    06/09/16TEMichael WilliamsKnee 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.

    05/16/16WRDanny AmendolaKnee Though Amendola underwent a procedure on his left knee this offseason and also had bone spurs removed from his ankle, ESPN's Mike Reiss relays that he has been informed that the wideout's ailments have been portrayed as "minor" and "not a long-term" concern.

    The report also encouragingly notes that Amendola's rehab "has been on a positive track and he's already moving well." While the wideout's on-field activities figure to be limited as training camp approaches, the ESPN report offers an optimistic angle which suggests that Amendola in on pace to be ready for the start of the coming season. In the meantime, with top wideout Julian Edelman bouncing back from foot woes, the likes of Chris Hogan, Nate Washington, Aaron Dobson, Malcolm Mitchell and Devin Lucien should see added reps during the Patriots' upcoming OTAs and minicamps.

    05/11/16WRJulian EdelmanFoot The Patriots are highly optimistic Edelman (foot) will be ready for training camp, CSN New England reports.

    Edelman broke his left foot Nov. 15 and missed the rest of the regular season, but he returned for New England's two playoff games, catching 17 passes for 153 yards on a whopping 29 targets. He then had a minor clean-up procedure on his foot during the offseason, and while he was recently spotted wearing a protective boot, the Patriots reportedly aren't too concerned. Assuming he recovers as expected, Edelman could spend a good portion of camp working with Jimmy Garoppolo, who's in line to replace Tom Brady (suspension) for the first four games of the season. Though facing long odds, Brady may file further appeals in an effort to have his suspension overturned or delayed.

    04/27/16QBTom BradySuspensionSUSPENDCommissioner Roger Goodell relayed to reporters on Monday that there will be no settlement with Brady on the appeal of his four-game suspension stemming from his role in "Deflategate", ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

    Brady and his legal team are still awaiting a decision by the 2nd U.S. District Court of Appeals regarding the possibility of a second hearing, but Goodell continues to stand by his disciplinary actions. As expected the courts will ultimately have the final say in whether or not Brady ends up serving the entire four-game suspension, which could be decided at the Supreme Court level.

    04/08/16RBDion LewisKnee Lewis (knee) participated in Monday's voluntary OTAs, ESPN.com reports.

    While Lewis' level of participation was not specified, it was notably his first appearance at practice since undergoing surgery in November to repair a torn ACL. Assuming no setbacks, it would appear as though Lewis has a good shot to be healthy in advance of Week 1, at which time he'd presumably work in tandem with power back LeGarrette Blount. Meanwhile, Brandon Bolden, Donald Brown, James White, Tyler Gaffney and D.J. Foster are in line to jostle for depth slotting in the team's backfield.

    02/06/16DBMalcolm ButlerKnee Butler 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.

    New York Injuries

    04/25/16WRDevin SmithKnee Smith (knee) is expected to begin training camp on the PUP list, making him "doubtful" to play in Week 1 against the Bengals, Rich Cimini of ESPN New York reports.

    The recovery timetable for an ACL tear has dwindled in recent years, but such injuries need to be explored on a case-by-case basis. Considering Smith's rookie campaign came to a close in Week 14, it's no surprise that the final stages of his rehabilitation will extend into training camp, at least, and potentially into the regular season. Once healthy, though, he'll have a prime opportunity to succeed in a receiving corps that's unproven behind Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.

    04/08/16DLMuhammad WilkersonLeg Wilkerson (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.

    (Updated 04/18/2016)
    03/18/16DBDarrelle RevisWrist Revis practiced Wednesday for the first time since undergoing surgery on his wrist in March, NJ.com reports.

    Revis was limited in his work, but it's certainly a major step in the right direction. Despite the return, it remains unclear if Revis will be able to full participate in training camp next month.
