  • Patriots' Jahlani Tavai: Logs 110 tackles during 2023 season

    Tavai recorded 110 tackles, two interceptions and a sack in 17 games with the Patriots during the 2023 regular season.

    Per Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site, Tavai finished the campaign as Pro Football Focus' fourth-ranked linebacker with an 86.5 grade, while taking a step forward as a hybrid ILB/OLB for the team. It's a role that the 2019 second-rounder is slated to reprise, with Tavai signed with New England through the 2024 season.

  • Patriots' Jahlani Tavai: Could play Week 18

    Tavai (teeth) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Jets.

  • Patriots' Jahlani Tavai: Chance to play Week 16

    Tavai (ankle) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday night's game against the Broncos.

    The 27-year-old seems to have suffered an ankle injury at some point within the last week, and after a limited week of practice, he's got a chance to play in Week 16. Tavai's availability will be something to look out for Sunday, as Ja'Whaun Bentley (knee) is also listed as questionable, meaning New England could be without both of their top inside linebackers. If Tavai is unable to suit up in Week 16, Mack Wilson would likely see increased snaps for the Patriots' defense.
