Roberts (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Roberts sat out last week's tilt but was able to participate in practice in a limited fashion this week. Expect Roberts to see significant time against the Chargers.
Roberts (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Roberts was a limited practice participant this week after sitting out last Sunday's win over the Falcons. If the 23-year-old is unable to play against the Chargers, the Patriots' linebacker depth could be severely tested with Dont'a Hightower (pectoral) now lost for the season. Trevor Reilly and Marquis Flowers are currently the team's only available reserves at the position.
Roberts is inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons.
Roberts and backup linebacker Harvey Langi both being inactive opens the door for Marquis Flowers and David Harris to see additional snaps. The Patriots run defense will be challenged by a high-powered Atlanta running game that features the likes of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman.
Roberts recovered a fumble to go along with five tackles (four solo) in Sunday's loss to the Panthers before exiting the contest with an ankle injury.
Roberts was limited at Tuesday's practice after sitting out Monday, so he appears to be heading in the right direction for Thursday's game against the Bucs. Assuming he suits up, the 23-year-old will look to nab another turnover in the outing, as his fumble recovery against the Panthers was his first of the year.
Roberts hurt his ankle Sunday and didn't return.
Roberts has been deployed for major snaps over the last three weeks and racked up 17 tackles (13 solo). He added five (four solo) tackles Sunday before leaving the game. The second-year linebacker will have a short week to recover as the Pats head to Tampa Bay on Thursday for a mid-week game.
