Suspended WR Brian Tyms had three catches for 29 yards and a touchdown in Friday night's preseason game against the Eagles.

He was targeted a team-high seven times. Tyms continued his strong start to the preseason and now has eight catches, 148 yards, and two touchdowns through two games.

Patriots WR Brian Tyms is suspended for the first four games of the season.

Tyms was suspended back in May, but this flew under the radar because he's obviously not a big name. He reportedly tested positive for Adderall. Tyms had a huge preseason opener, going off for a 5/119/1 line against Washington. This could actually work in his favor, as the Patriots won't have to use a roster spot to keep him. Tyms is eligible to return in Week 5.
Aug 8 - 7:26 PM

Patriots WR Brian Tyms caught five passes for 119 yards and a touchdown in New England's preseason opener against the Redskins.

Tyms was a juggled ball away from a 6/157/2 evening. It was an impressive performance, granted one that came against second- and third-team defenders. Tyms struck up an immediate connection with No. 2/3 QB Jimmy Garoppolo, catching a 26-yard dime with time running out for the Pats' only score. Although he's been generating hype all camp, Tyms is facing long odds of cracking the Pats' crowded receiver corps. He's essentially auditioning for other teams.
