New England Patriots right tackle Marcus Cannon (concussion) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 7 against the Bears. Quarterback Tom Brady's protection won't be as good as usual against a strong Chicago pass rush, although All-Pro defensive end Khalil Mack (ankle) is questionable and was slowed by his injury last week. Still, it's something to keep an eye on for this Sunday. If New England's offensive line is struggling, expect the Patriots to get the ball out quickly, which would favor receiver Julian Edelman and running back James White.
New England Patriots right tackle Marcus Cannon (calf) and defensive back Keion Crossen (hamstring) have both been ruled out for Week 2 against the Jaguars. It's bad news for a Patriots team already dealing with injuries to running backs Rex Burkhead (concussion) and Sony Michel (knee). The Patriots figure to do a lot of short dump-off passes to running back James White in this one.
New England Patriots right tackle Marcus Cannon (calf) will take an impressive improvement in order to play through a calf injury in Week 2 against the Jaguars, according to a source. The team is preparing LaAdrian Waddle to play this week if Cannon can't suit up. If Cannon doesn't play on Sunday, it'll be a downgrade to New England's backfield. Running backs Rex Burkhead (concussion) and rookie Sony Michel (knee) are also questionable, so James White could be heavily involved. He'll be a sleeper flex play in PPR leagues.
