FOXBORO, Mass. — There’s a 50-50 chance the New England Patriots will have Dominique Easley on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Easley officially was listed in the Patriots’ injury report Friday as questionable to play. The defensive tackle injured his hip eight plays into the Patriots’ Week 1 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
It could make sense for the Patriots to hold out Easley through the bye week to make sure he’s 100 percent for the rest of the season. The 2014 first-round draft pick played in just 11 games last season as he dealt with lingering knee injuries.
Check out the Patriots’ full injury report:
OL Ryan Wendell (illness)
DL Dominique Easley (hip)
DL Trey Flowers (knee)
LB Dont’a Hightower (shoulder)
CB Logan Ryan (shoulder)
