Injury Report: Josh Uche a Non-Participant in Thursday's Patriots Practice

Devon Clements

Thursday's New England Patriots injury report has some good and bad news on it. 

The good news is that cornerback Jonathan Jones (foot) and rookie linebacker Cassh Maluia (knee) have been removed from the report. The bad news is that rookie linebacker Josh Uche (ankle) has been added to the report after not participating in Thursday's practice. 

Defensive tackle Adam Butler (shoulder), linebacker Brandon Copeland (knee), and  wideouts Julian Edelman (knee) and N'Keal Harry (shoulder) were limited during practice. Dalton Keene (neck) was a full participant in practice for the second straight day. 

Last Sunday, Uche was surprisingly inactive for New England's game against the Miami Dolphins. While his new injury is probably not linked to what happened over the weekend, it does put the 2020 second-round pick in jeopardy of prolonging his regular season debut once again. 

If Uche wants a chance of playing this Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, he needs to be a participant in practice in some manner Friday.

Uche might be someone who could find success against this offense too.

I agree here. They need all the defensive power they can get against Wilson and the powerhouse of an offense that is Seattle.

Call me crazy, but I don't think they need Uche in Week 2. Max, remember when you wrote that piece during the offseason about New England utilizing 3 safeties? They could do that against Seattle as well. They have several pass catching weapons, which will require some DB depth in order to shut those players down.
