Patriots' Chris Hogan: Catches just one pass Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hogan's 57 snaps Thursday night against the Texans (out of a possible 64) were tops among Patriots wideouts in Week 3, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Pert the report, Hogan and Edelman represented the team's "primary two-receiver package," while Malcolm Mitchell and Danny Amendola divvied up time in the team's three-receiver sets. Despite extended playing time Thursday, Hogan caught just one pass (on three targets) for three yards, though that result is largely attributable to a run-heavy game plan that accounted for rookie QB Jacoby Brissett making his first NFL start. While the Patriots' Week 4 QB situation remains cloudy, things should look up for Hogan on that front no later than Week 5, once top signal-caller Tom Brady is eligible to return to action.

Patriots' Malcolm Mitchell: Catches one pass for 27 yards Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Mitchell caught one pass (on two targets) for 27 yards in Thursday's 27-0 win over the Texans.

PerESPN's Mike Reiss, Mitchell was on the field for 17 of the Patriots' 64 snaps on offense Thursday, while Chris Hogan led the way on that front by recording 57 snaps and Julian Edelman was out there for 48. At this stage, Mitchell is a speculative fantasy option, but his team context is destined to change as the season rolls along, once injuries hit his fellow wideouts, and of course in Week 5, when the Patriots welcome top QB Tom Brady back to their lineup.

Patriots' Jacoby Brissett: Dealing with thumb issue
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Brissett suffered a thumb sprain Thursday against the Texans.

Rapoport adds that Brissett's thumb injury is "not deemed to be a serious one," with the injury slated to be monitored leading up the Patriots' Oct. 2 tilt against the Bills. That said, with Tom Brady suspended for one more game and Jimmy Garoppolo dealing with a shoulder injury, we'd expect the Patriots to add QB depth in the coming days.

Patriots' Brandon Bolden: Sees just two snaps on offense Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bolden was on the field for just two of the Patriots' 64 snaps on offense in Thursday's win over the Texans, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Power back LeGarrette Blount saw 46 snaps Thursday, while pass-catching RB James White was on the field for 16. Bolden is versatile enough to back up both Blount and White, though as long as they remain healthy, Bolden's biggest contributions will come on special teams.

Patriots' James White: Sees 16 snaps Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

White carried three times for 12 yards and caught one pass for two yards (on two targets) in Thursday's 27-0 win over the Texans.

Per ESPN's Mike Reiss, White was on the field for 16 of the Patriots' 64 snaps on offense, with his modest Week 3 usage tied the team's game plan, which featured a heavy dose of power back LeGarrette Blount, while QB Jacoby Brissett only attempted 19 passes in his first NFL start.
