Will the Patriots get enough reinforcements for a do-or-die game at Las Vegas? – Boston Herald


TUCSON, Ariz. — After three weeks, Trent Brown said he’s finally won his battle with the flu.

But in the process, the Patriots’ mammoth left tackle lost his form, surrendering multiple pressures and taking penalties in games against the Bills and Cardinals. He also claimed to have lost 12 pounds. And as an ill Brown thinned, so did the team’s roster.

Four players, including three starters lost to injury Monday night against the Cardinals — running back Rhamondre Stevenson, wide receiver DeVante Parker and cornerback Jack Jones — did not participate in Wednesday’s practice at the University of Arizona. The other was offensive tackle Isaiah Wynn, who hasn’t played in four weeks with a foot injury.

Stevenson is reportedly hopeful to play Sunday at Las Vegas, where it would be an upset if Parker suits up after suffering a concussion. Jones told the Herald he would be “all right,” despite the knee bruise he suffered in Arizona. As for Josh McDaniels’ Raiders, they returned Pro Bowl weapons Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow to practice Wednesday, and are plenty rested after a Thursday night game last week.

The good news for the Patriots? Reinforcements are on the way.
