Patriots will be without Josh Gordon, two TEs against Jets

Patriots will be without Josh Gordon, two TEs against Jets

FOXBORO – The Patriots have nine players on this week’s final injury report. Eight of them are offensive players and three of those players are out entirely.

Josh Gordon, who twisted his ankle and knee in ugly fashion during the Patriots win over the Giants, is one of them. He hasn’t practiced all week and the wideout could be down a few more given how ugly the injury looked. Also down on Monday night will be tight ends Matt LaCosse and Ryan Izzo.

Izzo popped up on the injury report on Thursday with a concussion. The second-year tight end labored in the running game against the Jets. LaCosse was also injured against the Giants. Rex Burkhead, the Patriots most versatile back, leads the contingent of players questionable for the game against the Jets. Three other wideouts – Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett and Gunner Olszewski – are all hurt as well.

Safety Patrick Chung is still dealing with a chest and heel injury. The Patriots' only healthy wideout going into this game is Jakobi Meyers.

Patriots work out former Eagles defensive back Tuesday

Patriots work out former Eagles defensive back Tuesday

The New England Patriots worked out a defensive back on Tuesday, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Tre Sullivan, a former Philadelphia Eagles safety, played 12 games in 2018. The 24-year-old made 17 tackles, 12 solo, in his stint with Philadelphia. Sullivan played in college at Shepherd University in West Virginia, and was released by the Eagles over the summer. 

The workout comes after the Patriots have a need to fill three open practice squad spots following the departures of offensive tackle Dan Skipper, defensive lineman Ufomba Kamalu and placing Obi Melifonwu on injured reserve.

New England also announced that they've placed Gunner Olszewski on injured reserve and have activated Isaiah Wynn.
