Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Ravens. That leaves Nelson Agholor, DeVante Parker and Kendrick Bourne as New England’s top 3 WRs.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) is not expected to play vs. the Ravens today. He got in just a limited practice on Friday this week, so this isn't a big surprise. Meyers' absence leaves behind 29% of New England's targets over the first 2 games. WR Nelson Agholor becomes a more interesting Week 3 fantasy play with Meyers out. DeVante Parker and Kendrick Bourne figure to operate as the #2 and #3 WRs.

Patriots S Kyle Dugger (knee), S Adrian Phillips (ribs) and CB Jalen Mills (hamstring) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Dugger missed the 1st 2 practices before returning for a limited Friday workout. Phillips put in limited practices all week and played through his injury in Week 2. Mills popped up on the injury report as limited Thursday but made it for another limited workout Friday. We'll check their statuses Sunday morning. DT Davon Godchaux (back) and LB Raekwon McMillan (thumb) are also questionable.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Ravens. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. Meyers played and produced a 9-95 line with this injury last week, but he seems to be in worse shape now. We'll get New England's inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. His availability for this weekend's game vs. the Ravens is now officially in question. Check back tomorrow for another update on Meyer's Week 3 status.

Patriots WR Jakobi Meyers (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He played through this issue last week, although that was after 3 limited practices. We'll see if Meyers is able to get on the field Thursday, ahead of this weekend's game vs. Baltimore.

"I'm fine," Patriots RB Damien Harris told the media after appearing to injure his left knee late in Sunday's win over the Steelers. Just the fact that he was allowed to speak with the media is a good sign that his injury (if there is one) isn't serious. We'll keep an eye on Harris this coming week, but he should be available for Week 3 vs. Ravens.

Patriots RB Damien Harris appeared to injure his left knee late in Sunday's win over the Steelers. He was able to hobble off the field but was in obvious pain. Stay tuned for an update. RB Rhamondre Stevenson would be the obvious beneficiary of Harris' absence.

Patriots LB Ja'Whaun Bentley left Sunday's game with a back injury and is questionable to return. We'll see about the severity. He showed up on the injury report this week with a toe issue but was back to full practice by Friday.

Patriots S Kyle Dugger left in the 1st half of Sunday's game at Pittsburgh with a knee injury. He is questionable to return.

Patriots S Adrian Phillips (ribs) and LB Raekwon McMillan (thumb) are active for today's game against the Steelers. Neither is a high-level IDP play.

Patriots S Adrian Phillips (ribs) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers. He was limited all week in practice. We'll see about his status Sunday morning.

Patriots QB Mac Jones (back, illness) isn’t listed on the final Week 2 injury report. He put in full practices on Wednesday and Friday, missing Thursday’s practice with an illness. Jones should be at least close to 100% for Sunday’s game vs. the Steelers but is just a low-end QB2 in fantasy.

Patriots LB Ja'Whaun Bentley missed Wednesday's practice with a toe injury. We'll watch his participation the rest of the week. If Bentley misses Sunday's game at Pittsburgh, then Raekwon McMillan would presumably lead New England off-ball LBs in playing time.

Patriots QB Mac Jones (back spasms) put in a full practice on Wednesday. He'll be fine for this weekend's game vs. the Steelers but is an unexciting QB2 in a struggling New England offense.

The Patriots placed RB Ty Montgomery on IR. No word yet on the specific injury, but he's out for at least the next 4 games. Montgomery finished 2nd among Patriots RBs in snaps (36%) and tied Damien Harris for the RB lead in routes (31%) in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, finishing with 2 carries and 4 targets. His absence opens up considerable opportunity in the passing game. It's uncertain whether Harris, RB Rhamondre Stevenson or possibly even RB Pierre Strong will capture it.

Patriots QB Mac Jones dealt with back spasms during or after Sunday's loss in Miami, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's relatively good news, although Rapoport adds that Jones has a "chance" to play this week. It sounds like we'll need to keep a close eye on him throughout the week. If Jones is unable to play vs. the Steelers on Sunday, New England would turn to QB Brian Hoyer.

Patriots RBs Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson each got carries on the 1st offensive possession of Sunday's loss to the Dolphins. They finished nearly even -- Harris 9, Stevenson 8 -- but Harris ran more efficiently. He averaged 5.3 yards per rush to Stevenson's 3.1 and added 10 receiving yards on 2 catches among 3 targets. (Stevenson caught both of his targets for just 2 yards.) Ty Montgomery played through his questionable tag and led the backfield with 4 targets but managed just 15 yards on 3 catches and lost 2 yards on his 2 carries. Expect this backfield to remain frustrating for lineup-setting.

Patriots S Adrian Phillips left Sunday's loss to the Dolphins with a rib injury. We'll see about the severity, though don't be surprised if details are lacking. (It's the Patriots.)

The Patriots announced that QB Mac Jones has a back injury. He was not made available to the media after the game and was seen heading for X-rays. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that those came back clean. We'll update Jones' status as soon as we know more. QB Brian Hoyer is New England's backup.
