We already knew about Alfonzo Dennard, Nick McDonald and Shane Vereen, who were knocked out by injury. And now we know who else won't be playing Sunday for the Patriots against the Titans.
DE Jake Bequette, TE Daniel Fells, DL Marcus Fortson and DE Justin Francis were added to the inactive list Sunday morning, putting them out of New England's season opener.
Mike Giardi and Mike Felger discuss Scott Zolak saying that Dion Lewis is trade bait, and discuss which Patriots players are here for the long term.
Andrew Hawkins' situation isn't far off from a character in HBO's "Ballers." And he played into those connections with a video on Twitter.
The slot receiver, who signed with the Patriots on Wednesday, shares some similarities with the fictional football player Rickey Jerret, a veteran receiver who wades through interest from a number of teams, including New England, during free agency. Because of those similarities, Hawkins spoofed on a scene from "Ballers" where Jerret works out with Patriots receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. Hawkins imposes his face over Jerret's.
