Patriots' Rex Burkhead: Limited at practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burkhead (ribs) was limited at practice Wednesday.

Burkhead's potential return to action Sunday against the Falcons would boost to the Patriots' backfield depth, but he's behind both James White, the team's primary pass-catching back, and Mike Gillislee, the team's top power back in the team's RB pecking order. Moreover, Dion Lewis is decidedly in the mix as well, a reality that limits Burkhead's fantasy upside, so long as his fellow ballcarriers remain healthy.

Patriots' Chris Hogan: Limited at practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hogan (ribs) was limited at practice Wednesday.

Hogan took a shot to the ribs in the second quarter of Week 6's win over the Jets, per Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, but the wideout still ended up logging 63 out of a possible 68 snaps on offense in the contest. We fully expect Hogan to be a go Sunday night against the Falcons, though the Patriots could well end up listing him as questionable on Friday's final Week 7 injury report.

Patriots' Shea McClellin: Debuts at practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McClellin (undisclosed) returned to practice Wednesday, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

McClellin hadn't practiced since suffering a still-undisclosed injury during the opening days of training camp. The Patriots now have a three-week window to activate McClellin to the 53-man roster or place him on season-ending injured reserve.

Patriots' Stephon Gilmore: No practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilmore (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

Gilmore has been dealing with concussion symptoms since Week 5 and wasn't available for last Sunday's matchup with the Jets. Since he didn't practice Wednesday, the veteran corner evidently still has to clear a few phases of the concussion protocol in order to suit up for the Super Bowl LI rematch with the Falcons on Sunday.

Patriots' Malcolm Mitchell: No return in sight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mitchell (knee) is "not close" to being in consideration for returning to practice, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

The initial thought was that Mitchell could be one of the two players activated from the Patriots' injured reserve list after sustaining the knee injury shortly before the team's Week 1 contest, but it seems his recovery isn't going as quickly as planned. Since the Patriots -- who have been struggling defensively throughout the season -- have other options to activate from IR in the form of defensive tackle Vincent Valentine (knee) and linebacker Shea McClellin (undisclosed), it's possible Mitchell might not return at any point this season.
