Malcolm Mitchell Out For Divisional Playoffs vs TitansWinslow Townson - USA TODAY Sports

On Friday, the deadline to place New England Patriots wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell on the 53-man roster came and went at 4pm with no move being made. Mitchell will not play against the Tennessee Titans.

After a strong rookie season that saw him contribute in the Super Bowl comeback, Mitchell has been dealing with a knee injury that has kept him on injured reserve since September 7th.

Mitchell was spotted practicing with the team on Thursday and has been active on social media over the past few weeks indicating his attempts at coming back.

According to NESN’s Doug Kyed, should the Patriots advance to the next round, the team will have one more opportunity to activate Mitchell at 4pm on Wednesday, otherwise he will be ineligible for the remainder of the playoffs.

As for the current depth chart at wide receiver, there is some good news as Chris Hogan is expected to return for the first time after missing seven of the teams last eight games with a shoulder injury. Heading into Saturday night, the Patriots will have Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola, Phillip Dorsett and Kenny Britt available for quarterback Tom Brady.
