Both missed Week 10 against the Cleveland Browns while in the NFL’s concussion protocol and had been projected as non-participants alongside linebacker Josh Uche to begin Week 11. Amid the quick turnaround, all three have since graduated to limited.
Here’s the updated injury report for Thursday’s 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
DID NOT PARTICIPATE
- DE Deatrich Wise Jr. (illness)
- TE Hayden Hurst (ankle)
- LB Daren Bates (groin)
- CB Kendall Sheffield (hamstring)
New England’s lone absence from the in-stadium walkthrough would be Wise. The defensive lineman, coming off a 1.5-sack performance versus Cleveland, is dealing with an illness. Atlanta’s three sidelined on Monday remained unchanged on Tuesday.
- RB Damien Harris (concussion)
- RB Brandon Bolden (hip)
- WR N’Keal Harry (knee)
- WR Gunner Olszewski (concussion)
- TE Jonnu Smith (shoulder)
- OT Trent Brown (calf)
- G Shaq Mason (abdomen)
- LB Dont’a Hightower (ankle)
- LB Ja’Whaun Bentley (ribs)
- LB Kyle Van Noy (groin)
- LB Josh Uche (ankle)
- CB Jalen Mills (forearm)
- S Kyle Dugger (ankle)
- K Nick Folk (left knee)
- P Jake Bailey (right knee)
- RB Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle)
- S Jaylinn Hawkins (ankle)
Harris, Olszewski and Uche joined a list of 15 limited for the Patriots on Tuesday. And for the Falcons, Patterson continued under the limited designation after suffering a sprained ankle last Sunday. The former New England rusher, receiver and returner stands with 776 yards and seven touchdowns from scrimmage this fall through 77 carries and 39 catches.
- no players listed
- TE Lee Smith (back)
- DE Jonathan Bullard (concussion)
Atlanta’s Smith went from limited to full participation on Tuesday. The 2011 New England fifth-round pick out of Marshall has appeared in 141 career games, and was inactive for Week 10 due to a back issue.
