Patriots MLB Dont'a Hightower (knee) is recovering from a "slight tear" in his meniscus.
Per beat writer Jeff Howe, Hightower is "making good progress" and is questionable for Week 4 against the Bills after missing the past two games.
Jacoby Brissett (thumb) is practicing on Wednesday.
He and Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) split the first-team reps, and both threw passes. Expect the Patriots to try and get Garoppolo ready for the Bills.
Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) and Jacoby Brissett (thumb) both practiced on Wednesday.
Garoppolo reportedly is "still in pain and doesn't yet have full mobility" in his throwing shoulder, but he didn't look any worse for the wear while throwing at Wednesday's practice. He and Brissett split the first-team reps. Don't expect gamesman coach Bill Belichick to name a starter until the end of the week.
DeSean Jackson (ankle) is not practicing on Wednesday.
Jackson went into Week 3 with an ankle ailment, but he played through it and ran right by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for a 44-yard touchdown. He appeared to re-tweak the ankle but quickly returned. At this point, we'd expect Jackson to play Sunday against the Browns. Check back Thursday.
Josh Doctson (Achilles') is not practicing Wednesday.
It's a setback for Doctson after he got in a round of limited practices last week. He reportedly didn't feel right in Week 3 warmups and was inactive. Rashad Ross and Ryan Grant have been filling in as the Nos. 4 and 5 receivers.
Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday.
Sanu went through the walkthrough, but didn't do much else. He's day to day.
Charcandrick West (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.
Spencer Ware badly out-snapped West 45-15 last week against the Jets, and this may be part of the reason. If West sits Week 4 against the Steelers and Jamaal Charles (knee) isn't ready, Ware could have a massive workload.
Coach John Harbaugh expressed disappointment in the Ravens' running game and said he's looking at potential changes in the backfield.
"More than changes," Harbaugh said. "It's about seeking to improve." Justin Forsett has been dreadful with just 98 scoreless yards on 31 attempts (3.2 YPC) as the "starter." Terrance West hasn't been much better with 119 scoreless yards on 33 carries (3.6 YPC), but he recorded the Ravens' longest run of the young season last week, a 15-yarder to open the third quarter. Rookie Kenneth Dixon (knee) is nearing a return and will likely be given a shot to handle a chunk of the load.
