The Patriots open the season today at 4:25 p.m. EST, in front of the Gillette Stadium crowd that will host the Dolphins.
The two teams opened their seasons against each other last season, as in Cam Newton’s Patriots debut New England took a convincing 21-11 win over the Dolphins. But in Week 15, at Miami, the Dolphins eliminated the Pats from playoff contention with a 22-12 win to cap off a disappointing season.
The former Alabama teammates Mac Jones and Tua Tagovailoa face off, while former Patriots Eric Rowe, Elandon Roberts, and Jason McCourty will take on ex-Dolphin LB Kyle Van Noy.
Here is your Patriots Injury Report:
RB/WR Malcom Perry: Out (Foot)
WR Nelson Agholor: Questionable (Ankle)
OT Yodny Cajuste: Questionable (Hamstring)
LB Ronnie Perkins: Questionable (Shoulder)
S Jalen Mills: Questionable (Ankle)
Veteran QB Brian Hoyer and veteran K Nick Folk were both called up from the practice squad to serve as backups.
No other roster moves have been made other than Perry to the IR, so it likely means the four questionable players are going to play.
