The New England Patriots won’t stop changing their roster, and some of the changes were more than expected. New England made some big roster moves Saturday. Several players ended up on injured reserve. The team has provided a status on Devin Asiasi and his status for the upcoming game vs the Arizona Cardinals.
The Patriots plan to place Rex Burkhead, Isaiah Wynn, and Carl Davis on injured reserve. Rookie offensive lineman Justin Herron will come off as confirmed by Jeff Howe from The Athletic.
According to Howe’s report, rookie Devin Asiasi will stay on injured reserve for at least a week.
Devin Asiasi to miss the game vs Arizona Cardinals
Herron has been on the Patriots’ injured reserve since Nov. 1 due to the ankle injury he suffered in the Patriots loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
The Patriots put Asiasi on injured reserve on Nov. 3 due to an undisclosed injury. We don’t have any information regarding his ailment, but we do know that he didn’t show up for Wednesday’s practice.
Wynn suffered a knee injury in the loss to Houston. He didn’t practice with the Patriots, and he has already been ruled out for Week 12. Reports confirm that veteran Jermaine Eluemunor and rookie Justin Herron are expected to replace Wynn at left tackle against Arizona. The Patriots may push left guard Joe Thuney or right tackle Mike Onwenu to the position.
ESPN’s Field Yates was among the first to report on Burkhead’s spot on injured reserve. Burkhead suffered his injury in the third quarter of the match against Houston. He took to social media to confirm that his injury will keep him on the sidelines for a long time. Burkhead won’t join the team this season. Sony Michel missed seven games due to his quad injury and he will probably join the team on Sunday. He may also replace Burkhead.
New England deals with a lot of injury at the moment, and this problem has plagued the team throughout the entire season. The Patriots don’t really have a chance to make the playoffs this season. Is head coach Bill Belichick fine with this?
