The New England Patriots did not lose any other players to the reserve/opt-out list by Thursday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline.

Overall, eight Patriots players chose to opt-out for the 2020 NFL season over concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. These eight players will not suit up for the Patriots this season:

RB Brandon Bolden
FB Danny Vitale
WR Marqise Lee
TE Matt LaCosse
