Patriots injury report: Cannon joins list

October, 17, 2013
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots had one change on their Thursday injury report, adding reserve offensive tackle/guard Marcus Cannon with a shoulder injury. Cannon, who replaced starting right guard Dan Connolly in the first quarter of Sunday’s win after Connolly sustained a concussion, was limited in Thursday’s practice.

Connolly was also limited in Thursday’s practice after missing Wednesday’s practice altogether.

If Cannon or Connolly are unavailable for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets, it would thrust eight-year veteran Will Svitek into the starting lineup. Rookie Chris Barker adds another layer of depth.

There were no other changes on the team’s injury report, as receiver Danny Amendola, cornerback Aqib Talib, defensive tackle Tommy Kelly and running back Leon Washington remained out of practice.
