Patriots place OT Trent Brown on injured reserve

  Patriots place OT Trent Brown on injured reserve Since his first stint with the Patriots ended, Brown has been unable to stay healthy. He did make the 2019 Pro Bowl, becoming the rare right tackle invitee that year, but played in just 11 games. Last year, a calf injury in Week 1 sidelined him before multiple stints on the Raiders’ reserve/COVID-19 list wrecked his season.The Patriots reacquired Brown for a Day 3 pick but have not been able to deploy him much. As part of a redone contract, Brown is signed only through the end of this season.

When Washington quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick suffered a hip injury in Week One, he was expected to miss six to eight weeks. That now appears overly optimistic.

It’s already been six weeks, and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Fitzpatrick is still weeks away from returning.

Fitzpatrick won’t play today or next week against the Broncos. After that Washington is on its bye, and the earliest Fitzpatrick might return would be Week 10 against the Buccaneers.

But even that may be overly optimistic: Rapoport reports that while everyone is “hopeful” Fitzpatrick will return this season, it is not a certainty that he makes it back onto the field at all.

Robert Saleh tries to temper expectations for Zach Wilson

  Robert Saleh tries to temper expectations for Zach Wilson The New York Jets have made Zach Wilson their latest franchise quarterback, but head coach Robert Saleh is warning that fans shouldn’t expect a savior right away. © Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Wilson had what was described as an “uneven” practice performance on Monday, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. He held onto the ball too long during 7-on-7 drills and finished the day with a number of incompletions. That came as no big concern to Saleh, who told Pelissero that it was not unusual for a rookie to struggle like that. “There’s a reason why being a rookie is hard in this league,” Saleh said.

Taylor Heinicke is the starter in Fitzpatrick’s absence. It’s unknown whether Fitzpatrick will get the job back if healthy, and now it’s fair to ask whether Washington coach Ron rivera will even have to make that decision.
