Authentic Womens Antonio Garcia Jersey

The Patriots have lost a number of players in key positions, but can still activate a player off injured reserve to rejoin the team for the remainder of the season.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, “the only one who could potentially come back is Malcolm Mitchell.”

The team already used the first of its two “designations to return” on outside linebacker Shea McClellin, who started the season on IR with a concussion. McClellin returned to practice in October but was ruled out for season a few weeks later.
“He had a setback and was unable to return off IR,” Rapoport told Boston.com. “But because he started practicing, that burnt one of one their spots. The only other spot, to my understanding, would potentially be for Mitchell, and I don’t believe they’ve given up hope of that yet.”

Mitchell, who has yet to play a snap this season, was a limited participant for a week of practice before getting placed on IR with a knee issue. As a rookie, the 24-year-old caught 32 passes for 401 yards and four touchdowns last season.

Head coach Bill Belichick has not provided a firm indication of Mitchell’s status, but the wide receiver shared an Instagram with the caption, “Missing that feeling. I’m working. I’m coming,” at the end of November.
After Julian Edelman went down with a season-ending ACL tear during preseason, the injuries just kept coming for the Patriots.

At 10-3, the defending Super Bowl champions can clinch their ninth straight AFC East title by defeating the Steelers Sunday. A win would also put the Patriots in a better position to clinch home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.

New England’s IR includes: Martellus Bennett, Marcus Cannon, Keionta Davis, Nate Ebner, Julian Edelman, Antonio Garcia, Dont’a Hightower, Andrew Jelks, Cyrus Jones, Harvey Langi, Shea McClellin, Malcolm Mitchell, Derek Rivers, and Vincent Valentine.

Cheap Womens New England Patriots Malcolm Butler Jersey 2018

Malcolm Butler has his swagger back. Not convinced? Ask the cornerback.

“Oh, I’m back,” Butler told Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald. “You believe that.”

After a tumultuous start to the year where Butler seemed lost at times and even looked like he may be leapfrogged by Eric Rowe, he’s turned it around nicely and comes out of the bye week similar to his team as a whole: hot.

While he understands that he hasn’t been completely perfect, it does seem like he believes his worst games are behind him this season. As Howe notes, Butler has allowed 11 catches on 25 targets over the last four games that went for 195 yards and three touchdowns. He’s also had four pass breakups and an interception in that time.

One of those touchdown grabs came courtesy of Julio Jones which really should be qualified as a “nothing you can do about that one” type of catch. The most recent score he let up was a 24-yarder to Travis Benjamin just prior to the bye, but Howe points out that it was his only really blemish in the game.

“It happens to all of us, which we don’t want to happen,” Butler said of the TD. “It’s just how the game goes. Just got to keep going forward. You can’t make other plays if you’re still thinking about that play in the past.”

He added: “Those guys get paid, too. You still don’t want to give up something that you could have avoided or done better. We could all do better and all have plays that we wish we could have back, but I’ve just got to keep moving, man. Take your L like you take your W’s.”

Seeing Butler exude as much confidence as he’s doing should spell great things for a New England secondary that not only has this corner getting hot, but also is poised to see the return of both Stephon Gilmore and Eric Rowe at some point in the near future and could even be this Sunday in Denver.

If they can get all three corners clicking on all cylinders, then the Patriots should be one tough defense to throw against.
