Vikings are awaiting word on WR Adam Thielen’s status after positive -- and negative -- COVID-19 tests.
Pelissero said Thielen's status is "up in the air." The NFL and the medical experts are continuing to sort through Thielen's situation. Owners will have to continue to monitor the status of Thielen's testing leading up to Week 12.
Pelissero has said all along Bridgewater has a better chance to play this week against the Vikings, and that continues to hold true on Tuesday. As for McCaffrey, Pelissero called his status "up in the air."
Rex Burkhead was running well this season and looked to be in the discussion for the Patriots’ most effective back. However, that all came to an end Sunday when he suffered a season-ending knee injury that may end his time in New England.
Burkhead will be a 30-year-old unrestricted free agent and may not be in the plans for the Patriots moving forward. Harris, White and Michel, who didn't play in Week 11 but was activated, will lead the way at RB. It could continue to be a cloudy situation when it comes to the New England running backs especially if Michel is activated for Week 12.
