The New England Patriots’ second injury report of the week features the same names.

Two remained absent for Thursday’s practice on the Gillette Stadium backfields, while an additional four members of New England’s active roster remained limited, including a certain 42-year-old quarterback.

Here’s the prognosis as Sunday’s 1 p.m. ET encounter with the New York Jets draws near.


  • Patriots: FB James Develin (neck), LB Shilique Calhoun (not injury related)
  • Jets: QB Sam Darnold (illness), WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring/knee), DT Quinnen Williams (ankle), LB Jordan Jenkins (calf), LB C.J. Mosley (groin)

Develin and Calhoun have missed the initial two practices of the week for New England, though the outside linebacker’s non-participation is not due to injury. If Develin’s neck injury leaves him unavailable for Sunday, the Patriots’ fullback options include blocking tight end Ryan Izzo or potentially Jakob Johnson, who was not designated as part of the NFL’s International Player Pathway Program and is eligible to be elevated from the practice squad.

As for New York’s side, seven players had not partaken in Wednesday’s practice. That tally reduced to five on Thursday.


  • Patriots: QB Tom Brady (calf), TE Matt LaCosse (ankle), OT Caleb Benenoch (calf), OT Marcus Cannon (shoulder)
  • Jets: RB Trenton Cannon (ankle/hamstring), WR Josh Belamy (shoulder), OT Kelvin Beachum (ankle), G Brian Winters (shoulder), DT Steve McLendon (hip), CB Brian Poole (groin), S Rontez Miles (hip)

Brady was a new addition to the Patriots’ injury report on Wednesday with a calf issue. But the quarterback won’t be limited Sunday against a Jets team that will start another No. 199 overall pick in Luke Falk under center.

Both Cannon and Belamy were limited for New York after sitting out the previous session. Poole arrived on the Jets’ report Thursday.


  • Patriots: RB Brandon Bolden (hamstring)
  • Jets: WR Braxton Berrios (hamstring), G Alex Lewis (shoulder), DE John Franklin-Myers (foot), LB Harvey Langi (knee), LB Frankie Luvu (hand), S Marcus Maye (calf)

Bolden remains listed after being downgraded from questionable to out last weekend. The core special-teamer, who’d been dealing with a hamstring injury, graduated to full participation during New England’s opening practice of Week 3.

The Jets’ half-dozen full participants are unchanged, with ex-Patriots in Berrios and Langi among them.
