Tyquan Thornton News
New England Patriots wide receiver Tyquan Thornton (collarbone) was placed on the injured reserve list on Thursday. The 2022 second-round pick recently broke his collarbone and was already forecasted to miss six to eight weeks, so the latest update isn't a surprise.

Jakobi Meyers, DeVante Parker and Nelson Agholor figure to open the year in starting three-receiver sets for New England.

It's a tough break for Thornton, who reportedly had an impressive training camp. The 6-foot-2, 180-pounder isn't physically imposing and could struggle at the next level against bigger, physical cornerbacks, but his speed stands out. The 21-year-old...
