Friday update: Meyers was able to get in limited practices each day this week and is listed as questionable. He has had similar weeks recently that ended up in him not playing, so his status is truly in question.
Thursday update: Meyers was once again listed as limited on the injury report.
Wednesday update: Meyers was officially limited on Wednesday. This is a good sign for his possible participation on Sunday.
Meyers is a wide receiver by trade, but the Patriots could use him as a backup quarterback in an emergency. They found themselves in a tough spot last week with Meyers injured alongside starting QB Mac Jones and backup Brian Hoyer, but rookie third-stinger Bailey Zappe stepped up and took the Patriots to overtime against the Packers.
Fantasy football implications
If Meyers is back in, he’ll likely be splitting snaps and targets with DeVante Parker and Nelson Agholor. Lil’Jordan Humphrey has been filling in during Meyers’ absence as well, and Kendrick Bourne has taken the field for several snaps each week.
