A New England Patriots spokesperson apologized Monday, a day after the team charged fans at least $4.50 for tap water at Gillette Stadium.
With the temperature hitting an unseasonably high 86 degrees in Foxborough, Massachusetts, the team doubled its inventory of water bottles for Sunday’s game, the Boston Globe reported. That was almost four times the inventory for an average game.
Danny Amendola, concussion/knee, Chris Hogan, knee, Phillip Dorsett, knee, New England Patriots, (Q): After missing Week 2 with two different injuries, Amendola returned to daily limited practice sessions this week and is expected to play. Fellow receivers Dorsett and Hogan were both working through knee issues this week, but they too were daily participants in practice.
Hogan was effective in Week 2, even after the initial injury (a contusion following a hit) began to affect his mobility. The challenge here is trying to guess just how involved each of these receivers will be in Week 3, especially given the heavy utilization of running back James White in the passing game in Week 2 and the expected availability of tight end Rob Gronkowski.
Jarvis Landry, knee, and DeVante Parker, ankle, Miami Dolphins, (Q): Landry played last week despite being listed as questionable as a late addition to the injury report. His presence this week comes as no surprise, as the Dolphins rested him Wednesday. He returned to limited practice Thursday and was upgraded to full on Friday. Parker is on the report this week with an ankle injury that kept him out of practice entirely on Thursday. The good news is that he was listed as a full participant Friday. It would appear that both of these players are on the “likely to play side” of questionable, given their increased practice status Friday. Nonetheless, fantasy owners will want to pay close attention to pregame active/inactive reports.
