Gilmore (quadriceps) will be placed on the reserve/PUP list, ruling him out for the first six games of the regular season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. With their top cornerback sidelined for at least six games, the Patriots recently sent draft picks to Baltimore for fifth-round rookie Shaun Wade. The team still has two quality corners in J.C. Jackson and Jonathan Jones, but it isn't clear if Wade, Jalen Mills or Joejuan Williams can step up as a capable No. 3. Either way, Gilmore's absence is a huge loss for a New England defense that was hoping to recapture its 2019 form after an inconsistent 2020.
Gilmore (quadriceps) is being considered "day-to-day," Chris Mason of MassLive.com reports. In providing an update on Gilmore, coach Bill Belichick asserted, "When he's ready to be out there, then he'll be out there." The Patriots sorely miss the 2019 Defensive Player of the Year, and team's lack of depth at cornerback has shown during training camp. The 30-year-old is still recovering from a torn quadriceps that ended his 2020 season early. In 11 games, the veteran recorded 37 total tackles, one forced fumble and one interception. When healthy, Gilmore is an elite defensive back in the league, and the 6-foot-1, 202-pounder will aim to get back on the field ahead of New England's Week 1 game against Miami.
Gilmore (quadriceps) is present for the start of New England's training camp but will begin on the PUP list, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Gilmore didn't attend June minicamp amid ongoing contract negotiations, but the ex-Defensive Player of the Year is in the building to kick off training camp. After ending last season on IR due to a torn quadriceps, Gilmore isn't back to full health quite yet, but there's not yet any significant reason to worry about his status for Week 1.
Gilmore (quadriceps) and the Patriots plan to sit down before training camp to work out a deal, Henry Mckenna of USA Today reports. Gilmore declined to attend mandatory minicamp in June under the final year of his current $7 million contract. It is unlikely that the ex-Defensive Player of the Year will be traded, as the Patriots appear to have too high of a price tag. The 31-year-old missed the end of last season after being placed on IR due to a quadriceps injury, which may be the reason an extension has yet to be agreed upon. If healthy, there is no question that Gilmore is still a premier corner in the NFL.
Gilmore (quadriceps) will hold out of mandatory minicamp, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports. Gilmore is reportedly on the hunt for a new deal and is also on the mend from a partially-torn quad suffered last season. Per Rapoport, Gilmore will earn a $7 million base salary in 2021 as part of his current contract.
