    04/27/16QBTom BradySuspensionSUSPENDThe NFLPA's George Atallah said the reinstatement of Brady's four-game suspension is unlikely to end any time soon, SI's Andrew Perloff reports.

    A federal appeals court ruled Monday to reinstate the four-game suspension that Brady received for his alleged involvement in the "deflategate" controversy in January 2015. Brady's now in line to miss the first four games of the 2016 season, though he and the NFLPA still figure to explore their options. 2014 second-round selection Jimmy Garoppolo is the Patriots' unquestioned No. 2 quarterback.

    04/27/16DBMalcolm ButlerKneePROBABLEButler missed the Pro Bowl due to a sprained knee, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports. "There was a play on third down [in the AFC championship game] when I made a tackle or something like that and bent my knee back," Butler said Friday in San Francisco. "It swelled up pretty bad. I didn't feel it during the game because of all the adrenaline pumping. When we got back, it swelled up pretty bad, and the team just decided it was a good thing to sit me out."

    Butler became instantly famous with his game-winning interception of Russell Wilson in last year's Super Bowl, and the loss of Darrelle Revis in free agency elevated him to the Patriots' No. 1 cornerback. The pseudo promotion worked wonders, as Butler notched 67 tackles (56 solo), 15 passes defended, and two interceptions while regularly drawing the opponent's top wide receiver over the course of his second campaign. While his recovery effort won't include surgery, rest and regular icing sessions have been his regimen to date.

    04/27/16WRAaron DobsonAnklePROBABLEESPN's Mike Reiss indicates that Dobson figures to be "in a fight for a roster spot" with the Patriots in advance of the 2016 season.

    The Patriots added wideouts Chris Hogan and Nate Washington via free agency, so Dobson faces some added competition for a role in the team's offense after enduring another injury-marred campaign in 2015, in which he was limited to eight games, a span in which he caught 13 passes for 141 yards. If Dobson can re-stablish his health this summer, however, keeping him around wouldn't be especially costly for the Patriots since he's in the final year of his rookie contract, which carries a salary cap hit of $1,090,845.

    04/27/16WRJulian EdelmanFootPROBABLEWhen asked how the foot that bothered him this past season is feeling, Edelman noted Thursday that "it's feeling better every day. That's a good thing," ESPN.com reports.

    At the same time, Edelman neither confirmed or denied a recent report that he hasn't needed additional surgery on his foot and is fully on track to participate in the Patriots' upcoming offseason program. "We're just taking it day to day," Edelman added. In any case, while the wideout's health will be worth monitoring once the team hits the field this spring, there's been nothing to suggest that Edelman's playing status for the upcoming season is in any peril. Perhaps more relevant to his 2016 fantasy prospects will be what moves the Patriots make to re-tool their receiving corps this offseason.

    04/27/16RBDion LewisKneeQUESTIONABLEESPN's Mike Reiss suggests that "there's no reason to think" that Lewis -- who is bouncing back from a torn right ACL that he suffered on Nov. 8 -- "won't be available for when the games count."

    The report relays that Lewis' recovery from his Nov. 18 knee surgery (performed by Dr. James Andrews) has been encouraging, with a routine January check-in revealing in terms of the running back's progress, that "things were exactly where they should be, if not better." While the Patriots do figure to take it slowly with Lewis in the coming months, it appears as though he's on track to reprise his role in the team's offense in 2016, in the absence of any injury setbacks. Of course, it's a little early to get a good read on the running back's fantasy prospects for the coming season, given that the Patriots figure to make some personal changes in their backfield this offseason, with veteran "big backs" LeGarrette Blount and Steven Jackson slated to become free agents.

    04/27/16LBTony StewardBackPROBABLESteward has been placed on injured reserve due to a back injury suffered in Sunday's win over Houston, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    Starter Nigel Bradham may not be able to make it back from his ankle injury this week. If that doesn't happen, the Bills would be down their top two guys at the inside linebacker spot next to Preston Brown.

    New York Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    04/27/16TEJace AmaroShoulderPROBABLEThe Jets announced Tuesday they have placed tight end Jace Amaro on the season-ending injured reserve list due to a torm labrum in his shoulder, per the Daily News.
    04/27/16KNick FolkQuadricepsPROBABLEThe Jets placed Folk (quad) on injured reserve Tuesday.

    It appeared Folk would be able to return to action later this year despite straining his quad Sunday against the Jaguars, but the Jets ultimiately decided to place him on injured reserve, which opens up a roster spot but brings Folk's season to a close. Randy Bullock will take over as the Jets' kicker moving forward.

    04/27/16DBDarrelle RevisWristPROBABLERevis had the pins removed from his surgically repaired wrist last week, but he will still be held out of offseason practices, ESPN.com reports.

    Revis has surgery in mid-March, and while he isn't expected to participate in offseason activities, he should be okay for training camp. Marcus Williams and Dexter McDougle will get some first-team reps at practice while Revis is out.

    04/27/16WRDevin SmithKneeQUESTIONABLESmith tore his ACL Sunday against the Titans.

    The rookie wideout's season is over and Smith -- who caught nine passes for 115 yards and a TD in 10 games this season -- is thus a candidate to be placed on IR by the Jets.

    (Updated 12/14/2015)
    04/27/16RBZac StacyAnklePROBABLEStacy was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

    This move was considered a formality as Stacy was expected to miss the rest of the season after fracturing his ankle during last Thursday's game against the Bills. Bilal Powell and Stevan Ridley will likely see a few extra opportunities out of the backfield with Stacy now out, but unless starting running back Chris Ivory goes down with an injury, neither should be expected to be a reliable fantasy contributor.

    (Updated 11/21/2015)
    04/27/16TEZach SudfeldKneeQUESTIONABLESudfeld (knee) re-signed with the Jets on Thursday, NJ.com reports.

    The Jets cut Jeff Cumberland recently, which theoretically moves Sudfeld up the depth chart, but with Jace Amaro expected to have a big impact this season, Sudfeld's fantasy upside remains fairly limited.

    (Updated 03/11/2016)
    04/27/16DLMuhammad WilkersonLegPROBABLEWilkerson (leg) is not expected to attend the Jets' offseason program, NFL.com reports.

    Wilkerson, who is still rehabbing from the broken fibula he suffered in Week 17, has yet to sign his $15.7 million franchise tag, as he continues to seek a long-term deal with the Jets. While his stance on a new contract could lead the Jets to entertain trade interest in him during the draft, Wilkerson's career-best 64 tackles and 12 sacks make him one of the league's best defensive lineman, and someone New York could obviously use after losing nose tackle Damon Harrison this offseason.
