The New England Patriots have revealed Trent Brown’s status for Sunday’s game against the Jets. The Patriots are going into week two determined to get back on track after a disappointing loss to start the season. The Miami Dolphins beat the Patriots by one point in their first game of the season. The Patriots started their rookie QB Mac Jones who had an average showing against the Dolphins.
But there were also some questions surrounding Trent Brown and his status going into week 2.
It was announced today by the Patriots that Brown will miss game two against the Jets due to a right calf injury. Brown only played 7 snaps against Miami, injuring his calf in the first series. This is a pretty big loss for the Patriots who looked strong on defense.
Yasir Durant will likely be the fill in for Brown after he was acquired by Kansas City on August 31st. Durant looked pretty strong against Miami as the third string. It will be interesting to see how he does against a poor Jets team. The Patriots should be able to pull off the win.

Belichick recently had some good things to say about Brown.
“I think Trent’s experience has given him a much higher level of leadership, communication,” Belichick said. “He’s just able to do more both on and off the field. Has a lot more experience. Has more experience in our system, which is a big factor. He didn’t have that in 2018 and we haven’t changed things a lot.”
“I think he’s comfortable with all the communication and techniques and adjustments and so forth,” continued Belichick. “That wasn’t the case the beginning of 2018, nor would you expect it to be for any player that’s new to our program. He’s way ahead of where he was, and that maturity and experience has manifested itself in positive leadership and I would say insight for other players. He’s been with three organizations. And again, he has some good perspective on a lot of things, especially the New England Patriots.”
