Patriots missing just one player from Friday's practice

Patriots missing just one player from Friday's practice

Is it a coincidence that New England signed Will Tye the week the Patriots travel to NY for a battle with the Jets?

"I'm good. I'm not anxious about it", Brady said Wednesday.

A third-year player out of Stony Brook, he has more experience and production than most practice-squad players. "Whatever the coaches call or whatever plays they have me in I'll be ready to roll".

Gronk suffered his thigh injury in the Patriots' Week 4 loss to the Panthers when he was leg whipped.

Gronkowski, who was a surprise scratch ahead of last Thursday's win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a thigh injury, confirmed on Friday that he'll be playing on Sunday against the Jets. Tye has 94 receptions for 987 yards and four touchdown passes. "Unfortunately, it was a quick turnaround game Thursday night and I just wasn't ready to roll".

The Patriots, with extra rest following the Thursday matchup in Week 5, will play on road against the Jets, who enter the AFC East clash riding a three-game winning streak. "There was no chance that I could've went but it is what it is. Whatever coaches call, I'll be ready".
