An already decimated Patriots offensive line acquired much more dangerous information on Wednesday night.

In New England’s newest harm report, each left sort out Trent Brown and guard Sidy Sow have been dominated out of Wednesday’s apply in Foxborough after being positioned in concussion protocol.

To make issues worse, heart David Andrews was listed as “restricted” on Wednesday as a result of a hamstring situation, whereas Week 1 absentees in G Mike Onwenu (ankle) and G Cole Unusual (G) have been restricted as nicely.

Right here’s the complete harm report for the Patriots and Dolphins coming into Week 2:



T Trent Brown — concussion

G Sidy Sow — concussion


C David Andrews — hamstring

WR Kayshon Boutte — hamstring

OL Cole Unusual — knee

WR DeVante Parker — knee

OL Mike Onwenu — ankle



RB Raheem Mostert – Knee


T Terron Armstead — again, ankle, knee

DB Elijah Campbell — knee

TE Julian Hill — ankle

WR Jaylen Waddle — indirect

Boutte is a brand new addition to the Patriots’ harm report, whereas Parker stays in the identical spot as final week when he was dominated out of New England’s season-opening recreation in opposition to the Eagles.

However New England is presently looking at a nightmare situation up entrance in the case of placing collectively a succesful five-man unit to guard Mac Jones.

The Patriots have been dealt a tricky hand final week after each Unusual and Onwenu have been dominated out in opposition to the Eagles, forcing Sow and fellow rookie Atonio Mafi to fit into beginning roles.

But when Brown and Sow aren’t obtainable, New England might need to fit veteran Calvin Anderson over to left sort out in opposition to the Dolphins this Sunday and push a not too long ago acquired sort out like Vederian Lowe or Tyrone Wheatley Jr. into one other beginning spot on the suitable facet.

Rookie Jake Andrews might be pressed into service at heart if David Andrews isn’t cleared to play, whereas the opposite vacant guard spot could be crammed by a carousel of depth items, together with the odd man out of the Wheatley/Lowe rotation at sort out.

Going into coaching camp, the Patriots’ projected high unit on the O-line featured:

LT Trent Brown
LG Cole Unusual
C David Andrews
RG Mike Onwenu
RT Riley Reiff

Now, all 5 key cogs are banged up, with Reiff presently listed on IR and the remaining 4 etched on the harm report.

Getting at the least some mixture of Andrews, Unusual, and Onwenu again could be a welcome sight, particularly in the case of stabilizing a run recreation that clearly missed New England’s beginning guards in opposition to the Eagles (3.5 yards per carry).

However with Brown now hampered by a concussion, Jones might want to maintain his head on a swivel in opposition to no matter cross rush Miami defensive coordinator Vic Fangio dials up on Sunday night time at Gillette Stadium.
