NFL rumors: Here's how Patriots plan to create roster spot for Isaiah Wynn

NFL rumors: Here's how Patriots plan to create roster spot for Isaiah Wynn

The New England Patriots will need to create a spot on their 53-man roster for Isaiah Wynn to return, and with the second-year left tackle eligible to play Sunday if activated, the team reportedly plans to put a rookie wide receiver on injured reserve.

ESPN's Mike Reiss reported Tuesday that Gunner Olszewski likely is headed to injured reserve. This move would open a roster spot for Wynn.

Olszewski hasn't played too many snaps at wide receiver, instead mostly featuring on special teams as a punt returner. He has been active for eight of New England's 10 games, tallying 20 punt returns over that span.

Wynn's potential return is a big deal for the Patriots. He was playing quite well before suffering a foot injury in the Patriots' Week 2 road win over the Miami Dolphins. He went on injured reserve as a result and didn't return to practice until Oct. 30. Marshall Newhouse has started in place of Wynn at left tackle, and his performance has not been great.

The Patriots host the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday for a Week 12 matchup at Gillette Stadium. The defending Super Bowl champs have a 1-game lead over the Baltimore Ravens for the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoff race.

Julian Edelman's latest hype video cites Patriots bulletin board material

Julian Edelman's latest hype video cites Patriots bulletin board material

The New England Patriots don't like being counted out. And Julian Edelman is letting everyone know it ahead of their Sunday afternoon matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Edelman took to Twitter on Sunday to release a hype video ahead of the Chiefs game. This week, the clip was mostly an amalgamation of various clips of analysts that are counting the Patriots out after their loss to the Texans.

Here's a look at the video.

Included among the thoughts about the Patriots:

"Tom Brady is no longer elite." 

"The offense just has no weapons whatsoever."

"It's the end of the dynasty."

Safe to say, Edelman didn't take kindly to these. And he will use them as bulletin board material along with the rest of the Patriots.

And we all know what the Patriots do with bulletin board material.

The Patriots and Chiefs will kick off at 4:25 p.m. ET. Coverage for the game starts at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Boston with Patriots Pregame Live.

Patriots vs. Chiefs live stream: Watch NFL Week 14 game online

Sunday's Week 14 showdown between the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs at Gillette Stadium has been circled on NFL fans' calendars for many months.

When the schedule came out, this game was among the most anticipated of the 2019 season, and it's easy to understand why. These teams met twice last year, and each game ranked among the very best of the 2018 campaign. The Patriots beat the Chiefs 43-40 at home in Week 6, then beat KC again at Arrowhead Stadium with a thrilling 37-31 overtime victory in the AFC Championship Game.

This matchup will have huge implications for the AFC playoff race, too. A Patriots win helps them keep pace with the Baltimore Ravens for the No. 1 seed in the conference.The Patriots and Ravens have identical 10-2 records, but Baltimore owns the head-to-head tiebreaker. The Chiefs lead the AFC West, and a win would go a long way in helping them contend for a top two seed. A loss would likely end Kansas City's hope of earning a first-round playoff bye.

Will the Patriots improve to 3-0 against Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, or will the reigning MVP earn a huge victory and move Kansas City closer to a top-two seed?
