The New England Patriots wide receiver now is dealing with a knee injury in addition to the shoulder ailment that’s limited him in recent weeks, according to the Patriots’ latest injury report.

The Patriots also listed two other receivers on the injury report: Mohamed Sanu (ankle) and N’Keal Harry (hip). Sanu was among six players limited in practice Wednesday. Harry was full-go, as was quarterback Tom Brady (right elbow).
Center Ted Karras and defensive lineman Byron Cowart returned to practice in a limited capacity after missing Sunday’s game with knee and head injuries, respectively.
Defensive tackle Danny Shelton was a new addition to the injury report. He was limited with a shoulder injury.
