2018 Patriots roster cuts: New England releases former second-round pick Cyrus Jones The New England Patriots have a rather deep cornerback group behind roster locks Stephon Gilmore Womens Cordarrelle Patterson Jersey
, Eric Rowe and second-round draft pick Duke Dawson. A pair of rookies are the reason for that: both J.C. Jackson and Keion Crossen have looked good over the course of the summer and have legitimate shots at making the team – at the expense of a once highly-drafted cornerback.According to The Athletic’s Jeff Howe, New England has parted ways with Cyrus Jones:Cyrus Jones was selected with the 60th pick of the 2016 NFL draft, but failed to make a positive impact early on during his career. He struggled as a punt and kickoff returner and failed to establish himself as a member of the Patriots’ cornerback rotation as well. Jones looked better during the 2017 preseason but tore his ACL and was subsequently placed on season-ending injured reserve.He tried a comeback this year http://www.thepatriotsfootballauthentic.com/kyle-van-noy-jersey-authentic
, but started training camp on the physically unable to perform list. While he did come off the list and appeared in New England’s final two preseason contests as both a cornerback and punt returner, Jones apparently was unable to beat out the other options at the positions.And while could still stay in New England via the practice squad, his status as a former second-round draft pick could lead to teams trying to claim him on the waiver wire.

, but the Patriots won’t have right tackle Marcus Cannon available to go against him or anyone else on the Chicago defense.Cannon has been ruled out of Sunday’s game because of a concussion he suffered against the Chiefs last weekend. LaAdrian Waddle stepped in for Cannon against Kansas City and seems likely to get the start against Chicago.Cannon is the only player who has been ruled out for the Patriots this week, but, as usual Youth Stephen Gostkowski Jersey
, they have a sizable contingent of players listed as questionable. Ten players fell into that category on the injury report.One of them is tight end Rob Gronkowski, which isn’t new as he’s been dealing with an ankle injury for several weeks. What is new (or a reminder of past ailments) is being listed with a back injury as well. Gronkowski was limited in Friday’s practice.
