FOXBORO -- It looks like Patriots rookie offensive lineman Sidy Sow suffered a setback in his return from a concussion. Sow did not participate in Thursday's practice behind Gillette Stadium, after he was a limited participant on Wednesday.
Sow missed last Sunday's loss to the Dolphins and could be in jeopardy of missing this weekend's game against the Jets in New Jersey. The fourth-round pick was a spot starter at right tackle for New England in Week 1 against Philadelphia, in place of the injured Mike Onwenu, who returned to action last Sunday.
Sow's limited participation on Wednesday would indicate that he was in the final stages of the NFL's concussion protocol, but sitting out Thursday likely means there was a setback.
In addition to Sow, cornerback Marcus Jones also missed Thursday's practice. It was his second straight absence after he was knocked out of Sunday's game with a shoulder injury, which means he likely won't suit up this weekend against the Jets.
New England listed six players as limited participants on Thursday, the same six players that were limited on Wednesday:
DL Christian Barmore, Knee
OT Trent Brown, Concussion
CB Jonathan Jones, Ankle
OL Mike Onwenu, Ankle
WR DeVante Parker, Knee
G Cole Strange, Knee
So it looks like the Patriots will get starting left tackle Trent Brown back this weekend, which is good news for Mac Jones and company against a talented Jets defense.
For New York, defensive lineman John Franklin-Myers was limited on Thursday after he missed Wednesday's practice. The Jets listed six players as limited at Thursday's session:
T Mekhi Becton, Knee
CB Michael Carter II, Elbow
RB Breece Hall, Knee
DL John Franklin-Myers, Hip
LB Quincy Williams, Knee
K Greg Zuerlein, Groin
New York safety Tony Adams (hamstring) and tackle Duane Brown (shoulder, hip) did not participate for a second straight day on Thursday.
