Position Listing
Mike Purcell
The Rams claimed Purcell off waivers Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of reports.

Purcell spent his first three seasons in the league with the 49ers after joining the team as an undrafted free agent. During the 2016 campaign, Purcell played in 15 games (five starts), tallying 26 tackles and a forced fumble. After being waived by the 49ers earlier in the week, Purcell will now join the Rams and aim to win a roster spot as a backup along the defensive line.

Nate Solder
Solder (undisclosed) did not make an appearance on the team's Week 1 injury report.

Solder had been dealing with an undisclosed ailment for several days, but his absence from the injury report seems to confirm it's now behind him. The seven-year vet is expected to anchor the offensive line in Thursday's season opener.

Dont'a Hightower
Hightower (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Hightower underwent season-ending pectoral surgery nearly two weeks ago and now officially has been placed on injured reserve. Without both Hightower and fellow linebacker Shea McClellin (concussion), the Patriots will have to rely on their depth at the position for the remainder of the season, starting with David Harris and Marquis Flowers.

Pectoral - Injured Reserve
Eric Rowe
Rowe (groin) is listed as inactive for Sunday's matchup with the Raiders.

Rowe will miss his sixth consecutive game Sunday as he continues to struggle in his recovery. The third-year pro will be replaced by a rotation of Johnson Bademosi and Jonathan Jones.

Groin - Inactive for Week 11 at Oakland
Caleb Kidder
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Brandin Cooks
Cooks caught six of nine pass attempts for 149 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 33-8 thrashing of the Raiders.

The vast majority of the yards came on two plays of 52 and 64 yards, the latter going for a touchdown as Cooks used his speed to blow by a lapsing Raiders secondary. It was the second time in two weeks that he tied his season-high reception total of six. The Oregon product will attempt to continue his momentum against the Dolphins in Week 12.

Kyle Van Noy
Van Noy posted a team-high seven tackles (six solo) and two sacks in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Jets.

It was Van Noy's fourth straight game with at least seven tackles, and the linebacker has now recorded 3.5 sacks over his last three games. Van Noy was on the field for 65 of the team's 76 defensive snaps Sunday, and his production over the last few games on top of that usage rate is making him an intriguing IDP option.

Stephen Gostkowski
Gostkowski made both of his field-goal attempts en route to recording 11 points in Sunday's 41-16 win over the Broncos.

Now past his bye week, Gostkowski remains one of fantasy's more reliable kickers while working behind the Patriots' prolific offense. He's scored in double digits in five of his last six outings and is averaging 10.1 points per game on the season.

Jonathan Jones
No Updates
Dion Lewis
Lewis ran 10 times for 60 yards and caught all four of his targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in New England's 33-8 defeat of the Raiders.

It was his fifth consecutive game with 10 or more carries and his four targets were a season high. The 27-year-old seems to have locked down a role as the Patriots' primary running back, but even so, the Patriots are known for involving all of their weapons and changing up their focal point seemingly every week, making it hard to trust him for consistent production. However, Lewis has a slew of advantageous matchups on the slate, starting with Miami at home in Week 12.

Will Tye
Tye has joined the Patriots' practice squad, Mike Reiss of reports.

Tye gives the Patriots some added tight end depth behind Rob Gronkowski, Dwayne Allen and Jacob Hollister. The 25-yeard-old, who caught 48 passes for 395 yards and a TD for the Giants last season, started the 2017 campaign with the Jets, but was waived earlier this month after catching three passes for 48 yards in three contests with the team.

Rob Gronkowski
Gronkowski caught all three passes directed his way for 36 yards in Sunday's 33-8 defeat of the Raiders.

Despite the Raiders being a good matchup against tight ends, Gronkowski was not a major part of the game plan and simply wasn't targeted after the Patriots got up 24-0 early in the third quarter. The Patriots' other tight ends, Dwayne Allen and Martellus Bennett, totaled five targets in the contest, with three of them coming in the second half. Gronk will look to get back to his dominant ways in Week 12 against Miami.

Jordan Richards
Richards (knee) will be active for Saturday's game against the Jets.

Richards will likely see reps on special teams with usual starting safeties Patrick Chung and Devin McCourty both healthy.

