New England Patriots wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell’s status for Week 1 is up in the air as of Wednesday afternoon.
Mitchell, who is slotted to be the Patriots’ No. 3 or No. 4 receiver this season, is questionable to play Thursday night in the NFL Kickoff Game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Brandin Cooks and Chris Hogan will be the Patriots’ No. 1 and 2 receivers this season. If Mitchell can’t play, then Danny Amendola and newcomer Phillip Dorsett could see more playing time.
Here’s the rest of the Patriots’ Week 1 injury report.
