02/06/17LBJonathan FreenyShoulderQUESTIONABLEFreeny (shoulder) was placed on IR Saturday, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.

Freeny injured his shoulder last week and was ruled out for Week 6 prior to being shut down for the season. Shea McClellin and Barkevious Mingo will handle the outside linebacker duties in Freeny's absence.

02/06/17TERob GronkowskiBackQUESTIONABLEGronkowski (back) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Saturday, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

Gronkowski required surgery Friday to repair a herniated disc in his back, prematurely ending his 2016 campaign. He'll finish the season with career-lows across the board consisting of 25 receptions for 540 yards and three touchdowns. While fellow tight end Martellus Bennett likely stands to be the primary beneficiary of Gronkowski's absence, wideouts Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell could each be in store for an increased market share of the Patriots' passing attack as well.

02/06/17RBDion LewisHamstringQUESTIONABLELewis injured his hamstring during the fourth quarter of Sunday's Super Bowl game, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Lewis sustained what appeared to be a serious injury during the final play of regulation in Sunday's game, but it turns out that it was merely a hamstring tweak and doesn't figure to be anything significant. The running back carried six times for 27 yards in the game, but was outshone by backfield mate James White, who scored three touchdowns in the Patriots' comeback victory. Lewis will have some time to recover from his injury before organized team activities begin in the spring.

02/06/17DLGreg ScruggsKneeQUESTIONABLEScruggs (knee) was placed on IR Saturday, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.

Scruggs signed with the Patriots two weeks ago and appeared in their last two games prior to injuring his knee. It remains unclear what the specifics of his knee injury are but he'll now have more than enough time to recover. As the last tight end option on the team, his absence won't impact the offense greatly.

06/09/16TEMichael WilliamsKneeOUTWilliams 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.
