by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jelks (knee) will open training camp on the non-football injury list, Phil Perry of CSN New England reports.

Jelks dealt with knee injuries that kept him off the field in each of his final two seasons at Vanderbilt and it seems as if they're still a problem.

Patriots' Alan Branch: On PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots placed Branch (undisclosed) on their preseason physically unable to perform list Monday, Adam Kurkjian of the Boston Herald reports.

The report notes that Branch, who normally skips a large portion of the Patriots' spring practices, typically stays on the team's PUP list until he passes a conditioning test. The 6-foot-6, 350-pounder is coming off a 2016 campaign in which he recorded 49 tackles and 1.5 sacks over the course of 16 regular-season contests. Branch is projected to start in the middle of the Patriots' defensive line along with fellow defensive tackle Malcom Brown.

Patriots' Dont'a Hightower: Lands on preseason PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots have placed Hightower (undisclosed) on their preseason PUP list, the Boston Herald reports.

It's not a huge surprise to see Hightower on the list, as he was restricted to conditioning work during spring practices. While the Patriots did not relay what, specifically, is ailing the veteran linebacker, CSN New England notes that Hightower was limited at times last season by knee and shoulder injuries. Inked in March to a four-year deal with a maximum value of $43.5 million, the 27-year-old Hightower can return to practice at any time during training camp.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harmon underwent offseason ankle surgery and is nearing a return to the field, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

While the surgery prevented Harmon from taking part in the Patriots' offseason program, it isn't clear if he'll miss any part of training camp, which opens Wednesday.

Patriots' Jacoby Brissett: Appears in no danger of losing roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brissett doesn't appear in danger of losing his roster spot in 2017, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

The Patriots likely had a long-term approach in mind when they spent a third-round pick on Brissett in 2016, considering Tom Brady's on the back nine of his career and Jimmy Garoppolo's a candidate to leave in free agency next offseason. While in the past New England has only carried two quarterbacks on the active roster in order to open up a spot at a position elsewhere, the Patriots would risk losing Brissett to another team if they simply stashed him on their practice squad. As such, the second-year NC State product likely won't be going anywhere else anytime soon.
