Patriots rule out Marcus Cannon, Keion Crossen

The Patriots downgraded starting right tackle Marcus Cannon and reserve cornerback Keion Crossen, ruling both out for Sunday’s game. Cannon, who has a calf injury, and Crossen, who has a hamstring injury, did not make the trip.

But running backs Rex Burkhead and Sony Michel are with the team. Burkhead has a concussion and Michel a knee issue.

The Patriots listed all four players — Crossen, Cannon, Burkhead and Michel — as questionable in their Friday status report.

Michel was inactive last week as was Crossen.

With Jeremy Hill out for the season with a torn ACL, the Patriots could use Michel and Burkhead. Burkhead led the Patriots in rushing last week against Houston with 18 carries for 64 yards.

  1. Seems like should have had a good backup plan for Cannon. Good player but lately getting hurt quite often.Excited about Sony making the trip. If Sony Plays plz hold ball high and Tight, especially making debut vs a tough Jags Defense. Goo Pats good luck Sony if get a chance.

  2. This team is softer then an ice cream cone in the desert! The injury excuses will be in full bloom by October like last year when all they lost was that fat slob Hightower yet claimed that left the team “plagued by the loss of starters” due to injury. We lol at NE!

  3. I love the way the Pats turn the bottom of the roster, they don’t just pick up a replacement, they fill specific needs and keep turning based on performance and the next game.

    Hill was a very good addition but the Patriots go deep at every position. After all the injuries and losing Bolden they will still have the running back position covered. No one talks about Devlin but he will be important given all the injuries.

    If you are going to troll, try not to overlook facts that can be easily googled. Maybe you heard of a fellow named Julian Edelman who tore his ACL and missed the season. Yes the same Edelman that had 98 catches the year before. And you have never heard anyone in that organization give an injury excuse. Now mama’s calling, turn the tv down.

  5. Cannon was in and out last week and Waddle did pretty well against a pretty tough Houston front line. Pats will need their running backs to help Brady unload quickly against a very good Jags defense so let’s hope Michel is a quick study sine he did really get much experience in the pre-season.

  6. Last year the Jags lost, period. That was with Bortles playing a very good game. In Tom Brady’s world that level would be mediocre, but for Bortles it was the game of his life. Remember, until he had that one decent game the Jags were getting ready to toss him. Which Bortles do you think is going to show up?

  7. Man, it’s so early in the year to be dealing with all these guys getting hurt…..preseason & week 1 has not been kind….
    No, I’m not making excuses, just stating facts… hopefully depth will allow the next man up to excell & help carry the team until HOPEFULLY we can reactivate a couple key guys off IR
    Go Pats!!!!

  8. Maybe they ought to practice tackling in the off season. Get the injuries over with before the games count.

  9. Always more concern with O-line than RBs. Hard to pass when you’re on your back or run if there’s no hole. Should be another nail biter. Still, better than that year NE was up 21 in the 4th almost every week.
