The New England Patriots will visit the New York Jets without Trent Brown.

The starting right tackle has been downgraded to out for Sunday’s game at MetLife Stadium, New England announced on the eve of the 1 p.m. ET kickoff.

Brown, 28, suffered a calf strain seven snaps into last week’s season opener against the Miami Dolphins. In the 6-foot-8, 380-pound bookend’s absence, 2020 sixth-round pick Justin Herron and August trade acquisition Yasir Durant stepped in on the right side of the line.

After what became a 17-16 loss at Gillette Stadium, Brown did not participate in consecutive practices before returning in a limited capacity on Friday. The Super Bowl LIII champion and 2019 Pro Bowler would be among four Patriots listed as questionable on the final injury report.

Previously, New England ruled out veteran linebacker Kyle Van Noy due to a throat issue as well as rookie kicker Quinn Nordin due to an abdomen issue that will send him to injured reserve.
