Sunday's loss in Miami was shocking and will likely have the Patriots doing some second-guessing this week.

    The article is nothing but guess work by the writer. The acquisition of Britt seems to limit the possibility that Mitchell will be coming back in time for the postseason.

    Seems like a fairly generic article. Unless we get some news in the next week or so, I think it’s safe to say that he won’t be returning.

    At this point, Mitchell would only have two weeks of full-speed, full contact regular season practices (and, hopefully, a BYE week) before the playoffs start. The odds for his return this season are already extremely low and probably hit zero if he doesn't practice again next week.

    Even if he makes it back to practice I am not sure he will be able to catch up physically and in terms of gameday shape in time.

    He's not coming back. The team will ride Cooks, Gronk, Hogan, Britt, White, Lewis, Burkehead, and Amendola to the end.

    If Gronk gets hurt, Allen needs to step up big.

    Maine, did MM practice last week? It's my understanding (I could be wrong) to be part of practice the player must be designated for return. Other than that he is simply coming to the facility for treatment vs being out there in pads taking some practice hits and taking passes from Brady in practice time speed against Gilmore/Butler/Rowe etc.
    IMHO MM is given designation this coming week or MM's season is officially over. I'd say the lone exception if BB see's MM has been staying in top shape through his rehab, feels he has grown a lot over the off season, and he feels MM could be up to speed with 2 weeks of practice and a game with some limited snaps.

    TBH, with Branch's ankle injury and the signing of Britt, VV is the guy we now seem to need most (not that he is coming back - my guess is he is officially done for the year). Without Branch, Francois will be need to take meaningful snaps.
    Regardless, it's hard for me to see MM making an impact based on time missed and that he had a great SB but otherwise wasn't an impact for many games last season. I have hopes of David Givens type glory for MM but I don't think he was there yet.

    He’s maybe doing agility and conditioning drills on the playing surface. That’s great news.

    Or it highlights the need. Might not be a bad idea to double down if you really think we have a need.

    If he practices, he must be designated. Will be listed on transactions wire first practice day. Either Dorsett or Britt is a potential casualty if he returns.

    Likely Dorsett. The guy didn't even get a damn snap in Miami. I was surprise by that considering hogan looked very rusty.
