FOXBOROUGH — Stephon Gilmore missed his third straight practice Friday, meaning the Patriots will be without two of their top cornerbacks for Sunday night’s matchup with the Falcons. Both he and Eric Rowe have been ruled out.
Rowe has been out since aggravating a groin injury in Week 4.
Gilmore was a surprise scratch against the Jets last week with a concussion after being at practice all week.
Additionally, linebacker Harvey Langi continued to miss practice as he recovers from back and neck injuries suffered in a car accident a week ago. He was ruled out, as well.
With Gilmore and Rowe out, Johnson Bademosi again figures to start at cornerback opposite Malcolm Butler, with Jonathan Jones another option.
Bademosi was a new addition to the injury report with an abdominal ailment. He was a full participant in practice, but is listed as questionable for the game.
The Patriots also have cornerbacks Ryan Lewis and Jomal Wiltz on the practice squad, and one of them could be promoted. The team could open a spot by placing Langi on the non-football injury list.
