Patriots wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell, who missed all of 2017 with a knee injury, has not been seen practicing for the last two weeks.
This is particularly notable given the four-game suspension recently doled out to Julian Edelman. Mitchell is a player who has dealt with knee injuries dating back to Georgia, where he suffered an ACL tear, and another knee injury requiring arthroscopic surgery. Mitchell also missed two games in 2016 due to a knee strain. The path to relevance appears to be opening even wider for the likes of Jordan Matthews and Kenny Britt.
