The Patriots, who have been dealt a tough hand this season from an injury perspective, are somehow more banged up than ever. Jonathan Jones is just the start to an endless list of names on New England’s injury report.
Here is New England’s injury report for this week, as they host the one-win New York Jets:
CB Jonathan Jones, Shoulder (DNP)
CB Shaun Wade, Concussion (DNP)
DL Christian Barmore, Shoulder (LP)
LB Ja’Whaun Bentley, Ribs (LP)
RB Brandon Bolden, Thigh (LP)
S Kyle Dugger, Knee (LP)
K Nick Folk, Left Knee (LP)
DL Davon Godchaux, Finger (DNP)
LB Dont’a Hightower, Elbow/Ankle (DNP)
LB Brandon King, Thigh (LP)
G Shaq Mason, Abdomen (LP)
DB Jalen Mills, Hamstring (LP)
DB Adrian Phillips, Back (LP)
LB Josh Uche, Shoulder (LP)
LB Kyle Van Noy, Groin (LP)
DL Deatrich Wise Jr., Knee (LP)
*LP means limited in practice Friday; DNP means did not practice Friday
Some roster moves have already been made, as OL James Ferentz and DL Daniel Ekuale have been elevated from the practice squad.
Ekuale, 27, joined New England’s practice squad five days into September and will be making his Pats debut.
Ferentz, 32, was elevated against the Texans and Cowboys and started at left guard for both of those affairs. He’s been with the Pats for the last three seasons up and down between the practice squad and 53-man roster, and his elevation likely means Shaq Mason is out, as he’s been dealing with an ab injury for weeks now.
No other roster moves have been made, despite their being the possibility of 16 53-man roster players missing. Luckily, it comes against the Jets.
