 Latest Patriots Player Notes
Oct 17 2018 - James White
  RB James White, with five catches for 53 yards Sunday, now has 37 catches on the season for 323 yards.


Oct 17 2018 - Chris Hogan
  WR Chris Hogan redeemed himself last week with a big 42-yard catch in the second half. With TE Rob Gronkowski, WR Julian Edelman, RB James White and WR Josh Gordon, Hogan will receive some single coverage and the Patriot need him to take advantage of those opportunities.


Oct 17 2018 - Marcus Cannon
  T Marcus Cannon suffered a concussion Sunday night and did not practice Wednesday. LaAdrian Waddle will replace Cannon if he is unable to play. Waddle replaced Cannon Sunday night.


Oct 15 2018 - Josh Gordon
  WR Josh Gordon is unlikely to be the player he was in 2013, when he had 87 catches for the Cleveland Browns. Gordon, though, had five catches for 42 yards Sunday night and drew a pass-interference penalty that led to a Pats touchdown. Not completely sure why the play was interference but Gordon adds a deep threat that defenses must respect.


Oct 15 2018 - Stephon Gilmore
  CB Stephon Gilmore played well, holding Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins to two catches for 18 yards. The rest of the secondary aside from Gilmore is struggling.


Oct 15 2018 - Jason McCourty
  CB Jason McCourty clearly expected help from someone over the top on that long touchdown pass to Kareem Hunt at the beginning of the second half, maybe his brother, Devin, and didn't get it.


Oct 15 2018 - Duron Harmon
  S Duron Harmon took a bad angle on the 75-yard touchdown pass to Tyreek Hill that tied the game at 40. But there was clearly a blown coverage because no one picked up Hill in the intermediate zone. Communication must improve in the Pats secondary. "I'd just say that was just bad defense, bad coaching, bad playing, bad everything. It wasn't really an extended play. No, it wasn't a scramble. The one to (Kareem) Hunt was more of a scramble play, which that was more of the same -- bad coaching, bad playing, just bad defense," Bill Belichick said.


Oct 15 2018 - Adrian Clayborn
  DE Adrian Clayborn had two quarterback pressures on third down. Still, he does not have a sack this season. It would be nice to see more pressure from him and the rest of the defensive line.


Oct 15 2018 - Dont'a Hightower
  LB Dont'a Hightower had a nice interception of Patrick Mahomes. Hightower blitzed and dropped back into coverage. Mahomes didn't see him and threw the ball right to Hightower. Hightower is improving.


Oct 10 2018 - Malcom Brown
  DT Malcom Brown, who injured his knee against Indianapolis, is practicing this week. He has only 10 tackles this year.


Oct 9 2018 - Kenneth Farrow
  RB Kenneth Farrow was signed by the Patriots to the practice squad Tuesday (Oct. 9). He had been released by the Patriots from the practice squad Sept. 20. Farrow, 25, originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with San Diego out of Houston in 2016. The 5-foot-9, 219-pounder played in 13 games with two starts as a rookie and totaled 60 rushing attempts for 192 yards and 13 receptions for 70 yards. Farrow sat out the 2017 season on injured reserve and was released by the Chargers on April 13, 2018. He was signed by New England on Aug. 27, 2018, and released on Sept. 1, 2018.


Oct 8 2018 - Calvin Munson
  LB Calvin Munson was signed by the Patriots to the practice squad Monday (Oct. 8). He had been released by the Giants from the practice squad Sept. 13. Munson, 23, originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent out of San Diego State with the New York Giants last season. The 6-foot, 243-pounder made the Giants 53-man roster and played in 14 games with five starts, finishing with 35 tackles, two sacks and one forced fumble. Munson was released by the Giants on Sept. 1, 2018, and spent time this season on the Giants practice squad.


Oct 8 2018 - Frank Herron
  DL Frank Herron was signed by the Patriots to their practice squad Monday (Oct. 8). Herron, 24, was signed by New England as a rookie free agent out of Louisiana State on May 11, 2018. The 6-foot-4, 312-pounder, was waived by the Patriots on Aug. 31, signed by Seattle to the practice squad on Sept. 3 and released by Seattle on Sept. 11.


