Patriots work out three punters with Jake Bailey on injury report


The New England Patriots had a few free agent punters in for workouts at Gillette Stadium on Thursday as they prepare for Sunday's Week 10 game against the Cleveland Browns.

Here's a list of the punters who visited New England, per the league's transaction wire:

  • Nolan Cooney (Syracuse)
  • Sterling Hofrichter (Syracuse)
  • Corliss Waitman (South Alabama)

Why have three punters in for workouts?

Starting punter Jake Bailey was on the injury report Wednesday and Thursday as a limited participant in practice because of a right knee issue. 

Bailey has not missed a game since the Patriots selected him in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. 

Kickoff for Patriots vs. Browns is set for 1 p.m. ET Sunday in Foxboro.
