Patriots Minicamp: Chase Winovich Out, Should Return For Training Camp

Chase Winovich missed his third straight practice


June 16, 2021

The usual suspects were missing from the final day of New England Patriots minicamp and the offseason workout program Wednesday.

Linebackers Chase Winovich, Ra’Shod Berry and Terez Hall, defensive tackle Byron Cowart and cornerback Stephon Gilmore weren’t spotted at practice for the third straight day. Tight end Jonnu Smith, who injured his hamstring Monday, was present but inactive during the session.

The cause for Winovich’s absence is nothing major, a source told The current plan is for Winovich to return for training camp.

Gilmore injured his quad late in the 2020 season but also deserves a pay raise after a contract adjustment last year borrowed money from his current salary.

The Patriots will practice Wednesday then veteran players will break for the summer until training camp in late July. Head coach Bill Belichick said rookie players will stick around for a while longer into June.

While other NFL teams lessened the practice load during these spring sessions (or canceled them altogether), the Patriots worked up until their final allotted practice. In previous years, New England would take a team bonding trip on the final day of the offseason workout program. They practiced as usual Wednesday.