Oct 8 2018 - Kenjon Barner
  RB Kenjon Barner was signed by the Patriots Monday (Oct. 8). Barner, 29, is in his third stint on the New England 53-man roster. He was most recently released from the team on Oct. 4, 2018. Barner saw action in the Patriots win vs. Miami in Sept. 30, and finished with three rushing attempts for 11 yards. The 5-foot-9, 195-pounder was originally drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the sixth round (182nd overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft out of Oregon. Barner was most recently with the Carolina Panthers through training camp this summer and has also had stints with the Philadelphia Eagles and Los Angeles Chargers. He has appeared in 45 regular-season games with one start and totaled 80 rushing attempts for 328 yards with three touchdowns and 21 receptions for 127 yards. He has also returned 30 punts for 259 yards and 22 kickoffs for 498 yards. Barner has appeared in four postseason contests as a reserve and tallied one punt return for 10 yards and five kickoffs for 115 yards.


Oct 4 2018 - Tom Brady
  QB Tom Brady threw his 500th career touchdown pass in the Patriots' 38-24 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday. Brady's milestone toss -- a 34-yarder to newly acquired wide receiver Josh Gordon -- came with 9:39 remaining and gave New England a 31-17 lead. Brady was 34 of 44 passing for 341 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions. Brady joins Peyton Manning (539) and Brett Favre (508) in the exclusive club. New Orleans' Drew Brees (496) could become the fourth member as early as Monday when the Saints host the Washington Redskins.


Oct 4 2018 - Julian Edelman
  WR Julian Edelman had his roster exemption lifted by the Patriots Thursday (Oct. 4) in time to play in the Thursday night game against the Colts. He had been reinstated from reserve/suspended Monday.


Oct 4 2018 - Kenjon Barner
  RB Kenjon Barner had his contract terminated by the Patriots Thursday (Oct. 4).


Oct 2 2018 - Rob Gronkowski
  TE Rob Gronkowski did not practice Tuesday with an ankle injury. Head coach Bill Belichick faces an interesting decision because the Patriots can beat the Colts without Gronkowski. Thus, Belichick might consider giving Gronkowski the game off so he does not aggravate his injury. The Patriots want to make sure Gronkowski is ready to play against the Kansas City Chiefs, who are undefeated, a week from Sunday.


Oct 2 2018 - James White
  RB James White needs one more TD catch to pass Kevin Faulk for second-most touchdown receptions among Pats running backs. White currently has 15 touchdowns catches. Larry Garron is first with 26 touchdown catches. Garron played for the Boston Patriots from 1960-1968 before Old Foxboro Stadium was built. Records indicate he is still living.


Oct 2 2018 - Julian Edelman
  WR Julian Edelman, who was suspended four games because of performing enhancing drugs, arrived at Gillette Stadium Monday morning ready to work. Edelman has not played a real game in about 18 months since the Pats beat the Atlanta Falcons in the Super Bowl. Edelman has been sorely missed in the Patriots' 2-2 start because QB Tom Brady relies on him to move the chains. The shifty wide receiver is often impossible to cover on those quick-hit, short-range patterns. Brady can take a three-step drop and Edelman is open. The Colts are so banged up in the secondary with two cornerbacks possibly missing the game with concussions and another nursing an ankle injury, it's unknown who would match up with Edelman, who moves around in the formation but typically lines up in the slot.


Oct 2 2018 - Rob Gronkowski
  TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle) did not practice Tuesday with an ankle injury. Bill Belichick faces an interesting decision because the Pats can beat the Colts without Gronkowski. Thus, Belichick might consider giving Gronkowski the game off so he does not aggravate his injury. The Pats want to make sure Gronkowski is ready to play against the Kansas City Chiefs, who are undefeated, a week from Sunday.


Oct 2 2018 - John Simon
  LB John Simon was among the Colts' final preseason roster cuts despite the fact he was one of the defense's best players in 2017. Colts GM Chris Ballard said the difficult decision was made because Simon didn't fit the new 4-3 scheme as a defensive end. Just signed last week and listed on the Patriots depth chart as a reserve defensive end, Simon debuted with five tackles and one sack in the Patriots' 38-7 home win over Miami on Sunday.


Oct 1 2018 - Julian Edelman
  WR Julian Edelman was reinstated (Patriots) from reserve/suspended by the NFL Monday (Oct. 1). He received a roster exemption that expires Oct. 5.


