  • Patriots' Brandon Copeland: Shifts to injured reserve

    Copeland (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. The 29-year-old was declared out for the season after suffering the torn pectoral during Sunday's loss to the 49ers, so the move to injured reserve was only a matter of time.

  • Patriots' Brandon Copeland: Will be shut down for season

    Copeland suffered a torn pectoral muscle in Sunday's loss to the 49ers and will be shut down for the season, Zach Cox of NESN.com reports. Copeland is on a one-year deal with the team, so this may have been the 29-year-old's last game with New England. Although he started four games for the Patriots, Copeland logged just 16 percent of the defensive workload this season. Rookie Anfernee Jennings and Cassh Maluia could absorb the reps Copeland leaves behind. Copeland is expected to land on injured reserve at some point this week.

  • Patriots' Brandon Copeland: Labeled as questionable

    The Patriots have listed Copeland (knee) as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Seahawks. Copeland's availability at practice was limited all week, so his questionable designation is not all that surprising. If he is ultimately unable to give it a go, look for some combination of Anfernee Jennings and Cassh Maluia to replace his snaps at inside linebacker.

  • Patriots' Brandon Copeland: Heads to AFC East rival

    The Patriots and Copeland agreed to terms on a contract Sunday, Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.

    Copeland has completed his four-game suspension and is eligible to return to action for the Jets in Week 6, Spencer Aber of USA Today reports. The Jets currently possess a roster exemption for Copeland, and coach Adam Gase reportedly intends to evaluate his performance in practice before officially activating him. The 28-year-old is coming off a year in which he notched career highs across the board, recording 35 tackles (24 solo) and five sacks across 16 contests.

  • Jets' Brandon Copeland: Faces four-game suspension

    Copeland is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance enhancing substances policy, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Copeland projects to play a starting role in the Jets' 3-4 defense but now appears in line to miss the first quarter of the team's regular season. Jachai Polite, Harvey Lang and Frankie Luvu will compete for starting snaps as long as Copeland remains sidelined. With Avery Williamson (knee) on IR due to a torn ACL, New York's linebacker corps could struggle to provide depth until Copeland returns.

  • Brandon Copeland: Headed for free agency

    Copeland did not receive a contract tender from the Lions, Michael Rothstein of ESPN reports. Copeland, who spent the entire 2017 season on injured reserve, will thus become an unrestricted free agent. Before going down with a torn pectoral muscle in the preseason, he was in competition for the starting job at strong-side linebacker while also taking reps at defensive end. Fortunately, the Penn product was recently cleared to return to football activities and should be able to participate in offseason workouts with whichever team he may ultimately sign with.
