Patriots Injury Report: Cornerback Misses Practice With Concussion

Four offensive linemen remained sidelined


Oct 7, 2021

A concussion kept New England Patriots cornerback Shaun Wade out of practice Thursday.

Wade was the lone new addition to New England’s latest injury report. The rookie has yet to play a snap for the Patriots this season, sitting out the first four games as a healthy scratch after being acquired from the Baltimore Ravens in late August. Wade was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice.

Right tackle Trent Brown (calf) and right guard Shaq Mason (abdomen) both did not practice for the second consecutive day. Left tackle Isaiah Wynn and left guard Mike Onwenu also were out Thursday, as both remain on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The Patriots have been without four-fifths of their starting offensive line in both practices this week, with only center David Andrews participating.

Linebacker Kyle Van Noy (groin) was upgraded to limited after sitting out Wednesday’s practice.

The same eight players who were limited in practice Wednesday were again on Thursday. That group includes defensive starters Ja’Whaun Bentley (shoulder), Kyle Dugger (hamstring), Jalen Mills (hamstring) and Jonathan Jones (ankle).

J.C. Jackson, Joejuan Williams and Justin Bethel are the only fully healthy cornerbacks on New England’s 53-man roster. The Patriots’ cornerback depth has been scrutinized this week following the trade of Stephon Gilmore to the Carolina Panthers.

The Patriots will practice again Friday before flying to Houston for a matchup with the Texans.