Sep 30 2018 - James White
  RB James White had a 22-yard rushing touchdown and 14-yard scoring pass against Miami on Sunday. Tom Brady was impressed with White's ability to track down the ball on his touchdown catch because of a high throw by Brady. "I knew where he was running, and I knew I didn't have much time to wait for him to get there, so I just tried to flip it up there to the back corner," Brady said. "Right when I let it go, I thought, 'We've got a shot.' And I kind of looked under some legs and saw him put his arms up and make a great catch. So, it was pretty sweet. Those are fun ones." White finished with eight carries for 44 yards and had eight catches for 68 yards


Sep 30 2018 - Sony Michel
  RB Sony Michel showed he is worthy of the first-round pick the team used on him in April in New England's win over Miami. Michel finished with 25 carries for 112 yards and one touchdown against the Dolphins,


Sep 27 2018 - David Jones
  S David Jones was signed by the Patriots to their practice squad Wednesday (Sept. 26). He had been waived from reserve/injured with an injury settlement by the Patriots July 27. Jones, 24, was originally signed by New England as a rookie free agent out of Richmond on May 5, 2017. The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder spent his rookie season on the Patriots practice squad. He was released by New England on July 23, 2018.


Sep 27 2018 - Ja'Whaun Bentley
  LB Ja'Whaun Bentley was placed on reserve/injured by the Patriots Wednesday (Sept. 26). He is eligible to be designated for return and begin practicing after missing at least six weeks and can play after eight weeks.


Sep 27 2018 - Rex Burkhead
  RB Rex Burkhead (neck) was placed on reserve/injured by the Patriots Wednesday (Sept. 26). He is eligible to be designated for return and begin practicing after missing at least six weeks and can play after eight weeks.


Sep 26 2018 - James White
  RB James White had a touchdown catch Sunday against the Detroit Lions. He has 14 receptions for 125 yards and two scores, and has 66 rushing yards on 13 carries this season.


Sep 26 2018 - Dont'a Hightower
  LB Dont'a Hightower, a Pro Bowl selection in 2016, has just 11 total tackles in three games.


Sep 26 2018 - Trey Flowers
  DT Trey Flowers practiced Wednesday and the Pats need him desperately to return against the Miami Dolphins. Flowers is the team's best pass rusher and he is a free agent at the end of the year. Flowers, who left the Jacksonville game in the first quarter and has not played since, has shown his value with his absence.


Sep 26 2018 - John Simon
  DE John Simon signed with the Patriots on Wednesday. Simon, 27, is a veteran of five NFL seasons with the Baltimore Ravens (2013), Houston Texans (2014-16) and Indianapolis Colts (2017). The 6-2, 260-pounder was released by Indianapolis on Sept. 1. Simon was a fourth-round draft pick (129th overall) by Baltimore out of Ohio State in 2013. He began his second NFL season on the Baltimore practice squad before being signed to Houston's 53-man roster and was with the Indianapolis Colts last season. In 54 NFL games, Simon has 99 total tackles, 13 sacks, one interception that he returned 26 yards for a touchdown, four passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.


Sep 26 2018 - Kenjon Barner

He has appeared in 44 regular-season games with one start and has 77 carries for 317 yards and three touchdowns, in addition to 21 receptions for 127 yards. He also has experience as a kick returner.


Sep 25 2018 - Stephon Gilmore

Sep 25 2018 - Cordarrelle Patterson
  WR Cordarrelle Patterson's job could be in jeopardy after he had one reception for 12 yards on Sunday. He is being used as a gadget player and fellow wideout Julian Edelman is expected to return from his four-game suspension following Sunday's contest versus the Miami Dolphins.


Sep 25 2018 - Rob Gronkowski
  TE Rob Gronkowski has only six catches over the past two weeks because teams likely are focusing their attention on him wideout Julian Edelman suspended.

Sep 23 2018 - James White
  RB James White scored on a 10-yard touchdown pass from QB Tom Brady in the third quarter. It marked his 14th receiving touchdown since 2015 and second of the 2018 season, the most by a running back in the NFL during that time.

He has appeared in 44 regular-season games with one start and totaled 77 rushing attempts for 317 yards with three touchdowns and 21 receptions for 127 yards.

Sep 18 2018 - Cordarrelle Patterson
