WR Josh Boyce and CB Jimmy Jean missed practice yesterday, the new additions to the Patriots Did Not Practice list. It is unknown why they did not suit up.
WR Brandon LaFell, CB Darryl Roberts, LB Dane Fletcher, OL Marcus Cannon, OL Chris Barker, OL Bryan Stork, DL Chris Jones, DL Joe Vellano, TE Jake Bequette also did not practice.
The fear for Roberts is he has suffered a serious wrist injury that may sideline him for the season, according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss and Adam Caplan. Roberts was having a great rookie camp and preseason, before being injured in the preseason opener against Green Bay. If he misses the season, that will be a bit of a blow to New England, as he would have made an excellent backup or maybe contended for the starting role.
