The Patriots knocked out receiver / returner Gunner Olzevski in Sunday’s opener against the Dolphins as he continues to deal with a foot problem that costs him some recent practices. He practiced on a limited basis this week, which includes Friday shells and a sweat workout but not 100 percent.
In addition, fellow receiver N’Keel Harry (shoulder) first came on injury report and although he was a full participant in practice, he is doubtful for Sunday.
Not all the news on the injury front was bad, however, with receiver Julian Edelman (knee) and cornerback Stephen Gilmore (hamstring) removed after being previously limited.
Linebackers Chase Vinovich (shoulder) and Cass Malua (knee), and tight end Dalton Keyne (neck) were limited in practice and their position for the opener is questionable.
