The Patriots on Saturday downgraded S Kyle Dugger (ankle) to out for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Patriots S Kyle Dugger (ankle), S Adrian Phillips (shoulder) and CB Jonathan Jones (ankle) are questionable vs. the Jets. Dugger looks like the poorest bet among them after managing just a single limited practice Friday. The other 2 put in limited work every day this week. New England ruled DT Christian Barmore (knee) out for the game.

Patriots S Kyle Dugger (knee) and CB Jalen Mills (hamstring) are active for today's game against the Lions.

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 DB Kyle Dugger did not start in Friday night's simulated intrasquad scrimmage. NESN reports that he rotated in with slot CB Jonathan Jones on the "blue" team, which featured 1st-stringers. It's obviously early in the process, but this doesn't seem good for the playing time of the 3rd-year player. Dugger spent most of last season playing near full time. He came in short of 75% playing time just twice across the 1st 12 games, exceeding 80% 6 times. But his final 3 regular-season outings checked in at just 56%, 63% and 51%. Dugger rebounded to 83% in the playoff loss at Buffalo. If he continues to be more of a sub-package player through the preseason, Dugger might be hard pressed to reach 70% playing time consistently without injury to a teammate. That, in turn, would make it tough for him to deliver regularly useful fantasy points. We've knocked Dugger way down the IDP rankings for now.