David Jones
No Updates
Trevor Reilly
Jets linebacker Trevor Reilly sustained a head injury during Sunday’s game against the Vikings. The team reported Reilly will not return.
Nate Ebner
Ebner (shoulder) was not present on the Patriots' injury report Wednesday.

After sitting out the first two games of the season, Ebner looks ready to go against the Texans on Sunday. The 27-year-old likely will see few defensive snaps and resume his role as a special teams stalwart for the Patriots.

Antonio Garcia
Illness - Out for Week 12 vs. Miami
No Updates
Devin McCourty
McCourty recorded his first interception of the season in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Jets.

McCourty was the only Patriots defender to play every defensive snap and also tallied five tackles (four solo). The 30-year-old is a reliable every-down safety who leads New England with 47 tackles (41 solo) this season.

Julian Edelman
The Patriots placed Edelman (knee) on injured reserve Saturday, Phil Perry of CSN New England reports.

With his placement on IR, Edelman's season is officially over due to an ACL tear in his right knee. In his stead, Tom Brady is expected to lean on reliable options like Rob Gronkowski and Brandin Cooks, but Chris Hogan and James White are also prime candidates to experience significant usage in 2017.

Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Vincent Valentine
Valentine (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Valentine practiced on a limited basis Thursday but sat out Wednesday and Friday's sessions, so this isn't a major surprise. Undrafted rookie Adam Butler could see an enhanced role with Valentine missing his second consecutive game to start the season.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Brandon Bolden
Bolden did not record any snaps on offense in Thursday's 42-27 loss to the Chiefs, per ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Bolden is clearly behind Mike Gillislee, Rex Burkhead, James White and Dion Lewis in the Patriots' backfield pecking order, but his special teams prowess should lead to him being on the team's active roster on most weeks.

Cassius Marsh
Marsh (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Marsh was listed as questionable after being a limited participant at practice this week. The 25-year-old should serve as the primary reserve defensive end for the Patriots on Sunday.

Damarius Travis
No Updates
Patrick Chung
Chung logged eight tackles (seven solo) and a pass defended in Sunday's victory over the Saints.

Chung led the way in tackles along with teammate Elandon Roberts. The veteran safety only recorded three in the team's season opening loss to the Chiefs but was much more active in this contest. He rarely saw the sideline, as he took the field for 63 snaps (97 percent) in the victory. He'll have a favorable matchup next week when the Patriots welcome rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson and the Texans to Foxborough.

Johnson Bademosi
The Lions traded Bademosi to the Patriots in exchange for a 2019 sixth-round draft pick, ESPN's Michael Rothstein reports.

Both teams seemed to benefit here, as the Lions get extra draft capital while the win-now Patriots receive a proficient special teams player who can contribute from the get-go.

David Andrews
Andrews has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders with an undisclosed illness.

Andrews was added to the Patriots' injury report Thursday and didn't participate at Friday's practice. Ted Karras will serve as the starting center with Andrews unavailable.

Illness - Inactive for Week 11 at Oakland
Joe Thuney
No Updates
Duron Harmon
Harmon (knee) played 20 defensive snaps in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans.

It looks as though Harmon has fully recovered from the knee injury that been plaguing him for quite some time. Harmon projects to serve as a backup safety for New England this season after accruing 29 stops and an interception in 16 appearances in 2016.

Stephon Gilmore
Gilmore is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Raiders due to dehydration.

It is the second contest this season that Gilmore has been forced out of due to the ailment. Jonathan Jones should step in for him while he's out.

Harvey Langi
The Patriots placed Langi (neck) on the Reserve/Non-football injury list Wednesday, Ryan Hannable of WEEI Boston Radio reports.

Langi's season is officially over, but the good news is that he and his wife were able to exit the hospital earlier this week. The 25-year-old primarily served as a special teams player for the Patriots this season.

Neck - Out for Week 12 vs. Miami
LaAdrian Waddle
Waddle (head) returned to practice Tuesday, Phil Perry of reports.

Now that he's healthy, Waddle should return to the role of Nate Solder's backup.

Ricky Jean Francois
Jean Francois signed with the Patriots on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The signing likely comes as a result of Malcom Brown still being sidelined with an ankle injury, as Jean Francois will be able to add some veteran depth along the defensive line. Jean Francois was released by the Packers last week.

Malcolm Mitchell
Mitchell (knee) is "not close" to being in consideration for returning to practice, Mike Reiss of reports.

