Five veteran Patriots were placed on the active/physically-unable-to-perform list Thursday, meaning they are not ready to practice.
Center David Andrews, running back James White, cornerback Jonathan Jones, safety Jabril Peppers, and linebacker Raekwon McMillan likely won’t be active when camp opens Wednesday morning. They can come off the list at any time.
Andrews revealed on social media in January he had shoulder surgery. White is still recovering from a hip injury suffered in Week 3 against the Saints. Jones had season-ending shoulder surgery following a Week 6 injury against the Cowboys. McMillan tore his ACL in camp and Peppers suffered an ACL injury in October.
As for titles, no official coordinators
The Patriots unveiled official titles for their coaching staff and for the fifth straight season, there is no official defensive coordinator named. The club also didn’t name an offensive coordinator after Josh McDaniels left for the Raiders head coaching job.
Matt Patricia added offensive line to his senior football adviser. As expected, Joe Judge’s title is offensive assistant/quarterbacks coach.
