Patriots downgrade Gilmore, Burkhead to out for Sunday vs. Jets

Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore (concussion) and running back Rex Burkhead (ribs) have been ruled out for the game Sunday against the Jets in East Rutherford, N.J.

Gilmore had been listed with an ankle injury earlier in the week but wasn't on the injury report Friday. He had been a limited participant in practice. It's unclear when the concussion occurred. 

It leaves the Pats thin at corner with cornerback Eric Rowe already out with a groin injury.

Burkhead had been listed as questionable but will miss the game with a rib injury. Rookie linebacker Harvey Langi, who was injured along with his wife in a car accident Friday night in Foxboro, was also downgraded to out with a back injury.

Tom Brady applauds Nick Foles' restructured contract

Though Tom Brady has skipped the Patriots' offseason workout program, he hasn't missed a beat on Instagram. 

On Friday, it was the news of Nick Foles restructuring his contract with the Eagles that got Brady's attention in the form of a like and a comment applauding the move. Foles, who beat the Patriots in Super Bowl LII, got a $2 million signing bonus and will now have a mutual option for the 2019 season.