The initial thought was that Mitchell could be one of the two players activated from the Patriots' injured reserve list after sustaining the knee injury shortly before the team's Week 1 contest, but it seems his recovery isn't going as quickly as planned. Since the Patriots -- who have been struggling defensively throughout the season -- have other options to activate from IR in the form of defensive tackle Vincent Valentine (knee) and linebacker Shea McClellin (undisclosed), it's possible Mitchell might not return at any point this season.

Knee - Injured Reserve
James Ferentz
Ferentz signed a contract with the Patriots on Thursday.

Ferentz spent the last two seasons with Denver, where he appeared in 21 regular-season games and one postseason game. Now with New England, the 27-year-old offensive lineman will look to make the team as a depth and special teams player.

Mike Gillislee
Gillislee is inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Gillislee will be a healthy scratch for the second consecutive week, which sets the stage for Dion Lewis, Rex Burkhead and James White to head the Patriots' backfield Sunday. Future game plans may lead to Gillislee's power running skills being needed in subsequent weeks, but for now at least, he's the odd man out.

Coach's Decision - Inactive for Week 11 at Oakland
Matthew Slater
Slater (hamstring) was officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Slater sustained the injury in last Sunday's win over the Broncos and was unable to practice this week. The 32-year-old has battled hamstring issues for much of the season and the Patriots will miss his presence on special teams.

Hamstring - Inactive for Week 11 at Oakland
Deatrich Wise
Wise (concussion) was fully suited up for Tuesday's practice, Erik Scalavino of the Patriots' official site reports.

The 2017 fourth-round pick is competing for a backup role at defensive end, so it's a good sign that he'll have two more preseason games to earn his keep.

Rex Burkhead
Burkhead, who logged 36 out of a possible 70 snaps on offense, carried 10 times for 36 yards and caught all three of his targets for 27 yards and a TD in Sunday's 41-16 win over the Broncos.

Meanwhile, Dion Lewis recorded 14 carries for 55 yards and a TD on 21 snaps, while James White parlayed his 11 snaps into two carries and three catches for 11 yards, one of which was a TD. With the Patriots electing to roll with four tight ends Sunday, power back Mike Gillislee was a healthy scratch, but it's quite possible that game-plan motivated move won't carry into Week 11. In any case, while Burkhead can't be counted on for workhorse-back production, his role in the Patriots offense is growing to the point that he's worthy of lineup consideration in deeper fantasy formats, in particular PPR arrangements.

Joe Cardona
No Updates
Ryan Allen
No Updates
Cameron Fleming
Fleming (ankle) is inactive for the Patriots' season opener against the Chiefs on Thursday.

There was some optimism that Fleming might be ready to play after returning to practice Tuesday, but instead he will not dress against the Chiefs. Regardless, the former fourth-round pick now has plenty of time to be ready for Week 2.

Alan Branch
Branch did not travel with the team for Thursday's game against Tampa Bay, Mike Reiss of reports.

With Branch not appearing on the team's injury report Thursday, he is considered a healthy scratch, which doesn't come as much of a surprise considering the tackle has seen his playing time decline this season. Branch re-signed with the Patriots for $12 million over two years this offseason, but so far, he's been unable to perform to last season's level.

Brian Hoyer
Hoyer signed a three-year contract with the Patriots on Wednesday, Mike Reiss of reports.

With the team having traded Jacoby Brissett to the Colts prior to the start of the season and Jimmy Garoppolo to the 49ers earlier this week, the Patriots had a pressing need for a backup quarterback heading into their Week 9 bye. Hoyer, who played for New England from 2009 to 2011, brings familiarity with the organization -- as well as NFL starting experience -- to the table, thus giving the Patriots a viable insurance option in the event of an injury to starter Tom Brady. Moreover, the duration of the 32-year-old's deal creates a scenario that could possibly lead to the franchise drafting a young quarterback this spring to develop behind Brady.

Malcolm Butler
Butler has rejoined the Patriots for the beginning of their post-draft workout program, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

A subject of trade rumors throughout the offseason, Butler was uncertain to report to the Patriots immediately in the offseason. However, with the draft passing by without Butler being dealt elsewhere, it appears that the cornerback is now locked in with the Patriots for at least the 2017 season. Butler and offseason pickup Stephon Gilmore should combine to form one of the league's strongest cornerback tandems.

