Hamilton (shoulder) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's contest against the Steelers.
Hamilton was a limited participant in practice all week with a shoulder injury suffered in Week 6, and apparently isn't recovering well enough to suit up against the Steelers. With Hamilton and defensive tackle Vince Valentine out Sunday, the Patriots will be short-handed along their defensive line.
Williams has missed several days of practice with an undisclosed injury.
Clearly behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett on the Patriots' tight end depth chart, Williams is competing for depth slotting at the position along with Clay Harbor, A.J. Derby, Steven Scheu and Bear Pascoe.
Williams tore his left ACL during Wednesday's practice and he'll likely be placed on Injured Reserve, Jim McBride of the Boston Globe reports.
As expected, Williams' injury was a serious one as he was seen on crutches Thursday awaiting the unfortunate results. This ensures Clay Harbor's spot as the No. 3 option at tight end behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett heading into the 2016 season, as Williams enters a long road to recovery.
Smith (ankle) was not on the practice field for the team's final session before their bye week, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Smith continues to nurse an ankle injury that has held him out of back-to-back games, but the team remains optimistic the veteran can return after the bye week. Fantasy owners shouldn't look too far in to Smith's absence Wednesday, as 11 players sat out Wednesday's session, several of which were presumed healthy.
Suggs (biceps) was spotted wearing a brace on his left arm Tuesday, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Suggs is still nursing a bicep tear he suffered in Week 6 against the Giants, but now heads into the Ravens' bye week, giving him extra time to heal before Nov. 6's tilt with the Steelers. Look for practice updates to come later this week, as Za'Darius Smith is expected to see an expanded role in the veteran's absence.
Boyle has been suspended for the first 10 games of the 2016 campaign due to a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Boyle was utilized sparsely as a rookie in 2015, hauling in 18 balls for 153 yards over the course of 11 games. However, he received his first suspension related to PEDs on Dec. 7 and subsequently missed the final four contests of the season. With Boyle out of the picture for most of next season, the Ravens rely upon Crockett Gillmore (back) and Maxx Williams to man tight end.
