Patriots Injury Report: Two Rookies Added; David Andrews Remains Sidelined

Plus: Several key DNPs for the Raiders

The New England Patriots added two rookies to their injury report Thursday ahead of Sunday’s matchup with the Las Vegas Raiders.

Second-round draft picks Kyle Dugger and Josh Uche were limited in practice with ankle and foot injuries, respectively.

This was Dugger’s first appearance on the Patriots’ injury report, though he did miss time during training camp. The versatile safety impressed Sunday night in the Patriots’ loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Uche had been a full participant Wednesday after being limited last week with an ankle injury. The linebacker has yet to make his NFL debut.

Center David Andrews (hand) and running back James White (not injury related) both did not practice Thursday, though Andrews was present with a large wrap on his right hand/thumb.

White sat out the Seahawks game following the death of his father and has not appeared at either of the Patriots’ two practices this week. His and Andrews’ statuses for Sunday’s game are unclear

Wide receivers Julian Edelman (knee) and N’Keal Harry (ankle), defensive tackle Adam Butler (shoulder) and linebacker Brandon Copeland (knee) all were limited for the second straight day.
