  • Patriots' Byron Cowart: Won't come off PUP list

    Coach Bill Belichick said Wednesday that Cowart (undisclosed) will remain on the PUP list, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

    Cowart was placed on the reserve/PUP list prior to the start of the regular season, and though he was designated for a return Oct. 20, he will ultimately remain sidelined for all of 2021. The 2019 fifth-round pick will focus his attention toward getting healthy for 2022.

  • Patriots' Byron Cowart: Designated to return from PUP list

    The Patriots designated Cowart (undisclosed) to return from the PUP list Wednesday, Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald reports.

    Cowart has been on the PUP list since late July, but he has finally returned to practice, which begins the 21-day period for him to be added to the active roster. If he isn't, he will remain on the PUP list for the remainder of the season. Last year, the 25-year-old played in 14 games and registered the second-most defensive tackle snaps for the Patriots, but his role may be slightly diminished when he returns due to the addition of 38th overall pick Christian Barmore.

  • Patriots' Byron Cowart: Moves to reserve/PUP list

    The Patriots placed Cowart (undisclosed) on the reserve/PUP list Wednesday.

  • Patriots' Byron Cowart: Lands on PUP

    Cowart (undisclosed) was placed on the preseason PUP list Thursday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

    The extent and nature of Cowart's injury is unknown, and he can be activated off the list at any point during training camp. Last year, the 25-year-old played in 14 games and registered the second-most defensive tackle snaps for the Patriots. However, his role may be diminished this season as New England selected Christian Barmore 38th overall, making him the first defensive tackle off the board in the 2021 NFL Draft.

  • Patriots' Byron Cowart: Clear to face Chargers

    Cowart (back) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Chargers.

    A back injury held Cowart out last Sunday against the Cardinals after he missed his first contest of 2020 while residing on the reserve/COVID-19 list between Oct. 11 and Oct. 21. He's started all nine games that he's appeared in this season, collecting a total of 23 tackles and two tackles for loss.

  • Patriots' Byron Cowart: Not playing Week 12

    Cowart (back) is inactive for Sunday's game against Arizona.

    The 24-year-old will be sidelined for at least one game due to the back injury. Isaiah Mack should have an increased role on the defensive line in Cowart's absence.

  • Patriots' Byron Cowart: Returns from coronavirus

    The Patriots activated Cowart from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.

    Cowart tested positive for COVID-19 on Oct. 11, but, as evidenced by this news, he's turned in two negative test results 24 hours apart. The Maryland product has supplied eight tackles (three solo) in four games this season, so he'll likely assume his usual rotational role across the Patriot defensive line for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

  • Patriots' Byron Cowart: Tests positive for coronavirus

    Cowart tested positive for COVID-19 late Saturday, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports. The Patriots will place him on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

    Cowart becomes the third Patriots player to test positive for COVID-19 in just over a week, joining quarterback Cam Newton and cornerback Stephon Gilmore. His positive test resulted in New England shutting down its facility Sunday for the third time in 10 days, with the NFL subsequently postponing the Patriots' game Monday against the Broncos until Sunday, Oct. 18. Cowart could gain clearance to play Week 6, but he'll first need to submit two negative COVID-19 test results at least 24 hours apart.
