Patriots LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (shoulder) and DE Lawrence Guy (shoulder) are inactive for tonight's game against the Bills. Questionable defenders CB Jonathan Jones (neck), CB J.C. Jackson (knee), DE John Simon (hamstring) and DT Adam Butler (shoulder) are active.
Patriots DE Lawrence Guy, DT Adam Butler, CB J.C. Jackson and CB Jonathan Jones are all active vs. Miami after entering the day questionable. None is a strong IDP option, but all are available in case you play in a deep league.
Patriots DE Shilique Calhoun, CB J.C. Jackson, DE John Simon and DE Deatrich Wise are active for tonight's game against the Jets. New England previously downgraded CB Stephon Gilmore, DE Lawrence Guy and LB Ja'Whaun Bentley to out for the game.
The Patriots list a bunch of defensive players as questionable for Monday night's game against the Jets. That includes DE Lawrence Guy (shoulder, elbow, knee), CB Stephon Gilmore (knee), DE Shilique Calhoun (knee), LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (groin), DE Deatrich Wise (knee, hand), CB J.C. Jackson (knee) and DE John Simon (elbow). None of those guys is a high-level IDP option, so they're likely not worth waiting on in setting your fantasy lineup. But we'll see who's in and who's out Monday evening.
Patriots CBs Stephon Gilmore and J.C. Jackson are both questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills after suffering knee injuries during the practice week. Gilmore's injury happened Thursday. An MRI came back negative, but he sat out Friday's practice. Jackson left Friday's workout early with his ailment after not showing up on the injury report the previous 2 days. Missing either or both would obviously hurt an already struggling defense and improve the matchup for Buffalo WRs Stefon Diggs and/or John Brown -- as well as QB Josh Allen. DE John Simon is also questionable with a shoulder issue that limited him in practice all week.
