Patriots Injury Report: Two starters back in limited role Thursday

Patriots

Two starters returned to practice, albeit in a limited role, for the New England Patriots Thursday ahead of their Week 6 showdown with the Dallas Cowboys.

Right guard Shaq Mason (abdomen) and running back Damien Harris (chest), neither of whom practiced Wednesday, were among 10 players listed as having limited participation for the Patriots on Thursday. Mason missed last week's game against the Houston Texans, along with three other starting linemen, though quarterback Mac Jones remained remarkably upright behind the ragtag group in taking only one sack.

Tom Brady moves atop yet another leaderboard

For the Cowboys, star cornerback Trevon Diggs -- a college teammate of Jones who leads the NFL in interceptions through five games -- missed practice for the second day in a row with an ankle injury.
