The New England Patriots are on their way to win another huge award, and there will be five injured players joining the team for the next season. These five players will head into the training camp regardless of their condition. Their role in the camp will help coaches determine whether they can make the 53-man roster when ends meet.
Malcolm Mitchell hasn’t played with the team since Super Bowl LI. That’s 23 games, and it already sounds terrible.
Mitchell has a knee injury, and that’s something that bothers him in college. The Patriots received him in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
But, Mitchell can do a lot about the team now that Julian Edelman is not here. although he wasn’t playing with the Pats during the spring sessions, Mitchell can be of great assistance during each game.
Jason McCourty was also on the sideline for most practices during the spring program.
“Just being out has been good. I’m just going with the flow of everything happening. So I’m just happy to be here, happy to be a part of this organization moving forward,” McCourty said in June. So, w don’t know if he’s feeling fine or not.
Isaiah Wynn and Trent Brown have a similar story to share. They have shoulder injuries, and are considered key players for the left side of the Pats offensive line.
Wynn was drafted with the 23rd overall pick in 2018. Experts say that Brown and Wynn will compete for the left tackle position. However, they don’t have a real chance of getting the job because of their shoulder injuries.
Kenny Britt is one of the best pass-catchers. At least that what he looked like in the spring practices. However, he has a hamstring injury, and things don’t look to bright for him.
