Patriots TE Jonnu Smith injured his shoulder in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Jets and did not return. We'll look for an update on his status.

As usual, myriad Patriots defenders wound up questionable for today's game against the Jets. LB Dont'a Hightower (elbow, ankle) is inactive. All other questionable defenders are active. They include: DT Davon Godchaux (finger), DE Deatrich Wise (knee), DT Christian Barmore (shoulder), LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (ribs), S Kyle Dugger (knee), CB Jalen Mills (hamstring), S Adrian Phillips (back) and LB Kyle Van Noy (groin).

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson is a healthy scratch for today's game against the Jets. New England is going back to RB J.J. Taylor alongside RBs Damien Harris and Brandon Bolden. Stevenson's absence makes Harris a slightly safer fantasy play.

Patriots CBs Jonathan Jones and Jalen Mills are active for today’s game against the Cowboys. Each guy entered the game questionable

Patriots RB Damien Harris (ribs) is active for today’s game vs. the Cowboys. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and was listed as questionable on the final injury report. Between the rib injury and last week’s goal-line fumble, Harris is a risky fantasy play today. Rookie RB Rhamondre Stevenson could play an expanded role. RB J.J. Taylor is a healthy scratch again today.

"There is optimism" Patriots RB Damien Harris (ribs) plays vs. the Cowboys today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "Not certain yet, but some good feelings," Rapoport adds. Harris got in 2 limited practices this week after being knocked out of last Sunday's win over the Texans. Between the injury and last week's fumble, Harris looks like a risky fantasy option today.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (ribs) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Cowboys. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. Besides the rib injury, Harris also lost a goal-line fumble last week. It all has his Week 6 role a bit uncertain. If Harris doesn't play on Sunday, rookie Rhamondre Stevenson would be the favorite for lead-back duties.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (ribs) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. It gives him a shot to play vs. the Cowboys this weekend. Check back tomorrow for another update on Harris.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (ribs) did not practice on Wednesday. He never re-entered last week's game after hurting his ribs and is seemingly in danger of missing Sunday's game vs. the Cowboys. That'd likely put rookie RB Rhamondre Stevenson in a lead ball-carrying role. We'll get another update on Harris tomorrow.

The chest and rib injuries Patriots RB Damien Harris suffered in the win over the Texans are not significant, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He’s best described as day-to-day," Rapoport adds. We'll keep an eye on Harris' status throughout this week. If he's not able to play vs. the Cowboys on Sunday, it'd likely be rookie RB Rhamondre Stevenson as New England's lead ball carrier.

Patriots RB Damien Harris suffered chest and rib injuries in today's win over the Texans. He returned from the chest but did not return after hurting his ribs in the 4th quarter. We'll look for updates on his status.

Patriots CB Jalen Mills is inactive for today's game against the Texans. LB Ja'Whaun Bentley, LB Kyle Van Noy and S Kyle Dugger are active, after arriving questionable.

The Patriots list LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (shoulder), S Kyle Dugger (hamstring), LB Kyle Van Noy (groin) and CB Jalen Mills (hamstring) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans. Bentley put in limited practices all week but also did so in Week 4 before missing the Sunday night game against Tampa Bay. Van Noy opened the week with no Wednesday practice before 2 limited workouts. Dugger and Mills were limited all week. We'll update the statuses on all 4 Sunday morning.

The Patriots on Wednesday reached a deal with free-agent LB Jamie Collins. That report came immediately after news of New England trading CB Stephon Gilmore to the Panthers, so the 2 sides clearly had already worked out the veteran's return. We'll see just how much playing time awaits Collins in a crowded LB corps. And we'll wait to see that before sticking him into IDP lineups. The secondary, meanwhile, can continue with players in their existing roles now that no Gilmore return from the PUP looms.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson is a healthy scratch for tonight's game against the Bucs -- despite RB James White's absence. That leaves just Damien Harris, Brandon Bolden and J.J. Taylor in New England's backfield.

Patriots LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday night's game against the Buccaneers. S Kyle Dugger (hamstring) and LB Kyle Van Noy (groin) are active, despite entering the day questionable.

Patriots LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (shoulder), LB Kyle Van Noy (groin) and S Kyle Dugger (hamstring) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. All 3 put in limited practices each day this week. Dugger looks most iffy after his injury arose Thursday. The Sunday night kickoff means you probably shouldn't wait for any of them in your IDP lineup.

Patriots RB James White is expected to miss the rest of the season with his hip injury, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It's a significant loss, as White had racked up 13 targets through the first 2 weeks of the season. We're intrigued to see who steps into the all-important pass-catching back role for the Patriots. It was special-teamer Brandon Bolden after White exited last week.

Patriots WR N'Keal Harry (shoulder) has been activated from IR and practiced on Wednesday. The former 1st-round pick was reportedly having a strong camp before going down. We'll see how big a role he can earn for himself, but Harry remains off the fantasy radar for now.

The Lions have released LB Jamie Collins. The team tried to trade him, but teams were likely scared off by the big contract. The veteran will now be free to sign with whomever, and will likely find a suitor. We'll see if he can recapture IDP value.
