  • Patriots' Brandon King: Absent from injury report

    King (thigh) isn't listed on Wednesday's injury report.

    King was inactive for Sunday's win over the Chargers due to the thigh issue, but he's clear of the injury report for Wednesday. The 28-year-old has almost exclusively played special teams for the Patriots this season.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Ruled out of Sunday's game

    King (thigh) has been declared out of Sunday's game against the Chargers.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Passes physical, off PUP list

    King (undisclosed) has passed his physical and has been activated off the PUP list Saturday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.

    King has dealt with numerous injuries to start his NFL career, but the 28-year-old will look for a fresh start as he returns to training camp healthy. King is firmly supplanted behind Adrian Phillips and Kyle Dugger on the depth chart, but he will have an opportunity to make a name for himself on special teams.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Placed on PUP list

    King (undisclosed) was placed on the Active/PUP list Thursday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

    Over the last two seasons, King has failed to reach the field as he battled knee and quadricep injuries. Currently, it's unclear what is ailing the 28-year-old, but he is eligible to return from the PUP list at any time during training camp.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Will miss first six games

    King (quadriceps) was placed on the reserve/PUP list Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    King is still healing from the torn quadriceps he suffered in August of 2019, and he was moved from the active/PUP list. The shift means King will miss at least the first six games of the year and won't count against the team's active roster unless he's activated.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Placed on PUP list

    The Patriots placed King (quadriceps) on the active/PUP list Sunday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    King spent the entire 2019 campaign on IR due to a torn quadriceps suffered during the preseason, and he still appears to be working his way back from the injury. He'll contribute as a leader on special-teams for New England when healthy.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Placed on IR

    The Patriots placed King (quadriceps) on injured reserve Sunday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

    King suffered a torn quadriceps during Thursday's preseason game, an injury that will likely cost him the entire 2019 season. Barring an injury settlement with the team, King will reside on IR for the season.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Out with torn quad

    King is likely out for the season after sustaining a torn left quadriceps in Thursday's preseason game over the Panthers, Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.

    King was carted off the field Thursday and sees his 2019 season come to an early end. The Patriots will certainly feel the 26-year-old's absence on special teams.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Departs on cart

    King left Thursday's preseason game against the Panthers on a cart after suffering an apparent left leg injury, Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.

    The details surrounding King's injury aren't clear just yet, though it's not a good sign that he couldn't get off the field under his own power.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Sticking with New England

    King signed a two-year extension with the Patriots on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    King was entering the final season of his current two-year deal but is now signed through 2021. The 25-year-old has 42 tackles (30 solo) in his four-year career, and has exclusively played special teams for the Patriots.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Set to play

    King (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

    King missed Week 16 due to a knee injury that also kept him limited in practice this week, but he's slated to provide depth on special teams Sunday.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Questionable for Sunday

    King (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.

    King was inactive for last week's win over the Bills, and has been a limited participant in practice this week. If the special-teams ace were to remain sidelined Week 17, Ramon Humber could take over his duties.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Can't shake injury

    King (knee) will be inactive for Sunday's game versus the Bills.

    King has yet to log a defensive snap all season, working as an important special-teams role instead. Ramon Humber could take over those duties in this outing, but there aren't fantasy implications attached.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Questionable for Sunday

    King (knee) is considered questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Bills.

    King was a limited participant each day this week. The Auburn product has yet to miss a game this season. King, however, has yet to log a snap on defense -- therefore, his absence wouldn't have much of an effect on New England's defensive scheme.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Inks two-year extension with New England

    King agreed Thursday with the Patriots on a two-year, $2.6 million contract extension, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports.

    A core special-teams contributor for the Patriots since joining the club as an undrafted rookie in 2015, King will earn a pay raise for his quality work in kick coverage the past three seasons. Barring significant injuries to the secondary, however, don't expect the Patriots to turn to King for duties on defense in 2018. All 535 of his career regular-season snaps have come on special teams.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Full participant Thursday

    King (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice session.

    King was limited during Wednesday's practice due to an unspecified knee injury but the issue didn't hinder him at all Thursday. He isn't expected to be limited by the injury during the Super Bowl on Sunday. Look for King to see his typical role as a depth safety and special teams player.

  • Patriots' Brandon King: Active Week 16

    King (hamstring) is active for Sunday's contest against Buffalo.

    King sat out New England's last two games and was limited in practice this week. Though he's returning to action, he likely won't see a large role, as he's little more than a depth safety and special teams player.
