Bill Belichick, Patriots Will Be Very Thin At Wide Receiver Against Bills

New England Patriots general manager Bill Belichick might have a problem on his hands. Julian Edelman is out at least one game with a knee injury, and N’Keal Harry missed Wednesday’s practice with a concussion and has yet to be ruled healthy enough to play Sunday. That leaves the team with three healthy wide receivers.

Ever heard of Damiere Byrd, Gunner Olszewski and Jakobi Meyers? Those are the wide receivers Belichick and Cam Newton will have available, unless someone from the practice squad is pulled up, when New England (2-4) takes on Buffalo (5-2) in Sunday’s critical AFC East matchup.

Bill’s choices at wide receiver:

• Byrd has 10 NFL starts, 67 catches for 721 yards and 3 touchdowns in 34 games

• Olszewski has three career catches

• Meyers has 31 career catches

The practice squad also has three guys — Isaiah Zuber, Mason Kinsey and Kristian Wilkerson — with a combined stat line of one catch for 16 yards during their NFL careers.

  1. This is why I can’t proclaim Brady the difference maker yet. If you throw Brady back in this Pats offense with THOSE WR, what’s he going to do better than Cam? Nothing. The Pats have less talent at WR than Philadelphia this year.
