The New England Patriots continued to practice without the presence of two starters on Thursday.

Right tackle Trent Brown and outside linebacker Kyle Van Noy remained non-participants due to a calf strain and throat issue, respectively, as the AFC East meeting with the New York Jets nears. An additional two were added to New England’s list of limited.

Here’s the second injury report heading into Sunday’s 1 p.m. ET kickoff at MetLife Stadium.



  • OT Trent Brown (calf)
  • LB Kyle Van Noy (throat)


  • LB Jamien Sherwood (ankle)

Brown exited seven snaps into New England’s season opener and has since missed consecutive practices. Second-year pros Justin Herron and Yasir Durant both rotated in on the right side of the offensive line during his Week 1 absence. And on the defensive side of the ball for the Patriots, Van Noy is coming off a game that featured one sack and one deflected pass.



  • TE Jonnu Smith (hip)
  • OT Yodny Cajuste (hamstring)
  • LB Ronnie Perkins (shoulder)
  • K Quinn Nordin (abdomen)


  • WR Keelan Cole (knee)
  • WR Jamison Crowder (groin)

Smith and Nordin marked the new arrivals on New England’s injury report. The tight end would be limited on Thursday with a hip ailment while the undrafted kicker, who went to the inactives list in Week 1, would be with an abdomen ailment. They accompanied Patriots third-rounders from past and present in that partial capacity.



  • WR Nelson Agholor (ankle)
  • CB Jalen Mills (ankle)
  • S Kyle Dugger (wrist)


  • no players listed

New England’s trio of full participants from Wednesday remained unchained on Thursday. Agholor caught a touchdown in his Patriots debut while Mills deflected a pass in the end zone. Both March signings are managing ankle injuries. And Dugger, the top pick in last year’s Patriots draft class, is managing a wrist injury after playing 93 percent of the defensive downs last weekend.
