  • Patriots' Kristian Wilkerson: Staying in New England

    The Patriots signed Wilkerson to a reserve/future contract Monday.

    Wilkerson spent most of the 2021 season on the Patriots' practice squad but was elevated to the active roster three times. Across those appearances, he caught four of eight targets for two touchdowns. The 25-year-old will remain with New England heading into the offseason and could attempt to secure a 53-man roster spot ahead of the 2022 campaign.

  • Patriots' Kristian Wilkerson: Unavailable Saturday

    Wilkerson (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Saturday in Buffalo.

    Wilkerson's elevation from the practice squad Friday was a decent sign that he'd be available to the Patriots in the wild-card round. Instead, he'll be in street clothes while N'Keal Harry and Gunner Olszewski act as the depth wide receivers behind the top trio of Jakobi Meyers, Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne.

  • Patriots' Kristian Wilkerson: Joins active roster

    The Patriots elevated Wilkerson to their active roster in advance of Saturday's playoff opener against the Bills.

    With Nelson Agholor out with a concussion Week 17, Wilkerson stepped into an expanded role in the Patriots' blowout win over the Jaguars, catching four of his eight targets for 42 yards and two touchdowns. Agholor returned to action for the team's regular-season finale, so Wilkerson wasn't activated ahead of that contest. Heading into playoffs, Wilkerson gives the team added wideout depth behind Jakobi Meyers, Kendrick Bourne and Agholor, a context that makes him a speculative fantasy option this weekend.

  • Kristian Wilkerson: Not elevated ahead of Week 18

    Wilkerson will not be elevated from the Patriots' practice squad ahead of the team's Week 18 matchup with the Dolphins, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

    The wide receiver was active for the second consecutive game last week against the Jaguars, reeling in four catches for 42 yards and two scores in the Patriots' victory over the Jaguars. With Nelson Agholor returning from a concussion, Wilkerson will remain on the practice squad for Week 18.

  • Kristian Wilkerson: Not elevated for Week 18

    Wilkerson wasn't activated from the Patriots' practice squad ahead of Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

    Wilkerson had joined the Patriots' active roster in each of the last two games. However, he'll remain on the practice squad in Week 18 since Nelson Agholor has been cleared to play.

  • Patriots' Kristian Wilkerson: Status TBD for Week 18

    Wilkerson may not be elevated ahead of Sunday's game at Miami with Nelson Agholor out of the concussion protocol, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

    On the other hand, Jakobi Meyers is questionable for Week 18 after managing limited practices Wednesday through Friday. Wilkerson's availability, or lack thereof, will be notable after he made the first marks of his career in the box score this past Sunday against the Jaguars, hauling in four of eight targets for 42 yards and two touchdowns. The Patriots may merely bring him up from the practice squad as insurance in the event Meyers is unable to go this weekend, but in any case Wilkerson has a less clear path to relevance than he did Week 17.

  • Patriots' Kristian Wilkerson: Flashes with pair of scores

    Wilkerson brought in four of eight targets for 42 yards and two touchdowns in the Patriots' 50-10 win over the Jaguars on Sunday.

    Just promoted from the practice squad Saturday, Wilkerson came through handsomely with touchdown grabs of six and 20 yards in the second and third quarter, respectively. Wilkerson's promotion came as a result of the absences of Nelson Agholor (concussion) and N'Keal Harry (coach's decision), but given his performance, it's conceivable he garners active status again Week 18 against the Dolphins if either or both players are held out for precautionary reasons before the postseason.

  • Patriots' Kristian Wilkerson: Elevated ahead of Week 16

    Wilkerson has been elevated from the Patriots' practice squad ahead of Sunday's game against the Bills.

    With Nelson Agholor (concussion) out and N'Keal Harry (hip/questionable) banged up heading into Week 16 action, Wilkerson will give the Patriots some added wideout depth versus Buffalo. The 24-year-old has yet to catch a regular-season pass in the NFL.

  • Patriots' Kristian Wilkerson: Elevated for Sunday

    Wilkerson last played in 2020 and has been on the Patriots' practice squad since trying to earn a shot to get back on the active roster. With N'Keal Harry (knee) questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Wilkerson will look to add depth to the Patriots' wide receiver group.

    Wilkerson was signed to the Patriots' practice squad Wednesday, Andrew Callahan of Boston Herald reports.

    Wilkerson failed to make New England's initial 53-man roster, but he'll stick around the organization on the practice squad. The 24-year-old appeared in one game for the Patriots last year and spent most of the campaign on the practice squad.
