the list of non-participants on Wednesday. Both had been held out of the Patriots’ last two games due to a knee injury and a concussion, respectively.
Baltimore’s lone absence to begin the week would be Thomas, whom Patriots head coach Bill Belichick described Wednesday as “one of the most instinctive players in the league.” The six-time Pro Bowl and five-time All-Pro safety leads the Ravens in defensive snaps this fall.
- Patriots: QB Tom Brady (right shoulder), RB Rex Burkhead (foot), WR Julian Edelman (chest/shoulder), WR Gunner Olszewski (ankle/hamstring), Matt LaCosse (knee), TE Ryan Izzo (concussion), G Shaq Mason (ankle), S Patrick Chung (heel/chest)
- Ravens: WR Marquise Brown (ankle), LB Patrick Onwuasor (ankle), CB Maurice Canady (thigh), CB Jimmy Smith (knee)
Brady’s right shoulder is a new arrival on the injury report for New England. Also arriving is a shoulder injury for Edelman. The remainder of the Patriots’ limited were active for Sunday’s 27-13 win over the Cleveland Browns, aside from Mason. The starting right guard went from questionable to inactive prior to kickoff after seeing 99 percent of the offensive snaps through seven games.
Four Ravens were limited in practice Wednesday, including a rookie wideout with 21 receptions for 326 yards and three touchdowns on the season. That’d be Brown, who has been sidelined for Baltimore’s past two games.
