  • Patriots' Raekwon McMillan: Limited in practice Wednesday

    McMillan (thumb) was listed as a limited participant on the Patriots' injury report Wednesday.

    McMillan was listed as questionable for Sunday's loss to Green bay after sitting out the previous game due to a thumb injury, but he was ultimately able to suit up and play 16 special-teams snaps in Week 4. The 26-year-old has yet to record a statistic after tallying five tackles over 41 defensive snaps in the season opener, and he'll slot into a primary reserve behind inside linebackers Mack Wilson and Ja'Whaun Bentley when healthy.

  • Patriots' Raekwon McMillan: Iffy for Sunday

    McMillan (thumb) was a limited participant in practice Friday.

    McMillan was questionable for Week 2 against the Steelers with the injury, but he was able to suit up. However, he played limited snaps, then proceeded to sit out Week 3 against the Ravens. If he is unable to play, it could lead to extra opportunity for Jahlani Tavai.

  • Patriots' Raekwon McMillan: Ruled out Sunday

    McMillan (thumb) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

    McMillan was a limited participant during both Wednesday's and Thursday's sessions, but his inability to practice Friday suggests he's not ready to suit up Sunday against Baltimore. The 242-pounder played though his thumb injury Week 2 against the Steelers, but he must've re-aggravated it sometime throughout the past week. Fellow linebackers Ja'Whaun Bentley, Mack Wilson and Jahlani Tavai are in line for expanded roles while McMillan remains out. His next opportunity to return to the playing field comes next Sunday when the team travels to Green Bay.

  • Patriots' Raekwon McMillan: Playing in Week 2

    McMillan (thumb) is active for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh.

    It's likely McMillan picked up his thumb injury during practice as he made it through Week 1's matchup at Miami without injuring himself. The linebacker played 41 defensive snaps and logged five tackles (four solo) during the season opener. After missing the entire 2021 campaign due to a torn ACL, McMillan will look to return to his inside linebacker role.

  • Patriots' Raekwon McMillan: Pops up on injury report

    McMillan is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers due to a thumb injury,

    McMillan presumably picked up the injury at practice, as he just popped up as a limited participant on Friday. His status for Sunday will likely depend on how his thumb is feeling closer to kickoff. If he ends up being unable to give it a go, Mack Wilson would presumably fill in for him at inside linebacker.

  • Patriots' Raekwon McMillan: Clear for training camp

    New England activated McMillan off the active/PUP list Monday, Zack Cox of reports.

    McMillan's stint on the physically-unable to perform list lasted less than a week, and it appears he'll be ready to go for the first day of training camp Wednesday. Provided he doesn't suffer any more setbacks with his knee, he'll work in a depth role in the Pats' front seven and in a regular capacity on special teams.

  • Patriots' Raekwon McMillan: Lands on PUP list

    McMillan (knee) was added to the Patriots' active/PUP list Thursday, Michael Rothstein of reports.

    McMillan will not be allowed to practice during New England's upcoming training camp until he is removed from this list, a move that the Patriots can make at any time before the start of the regular season. The linebacker suffered a torn ACL last offseason, forcing him to miss the entirety of the 2021 campaign. McMillan is expected to make a full recovery from this injury, and he should push for a role at inside linebacker behind Ja'Whaun Bentley and Mack Wilson heading into the regular season.

  • Patriots' Raekwon McMillan: Ready to make impact in New England

    McMillan (knee) said in May that he's "ready to go" after missing the entire 2021 campaign due to a torn ACL, Mike Reiss of reports.

    McMillan signed a one-year, $1.15 million deal with the Patriots last offseason, but he never appeared in a regular season game for his new team after tearing his ACL while covering a kickoff during an offseason practice. McMillan said, "it's been a long year for me, but we're moving forward. After sitting back and watching, I'm ready to go." The 2017 second-round pick recorded 177 tackles across 19 appearances during his first two seasons in Miami, but he served more as a depth piece with Las Vegas in 2020. New England lost Dont'a Hightower, Jamie Collins and Kyle Van Noy this offseason, so McMillan may operate as a starter, which could elevate him into fantasy relevancy in IDP leagues.

  • Patriots' Raekwon McMillan: Still held back by knee

    McMillan (knee) was limited during OTAs, Zack Cox of reports.

    Apparently it was premature to assume McMillan had fully recovered from the torn ACL he suffered in August of 2021. New England already has the middle of its defense locked down by Ja'Whaun Bentley, who notched 109 tackles last season, with recent trade acquisition Mack Wilson available in reserve. Assuming McMillan is ready to play come Week 1, he'll likely see most of his action on special teams.

  • Patriots' Raekwon McMillan: Clean bill of health

    McMillan (knee) is participating in OTAs, Mike Dussault of the Patriots' official site reports.

    McMillan missed last season after suffering a torn ACL during practice in August. The 26-year-old last played with the Raiders in 2020 and was more of a contributor on special teams than defense. How big of a role a healthy McMillan will play in the Patriots' linebacker rotation remains to be seen.

  • Patriots' Raekwon McMillan: Extended through 2022

    McMillan (knee) signed a one-year extension Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    McMillan suffered a torn ACL during training camp so will not take the field this season. It's possible that his role expands in 2022 if he proves fully healthy, though he was likely headed for a role primarily on special teams while also serving as depth among the team's linebacker corps.

  • Patriots' Raekwon McMillan: Suffers torn ACL

    McMillan was placed on injured reserve Saturday after he suffered a torn ACL in a recent practice, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    McMillan missed his rookie season in 2017 due to a torn ACL, and he's now dealing with the same injury in his other knee. The linebacker signed a one-year deal with the Patriots during the offseason after he played mostly on special teams with the Raiders last year, but he won't be back on the field until at least 2022.

  • Patriots' Raekwon McMillan: Will sign with Patriots

    McMillan is expected to sign a one-year contract with the Patriots on Friday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

    Though Washington was keeping tabs on McMillan during free agency, it appears the linebacker's heading to New England. McMillan compiled a career high in tackles (105) and had two forced fumbles as a rookie with the Dolphins in 2018, but he spent more time on special teams than defense in his lone Raiders campaign in 2020.
