The New England Patriots continued preparations for the Miami Dolphins on Thursday without Kyle Dugger.

The starting safety has now missed consecutive practices due to a hand issue.

Offensive tackle Yodny Cajuste and cornerback Myles Bryant also remained sidelined for New England’s active roster. Both reside on the Covid-19 reserve list alongside a member of the practice squad in rookie lineman Will Sherman.

Here’s the second injury report ahead of Sunday’s 4:25 p.m. ET finale at Hard Rock Stadium.
