Gilmore was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets with a concussion.
Gilmore put in a full session Friday after being limited earlier in the week, but apparently is not clear of concussion symptoms. Josina Anderson of ESPN reports that the veteran cornerback has been dealing headaches since Week 5's Thursday night matchup with the Buccaneers.
Gilmore (ankle) is active for Thursday's game against the Buccaneers.
Gilmore was limited in practice during the short week, but will take the field for Thursday's tilt with the Buccaneers. The cornerback has logged at least 60 defensive snaps in each of the first four games, so his ankle will definitely be something to keep an eye on as the game progresses. With Eric Rowe (groin) out, the Patriots are left with very limited options at cornerback for the contest should Gilmore's injury become an issue.
Gilmore (ankle) was limited during Wednesday's practice and is listed as questionable for Thursday's matchup with the Buccaneers.
Gilmore has logged more than 60 snaps in each of the first four weeks, racking up 14 tackles (12 solo) and an interception. He's a late addition to the injury report, but just having a questionable designation is a good sign the injury isn't too severe. However, with backup Eric Rowe (groin) also out, losing Gilmore would dwindle the Patriots' cornerback depth, leading them to call upon an inexperienced Johnson Bademosi to pick up the slack.
Gilmore made four tackles (all solo) and had an interception in Sunday's 36-33 win over the Texans.
It was Gilmore's first interception as a Patriot, and set up New England's second touchdown of the game as he returned it to Houston's 12-yard line. The 28-year-old was called for a 34-yard pass interference penalty on DeAndre Hopkins in the first quarter, but otherwise matched up fairly well.
Gilmore (groin) is active for Sunday's Week 3 tilt against the Texans.
Gilmore was limited in practice throughout the week but he was never considered to be in danger of missing significant time. He'll start at corner opposite Malcolm Butler once again.
