New England Patriots have placed OT Calvin Anderson (illness) Injured Reserve. Anderson has been out for the past few weeks with an unspecified illness. He also missed all of preseason with an unspecified illness that he said was a very serious situation. It is unknown if the two illnesses are related, but a very concerning situation for Anderson.
WR DeVante Parker was also ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Washington Commanders. As has been well documented, Parker suffered a head injury in last Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins. He has been in concussion protocol since. Parker did not practice this week. His absence should signal a return to the lineup for rookie Kayshon Boutte.
Listed as questionable for tomorrow’s game are: DL Christian Barmore (knee), LB Ja’Whaun Bentley (knee), TE Pharaoh Brown (back), OT Trent Brown (ankle/knee), DT Davon Godchaux (illness), CB Jonathan Jones (knee), OT Vederian Lowe (ankle), WR Tyquan Thornton (foot), LB Josh Uche (ankle/toe), and DE Deatrich Wise (shoulder).

Fun Fact of the Day
From PFN’s Mid-Week Mailbag for fans of tanking:
In the past 25 NFL Drafts, there have been 36 quarterbacks selected with a top five pick. Zero of those players won a Super Bowl with the team that drafted them. Only two (Eli Manning, Drew Stafford) won one elsewhere.
