FOXBOROUGH — Wide receiver Kendrick Bourne, who played just two snaps against the Dolphins, said he “for sure” is expecting a bigger role against the Steelers after a good week of practice.

“Felt better. Felt a lot better,” Bourne said. “Healthy. Just moving well. Just want to do everything right that I’m supposed to do.’’

Bourne, one of Mac Jones’s top targets a season ago, said he’s maintained a positive attitude despite the reduced workload.

“Just keeping my spirits high. Not getting down,” Bourne said. “Just staying focused. Staying in the playbook. Staying on top of the things that I need to be on top of so I can be ready to make plays.”
