Patriots Week 5 injury report: Two key offensive lineman ruled out

Patriots

The New England Patriots are officially in a real bad spot with their offensive line.

The team has released its injury report for Sunday afternoon's Week 5 road game against the Houston Texans, and two important offensive lineman won't play.

Starting right guard Shaq Mason (abdomen) and starting right tackle Trent Brown (calf) have been ruled out. Two other starters -- left tackle Isaiah Wynn and left guard Michael Onwenu -- remain on the COVID-19 list but could still play versus the Texans if cleared.

Brown has not played since he left the first quarter of the Patriots' Week 1 game with a calf injury.

New England's secondary is banged up, too. Rookie cornerback Shaun Wade has been ruled out, while cornerback Jon Jones, safety Kyle Dugger and defensive back Jalen Mills all are listed as questionable.