Cyrus Jones
Jones has been ruled out for the season with a torn ACL and partially torn meniscus, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Jones suffered the non-contact injury in Thursday's preseason finale against the Giants, and the 2016 second-round pick will have to sit out his second NFL season. He was likely going to play a role as a return man and on special teams coverage this season.

Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Malcom Brown
Brown (ankle) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Brown was a limited participant in practice this week, his first practices since sustained the injury in Week 7. The 23-year-old appears closer to returning but there remains no officially timeline for his recovery.

Ankle - Inactive for Week 11 at Oakland
Brandon King
King (undisclosed) did not appear on the team's Week 1 injury report.

His absence from the report hints that he'll be available for Thursday's season opener. Whether he plays is a different story, however.

Phillip Dorsett
Dorsett logged a season-high 49 snaps on offense (out of a possible 70) in Sunday's 41-16 win over the Broncos, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. In the process, he caught both of his targets for 16 yards.

As expected, with Chris Hogan (shoulder) out Sunday, Dorsett saw an expanded role in the Patriots passing offense, but he wasn't able to parlay the added work into a fantasy-worthy effort. Whether that might change next weekend against a more giving Oakland pass defense largely hinges on the status of Hogan, who is a candidate to remain sidelined in Week 11.

Chase Farris
Farris (undisclosed) was waived Thursday by the Patriots, Phil Berry of CSN New England reports.

Ferris was waived with a non-football injury designation after spending the majority of last season on the team's practice squad. The Patriots now have an open roster spot with training camp just around the corner.

Undisclosed - Questionable for Week 12 vs. Miami
Ryan Lewis
No Updates
Geneo Grissom
The Patriots released Grissom on Thursday.

Grissom's dismissal frees up a roster spot for tight end Martellus Bennett, who was claimed off waivers from the Packers. In four games with the Patriots this season, Grissom managed just one tackle across 85 snaps (82 on special teams).

Marquis Flowers
Flowers was traded to the Patriots on Tuesday for a seventh-round pick, Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Flowers is coming off a 2016 campaign with the Bengals where he appeared in all 16 games but mostly as a member of special teams. In New England, he'll likely serve a similar role as a depth option on defense and key member of the special teams unit.

Lawrence Guy
Guy will sign a four-year, $20 million contract with the Patriots, Ian Rapoport of reports.

Guy has worked his way into a couple productive seasons the last two years with the Ravens. He posted his best campaign in 2015, recording 46 tackles (29 solo) and 4.5 sacks in that season. Entering his seventh season, the 26-year-old will likely reprise that role when the team employs its 3-4 scheme in 2017.

Cole Croston
No Updates
Elandon Roberts
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.

Marcus Cannon
Cannon (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Cannon remained in Massachusetts while the team practiced in Colorado Springs this week ahead of Sunday's matchup in Mexico City, so it was never expected that he would be available in Week 11. The 29-year-old will likely need to at least string together a couple a practice sessions in order to make a return Week 12 against the Dolphins.

Ankle - Inactive for Week 11 at Oakland
Cody Hollister
No Updates
Keionta Davis
Back - Out for Week 12 vs. Miami
No Updates
David Harris
Harris is signing a two-year deal with the Patriots, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Released in early June as part of the Jets' offseason purge, the 33-year-old Harris will stay in the AFC East and help his former team's chief rival fill a major need next to Dont'a Hightower in the linebacking corps. Harris had at least 75 tackles in each of his 10 seasons with the Jets, falling shy of the century mark last season (95 in 15 games) for the first time since 2011. His days as a valuable IDP likely are a thing of the past, but he should help the New England run defense while also providing an occasional pass-rushing threat (35.5 career sacks).

Chris Hogan
Hogan (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

With another absence on tap, Phillip Dorsett will continue to see added work in the Patriots' passing attack, working opposite fellow wideout Brandin Cooks while Danny Amendola mans the slot. Though held to just two catches for 16 yards in the Week 10 win over the Broncos, Dorsett's fantasy outlook should improve a bit in Week 11 in what looks like a more favorable matchup. The same sort of narrative applies to Amendola in PPR formats.

Shoulder - Inactive for Week 11 at Oakland
Shaq Mason
No Updates
James Develin
Develin signed a two-year deal with the Patriots on Monday, Ben Volin of the Boston Globe reports.

