The New England Patriots issued their first injury report of the season Monday, and there was a notable takeaway:
Patriots running back Travaris Cadet, who injured his hamstring early in training camp and didn't appear in a preseason game, was a full participant. That reflects that he's close to returning to game action.
Cadet flashed at times before his injury, showing a knack for catching the ball (he was a receiver at Appalachian State) and his speed was also hard to miss.
He should factor into the mix on third down as well.
