Patriots signing Caleb Benenoch with Isaiah Wynn week-to-week

The Patriots played without right tackle Marcus Cannon on Sunday and they had left tackle Isaiah Wynn leave the win over the Dolphins with a toe injury, so they’re thinner than they’d like to be on the offensive line heading into Week Three.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that they are addressing that by adding a player to the group. Rapoport reports that they are signing former Buccaneers lineman Caleb Benenoch.

Benenoch, who worked out for the Patriots recently, started every game of the 2018 season at right guard for Tampa and also has experience at tackle. The 2016 fifth-round pick was released by the Buccaneers last week.

Wynn went for an MRI on Monday and Rapoport reports that he’s considered week-to-week, so the Pats may be without both of their starting tackles against the Jets this week.

  1. The tackle position has not been kind to the Pats this year. Retirements, injuries to starters backups and draft picks,and trades for players that Scar quickly sent packing.
    A very short time ago, it looked like one of the strongest and deepest o-lines in the league.

  2. So deep everywhere except the O-line….Andrews has started a domino effect & it makes me very nervous we got a makeshift line protecting our 42 YO QB…. Scar is an amazing coach but I’m not sure even HE can work that much magic!!!
    Time to get that RUN GAME really going!!!!!
    Go Pats!!

  3. The OL is their Achilles heel. Dante can only do so much, and there’s not much cap left to bring in someone good. Brady has such a quick release that it may be less of an issue in the passing game, but play-action is such a big part of their offense. They need to be able to run it like they did at the end of the season last year. I’m worried that they may only win 13 games this year……

  4. Come on now everyone knows the Patriots aren’t allowed to replace injured players it’s just not fair to the rest of the league. Especially when they bring in guys that have washed out elsewhere only to turn them into great players here. When the Pats lose a guy they should be forced to play without a replacement until it’s just Brady hiking the ball to himself and throwing to Bill, but the problem is Bill would still find a way to win the game, and the haters would then be forced to continue to cry and whine about how unfair things are.

  5. Cannon started practicing last week so he should be fine. Good to hear about Wynn though. Decent signing by the Patriots. When both Wynn and Cannon are healthy the depth players will already have in game experience.

  6. the empty talking head comments have already started about their “easy schedule”. there are 8 undefeated teams left, the pats play 5 games against them plus eagles and the super bowl bound cleveland browns. la rams?, packers?, vikings? well they wiped them all up last year. the fact is they play the hardest schedule every year because they’re the only team noboby looks past.

  7. Looks like wynn and cannon were fortunate with their injuries so they will find a way to hold the fort till they can get back.

    Umm, it still is. David Andrews is a tough flight center, but Karras has looked great. A rock so far.

    Thuney is superb, as is Mason. Mason had a bad play on Sunday, however.

    Brady had all day to throw vs Miami and will continue to do so. A couple of minor injuries with the schedule the way it is now, has no bearing on the future of the best OL in the conference.

    I was stunned how good Newhouse and Cunninghame looked considering they just arrived and wouldn’t even know the plays yet.

    Newhouse didn’t fare as well, but to go from not playing to RT, then to LT in that heat? Pretty impressive.

    I am relieved it’s just turf toe. Just keep him out for as long as needed, as Cannon should be back very soon here.

    The Jets have an awful defense led by Leonard Williams up front, a complete bust at #5 overall. I’ve never seen him make a play. Ever.

    It is? When did this happen? Karras has looked very good in place of Andrews and I am big Andrews guy.

    How do you have the best OL in the conference and it be an “achilles heel”?

    Why so defensive about the easy schedule? It’s not the Pats fault yet you really stressed yourself out to come up with the BS about looking past somebody. You have a very vivid imagination.

    Pats need to be wary of the danger to the old man tossing the rock……karma

  12. If I were NE, I would play it conservatively with both Wynn and Cannon. They don’t need them for the Jets. The schedule is pretty favorable until the five game stretch starting at week nine with Baltimore. Maybe that will give Scar enough time to get the new guys more up to speed.

  13. Patriots had 3 starters out of the game and won. Brady barely got touched. Team rushing was over 100 yds.

    Haters teams lose 1 starter.. We have no line.If such and such were playing we would have won. We have no depth. Blah blah blah.

    Agreed. They can do just fine vs NY with the backups at Tackle. And, it’s also good on the job training.

    Scar and BB don’t just throw darts at a wall when acquiring particular OL talent. This is not ideal, but Cannon and Wynn will be back in the fold as part of the best line in the conference.

  16. “Patriots had 3 starters out of the game and won”

    Actually 4 once Wynn was injured. But lets be real, that was against a team with a bad Dline, bad LBs and a bad secondary. Not going to be so easy against better teams if the Oline injuries continue.

    Their D line is not that bad, actually. Jenkins and Carradine are certainly solid players. It’s better than the Jets’ line.

    That’s what I mean. Take away another team’s 4 starters and their entire offense goes to crap. The fact two new Tackles stepped right in there and didn’t look lost is a good sign. It’s a lot to take on.

  19. The Olinemen that had to fill in for the Patriots weren’t even on the team that long and played good. Give Scar five minutes and he can improve your teams line. The Seahawks survived while the Patriots thrived.In both games, they tried to attack a weakened line and in both games they failed. Blueprint theory.. Yeah that works.

  20. O-Line and QB have to be the only positional groups where you have a backup that is and should be better than anybody on the street, but teams dread to have actually start.

    Maaaybe add DB to the grouping?

    Actually, the Jets defense had sparks of life last night. Not sure that the offense can do anything tho.

  22. “Actually, the Jets defense had sparks of life last night. Not sure that the offense can do anything tho”

    Falk looked like a 3rd string QB whose not had very many reps and was tossed to the wolves. Maybe with a week of practice as starter he’ll be better.

    If not its gonna be a long long day for the Jets given how the Pats D has been playing.

  23. Don’t worry your teams season may be over but you will still have the Patriots articles to cry on

    Psssssd … “karma” is not real.

    Karma is real ….how else do you explain your miserable outlook on life? As to the Steelers being blown out….big deal. I have been watching the NFL for 60 years and we have won Lombardis with three different coaches so its like sand thr an hour glass unlike you its the nut in the avocado. Patience grasshopper in the grand scheme of things its one game and one game closer to Brady retiring…..then you wont be heard from again.
