The New England Patriots will go without rookie running back Damien Harris and starting safety Patrick Chung.
Both have been downgraded to out ahead of Sunday’s 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field.
Harris appeared on New England’s injury report Friday with a hamstring issue that officially left him questionable. On a depth chart featuring Sony Michel, James White, Rex Burkhead and Brandon Bolden, the third-round draft pick out of Alabama has handled four carries for 12 yards over two games this season.
Chung, who is dealing with heel and chest injuries, missed two consecutive practices before returning as a limited participant on Wednesday. Sunday will mark the 11-year veteran’s third inactive since the start of October. And it will come opposite a set of Eagles tight ends in Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert that have combined for 748 receiving yards and five touchdowns thus far.
Five Patriots remain questionable for New England’s visit to Philadelphia.
That list includes wideout and punt returner Gunner Olszewski, tight end Matt LaCosse, defensive tackle Danny Shelton, defensive end John Simon and core special-teamer Nate Ebner. All of whom were limited to close the week.
