Patriots' Jordan Thomas: Limited use in debut with Patriots
Thomas was on the field for seven snaps on offense in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Texans.
Thomas didn't catch his only target in his debut with the Patriots, but going forward the 6-foot-5, 277-pounder has the size and skill to emerge as a factor in the team's passing attack.