Develin played in 30 percent of New England's offensive snaps in 2016, recording three receptions for 18 yards. He's primarily a blocker and a special teams player who shouldn't be expected to have any fantasy value in 2017, though his return is a boost for the rest of the Patriots' running game.

Derek Rivers
Rivers suffered a torn ACL and a sprained LCL in Wednesday's practice, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Rivers suffered the injuries covering a kickoff in Wednesday's practice. The rookie defensive end will seek a second opinion before committing to surgery, but it looks as though his season is over.

Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Trey Flowers
Flowers recorded a season-high six tackles and notched a sack in Sunday's 36-33 victory over the Texans.

Flowers started the game strong with a tackle and sack to force a three-and-out on Houston's first possession. His impact was more subdued the rest of the game as the Texans lit up the scoreboard, but Flowers' high snap count (68) allowed him to rack up the stops.

Dwayne Allen
Allen was on the field for 20 out of a possible 70 snaps on offense in Sunday's 41-16 win over the Broncos, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

More importantly, Allen caught his first pass of the season (on two targets), which resulted in an 11-yard TD. The continued presence and health of Rob Gronkowski, coupled with the team's recent addition of Martellus Bennett, however, limits Allen's fantasy utility in the coming weeks.

Andrew Jelks
Jelks is dealing with a knee issue and will open training camp on the Patriots' Non-Football Injury list, Phil Perry of CSN New England reports.

Jelks dealt with knee injuries that kept him off the field for parts of both of his final two seasons at Vanderbilt. The offensive tackle's health issues will only further hurt his case for winning a roster spot.

Knee - Out for Week 12 vs. Miami
James White
White was on the field for 11 of a possible 70 snaps on offense in Sunday's 41-16 win over the Broncos.

While Mike Gillislee was a healthy scratch Sunday, White was out-snapped by both Rex Burkhead (36) and Dion Lewis (21), who combined for 24 carries Week 10. For his part, White ran just twice for seven yards but managed to provide a degree of fantasy utility by catching three passes for 11 yards and a TD. In a crowded backfield, limited carries are the norm for White, but his involvement in the Patriots' passing attack does at least make him relevant in PPR formats.

Tom Brady
Brady completed 30 of 37 passes for 339 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 33-8 win over the Raiders.

He threw for a score in each of the first three quarters with the final blow being a 64-yard bomb to Brandin Cooks. The duo also connected on a 52-yarder in the second quarter, and Brady had little trouble dicing up the Raiders' defense during any other part of the day. The former Wolverine has another plus matchup at home against the Dolphins in Week 12.

Martellus Bennett
Bennett (shoulder, hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

While Bennett may see the field more this week after recording just seven snaps on offense in his return to the Patriots last weekend, his fantasy production figures to be sporadic as long as star tight end Rob Gronkowski remains healthy.

Jacob Hollister
Hollister was on the field for four of a possible 86 snaps on offense in Sunday's 21-13 win over the Chargers.

Hollister hauled in his only target Sunday for 13 yards, upping his season-long total to three catches for 37 yards. He remains off the fantasy radar in his role as the Patriots' third-string tight end behind Rob Gronkowski and Dwayne Allen.

Adam Butler
No Updates
Danny Amendola
Amendola caught eight of nine pass attempts for 66 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 33-8 win over the Raiders.

With Chris Hogan missing a second straight week, Amendola stepped up and was one yard shy of equaling his output from the past three games combined. The nine targets were the most he's seen on the season and good enough for a share of the team lead on the day with Brandin Cooks. If Hogan is forced to miss another game, the Texas Tech product could be in line for similar work against Miami in Week 12.

Ted Karras
Karris joined the Patriots' 53-man roster Thursday, Mike Reiss of reports.

Karras takes the roster spot of wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell, who was placed on injured reserve. Barring injury, the 2016 sixth-round pick will likely remain a depth option for New England this season.

Shea McClellin
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick confirmed Wednesday that McClellin (concussion) wouldn't be activated from injured reserve, Mike Reiss of reports.

With McClellin's 21-day practice window coming to a close Wednesday and the linebacker having recently suffered a setback in his recovery from the concussion, it was an easy choice for the Patriots to shut him down for the season rather than activate him. McClellin will enter the final year of his three-year, $8.95 million contract with the Patriots in 2018.
