Patriots Injury Report: Updated Status On Jakobi Meyers, Kyle Dugger

Meyers and Dugger took the field Wednesday


September 28

FOXBORO, Mass. — With the New England Patriots finding themselves down a starting quarterback following the latest on Mac Jones, Wednesday saw a duo of Week 3 absentees participate during team practice at Gillette Stadium.

Wide receiver Jakobi Meyers and starting safety Kyle Dugger were all limited after missing New England’s previous contest — a 37-26 home loss against the Baltimore Ravens.

Both Meyers and Dugger dealt with knee injuries, resulting in their absences after each taking the field for the previous two games to open up their latest campaigns. However, with the latest injury report, both are expected to take the field for New England’s Week 4 matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

Meyers, last season’s receiving yards leader (866) for the Patriots, served as the offense’s leader in receptions and yards throughout the first two weeks of the regular season. Currently, the 25-year-old — even having missed Week 3 — remains the team leader in receptions (13) and sits third in total receiving yards (150) while trailing just 30 for sole possession of the lead in that category.

Dugger, amid his third NFL and Patriots campaign, had recorded six tackles and one assist in his first two showings this season. The 26-year-old left during New England’s 17-14 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, making an early exit in the second quarter — also due to a knee injury.

Here is the Patriots’ full injury report:

QB Mac Jones – Ankle
DL Lawrence Guy – Shoulder

S Joshuah Bledsoe – Groin
OL Yodny Cajuste – Thumb
S Kyle Dugger – Knee
DL Davon Godchaux – Back
LB Raekwon McMillan – Thumb
WR Jakobi Meyers, Knee
CB Jalen Mills, Hamstring
S Adrian Phillips – Ribs

The Packers listed seven players under limited participation while two others did not participate in Week 4 preparation at all.

Kickoff between the Patriots and Packers on Sunday is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. ET, from Lambeau Field.
