Patriots' Shaq Mason: Designated for COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots placed Mason (calf) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

According to Andrew Callahan of The Springfield Republican, Mason didn't test positive for the virus, so he apparently came into close contact with someone who has COVID-19. Mason was already dealing with a calf injury and had an uncertain status for Sunday's game versus the Broncos. Hjalte Froholdt is expected to start at right guard until Mason can return.

Patriots' Shaq Mason: Ruled out for Monday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mason (calf) is inactive for Monday's game versus the Chiefs.

Mason was limited in practice all week, so he's trending in the right direction and should have a decent chance to play Week 5 against the Broncos. Expect Hjalte Froholdt to start at right guard in his place Monday.

Patriots' Shaq Mason: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mason has avoided a serious calf injury but is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus the Chiefs, Andrew Callahan of The Springfield Republican reports.

The encouraging diagnosis aligns with Mason's practice week, as he was a limited participant both Thursday and Friday. However, if he's forced to sit out Sunday, expect Hjalte Froholdt to start at right guard.

Patriots' Shaq Mason: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mason is not listed on the Patriots' injury report after Tuesday's practice.

Apparently, the ankle injury Mason suffered was of the minor variety. Assuming he doesn't aggravate it, the 26-year-old should be good to go against the Bills on Saturday.

Patriots' Shaq Mason: Managing ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mason left Sunday's win over the Bengals with an ankle injury, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports.

Mason was labeled questionable to return, but he was unlikely to retake the field given the injury was announced during the closing stages of the game. The 26-year-old's status should be updated once the Patriots begin practicing for Week 16.

Patriots' Shaq Mason: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mason (ankle) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Ravens.

Mason missed Week 8's win over the Browns with this ankle issue, but he's back in the fold and will resume his starting right guard role.

Patriots' Shaq Mason: Deemed questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mason (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Ravens.

Mason was sidelined for last week's victory over the Browns and was then absent from practice earlier in the week. However, he was able to log limited workloads on Thursday and Friday. Thus, he is trending toward a game-time decision. James Ferentz would presumably be in line to replace Mason at right guard should he ultimately be unable to give it a go.

Patriots' Shaq Mason: Sitting out Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mason (ankle) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns.

Mason was only able to practice in a limited fashion throughout the week and, as evidenced by this news, the issue will force him to miss time. With the Georgia Tech product sidelined, James Ferentz is expected to draw the start at right guard.

Patriots' Shaq Mason: Considered questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mason (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, Nora Princiotti of The Boston Globe reports.

Mason was able to practice in a limited capacity Friday after sitting out Wednesday. The Browns have a strong defensive front, so James Ferentz -- Mason's expected replacement -- could have a tough task ahead.

Patriots' Shaq Mason: Limited participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mason (ankle) was able to practice on a limited basis Thursday, Doug Kyed of NESN reports.

Mason missed Wednesday's practice, so his escalation in participation is a positive sign. The Patriots are hoping to have him available for Sunday's matchup against the Browns.

October 23, 2019 07:28 PM
Patriots' Shaq Mason: No practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mason (ankle) did not participate during Wednesday's walk-through practice, Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.

Mason appears to have picked up an ankle issue during Monday's win over the Jets. He'll have two more opportunities to upgrade his level of participation ahead of Sunday's contest against the Browns. If Mason were forced to miss any time, James Ferentz would likely draw the start at left guard.

Patriots' Shaq Mason: Active Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mason (calf) is active for Sunday's matchup with the Jets.

Mason was questionable entering Sunday's tilt after being limited in practice throughout the week. He's expected to return to his typical role with the starting offensive line after sitting out the last two weeks.

November 24, 2018 10:12 PM
Patriots' Shaq Mason: Officially listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mason (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports.

Mason practiced in a limited fashion all week and continues to nurse his lingering calf issue. The fourth-year pro has missed two straight games due to the injury, but he appears to have a shot at retaking the field during Sunday's matchup with the Jets. If Mason is unable to go, Ted Karras should slot into the starting lineup once more.

November 10, 2018 09:04 PM
Patriots' Shaq Mason: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mason (calf) was downgraded from questionable to out for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Mason will miss his second straight game with the calf injury sustained Week 8 against the Bills. Ted Karras should draw another start at right guard in his absence.

Patriots' Shaq Mason: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mason (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports.

Mason continues to nurse a calf injury sustained in a Week 8 win over the Bills, and he was limited in practice all week. The starting right guard could be a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup with the Titans, and Ted Karras would once again slot into the starting lineup if Mason were to remain sidelined.

Patriots' Shaq Mason: Ruled out for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mason (calf) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Mason suffered a calf injury during New England's win over the Bills in Week 8 and will remain sidelined as he recovers. As long as Mason is unable to suit up, Ted Karras should draw the start at right guard.

October 29, 2018 10:40 PM
Patriots' Shaq Mason: Leaves game with calf issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mason is questionable to return to Monday's game with a calf injury.

Being that it's late in the contest, a non-return wouldn't necessarily spell bad news. Mason's status will likely clear up following the contest and next week's practice report will give a good indicator of where he stands moving forward.

Patriots' Shaq Mason: Signs contract extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mason signed a five-year, $50 million contract extension with the Patriots Monday, Herbie Teope of NFL.com reports.

Mason, a regular starter on New England's O-line since the team selected him in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft, is locked in to remain in the same role for the foreseeable future. The 6-foot-1, 310-pound Mason has performed admirably as a starter for the Patriots and is rewarded by becoming one of the highest-paid right guards in the league.

Patriots' Shaq Mason: Questionable for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mason (hand) is questionable for the Patriots' Week 2 game against Miami.

Mason was limited in each practice this week due to his hand injury. He was active for Week 1 while dealing with the same injury and it wouldn't be surprising to see the depth lineman activated once again since he won't see extended time unless an injury forces him into a larger role.

September 9, 2016 05:35 PM
Patriots' Shaq Mason: Questionable for regular season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mason (hand) is questionable to play Week 1 against the Cardinals.

Mason managed to get in a limited practice session Friday, but may truly reside on the doubtful side of questionable as he only returned to practice this past Wednesday since suffering a broken hand in August. With Jonathan Cooper (foot) also questionable to play, Ted Karras could conceivably end up starting at guard.
