“Last week, after he had the punt return where it appeared he might have twisted up his leg, probably led to what I’m hearing might be a high ankle sprain that could keep him on the sidelines for a couple of weeks unless it has drastic improvement,” (Patriots beat writer Tom E.)

Sanu's absence opens the door for more opportunities for rookie WR N'Keal Harry, who played 32 snaps against the Eagles. It will be interesting to see if the Patriots involve Harry more, especially after the unit was called out earlier this week by Tom Brady. The team may also sprinkle Jakobi Meyers more. But Harry will likely get the first crack after Julian Edelman and Phillip Dorsett.
