by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thuney (ankle) is active for Sunday's game at Buffalo.

Thuney earned the questionable tag after practicing as a limited participant all week, but he's ready to play in Sunday's divisional matchup. The 27-year-old should take up his usual starting post at left guard for the Patriots.

Patriots' Joe Thuney: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thuney (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Bills.

Thuney stayed on the field in a limited fashion all week after injuring his ankle last Sunday against the 49ers. The Patriots' offensive line is quite banged up, so getting Thuney back would be a major boost against the Bills' front seven.

Patriots' Joe Thuney: Signs franchise tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thuney has signed his franchise tender with the Patriots, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

With that, the Patriots' left guard is slated to earn $14.781 million this coming season. The team could also look to extend, or even deal Thuney, but as it stands the 2016 third-rounder is in line to remain a vital cog on New England's offensive line in 2020.

Patriots' Joe Thuney: Receives franchise tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots placed their franchise tag on Thuney earlier this week, ESPN.com reports.

The move secures the services of Thuney for the 2020 campaign, giving New England a piece of much-needed stability on offense following the departure of Tom Brady. Thuney would have been considered the top guard on the market had he hit free agency.

Patriots' Joe Thuney: Franchise tag on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots are in line to place their franchise tag on Thuney, Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.

The report notes that last year's franchise tag for guards topped $14 million, with the looming move ensuring the Patriots will retain a key cog on their offensive line. If he had reached free agency, Thuney would have been considered the top guard available on the open market.

Patriots' Joe Thuney: Practicing with starters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thuney (foot) practiced with the starters Tuesday, the Newbury Port News reports.

Thuney has missed a combined nine snaps in the past two seasons and appears to be healthy well ahead of the 2018 season and should retake his spot at left guard for the Patriots.

Patriots' Joe Thuney: Preparing for foot surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thuney is expected to undergo foot surgery in the near future, though the Patriots are optimistic it will not affect his availability for the 2018 season, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Thuney has been a valuable piece in the New England offensive scheme, especially in terms of continuity, missing only a combined nine snaps over the past two seasons. The 2016 third-round pick won't be available for OTAs, but should be ready for the regular season as long as he can remain free of setbacks. Should anything with Thuney's procedure not go as planned, first-round pick Isaiah Wynn could factor into the mix earlier than expected, with Ted Karras and Luke Bowanko representing other potential in-house options.
