The New England Patriots can’t seem to catch a break with their injury report.
While many know of the injuries to their quarterbacks, they now have two more players added to their injury list.
Who are these two key players out this Sunday versus the Cleveland Browns?
WR Nelson Agholor And DB Jonathan Jones Are Out
According to Adam Schefter, both Nelson Agholor and Jonathan Jones will miss Sunday’s game against the Browns.

Agholor’s hamstring injury, which he re-aggravated during the team’s 29-0 win against the Detroit Lions, is keeping him out.
However, Jones’ injury is an ankle injury he suffered during the second-half of that Lions game last week.
The Patriots’ top corner this season is coming off a season-ending shoulder surgery.
While he previously felt this ankle injury wasn’t a foreseeable issue, it seems the Patriots will take it easy with him.
But how much will this affect the team as they head into Cleveland?
Losing Jones Is Tough As The Browns Are A Run Heavy Offense
The injury to Jonathan Jones is a tremendous blow to a Patriots defense needing a sure-fire tackler against the Browns.
While the team has other options, they aren’t as good with tackling running backs.
If those two can break into the secondary, it will become a long day for Bill Belichick and his team.
He can only hope his front seven can shut down an explosive Browns running game.
