The New England Patriots will be without two key skill players Sunday vs. the Bills, and possibly more. Tailback Rhamondre Stevenson was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list after missing practice all week with what was said to be an illness. Wideout Nelson Agholor remains in concussion protocol after missing practice all week as well. Safety Joshuah Bledsoe (calf) is also listed as out.
The Pats could also be without Damien Harris (hamstring), Brandon Bolden (knee), N’Keal Harry (hip), and Kendrick Bourne who is one of seven on the COVID list. Bourne hasn’t practiced all week after being placed on the list Monday.
Luckily, J.J. Taylor was spotted at practice today — which was in Gillette Stadium — as he was taken off of the Reserve/COVID-19 list. He could be in the candidacy for some carries if both Stevenson and either Harris or Bolden are out.
Receivers Kristian Wilkerson and seventh-round pick Tre Nixon could likely be elevated off the practice squad.
David Andrews (shoulder), Christian Barmore (knee), Ja’Whuan Bentley (ribs/ankle), Nick Folk (left knee), and Adrian Phillips (knee) round out the eight players questionable. Each have been limited in practice all week.
Bills’ Cole Beasley still has not been removed off of the Reserve/COVID-19 list. However, Buffalo has just one questionable player and zero listed as out.
