New England Patriots wide receiver Mohamed Sanu is dealing with an ankle injury that looks like it will keep him off the field for the Week 12 game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Sanu suffered the injury against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 11. Initially, reports said the Patriots feared Sanu would miss multiple weeks with the ankle issue.
However, after appearing in practice on Friday, it is possible that Sanu is recovering faster than expected. Still, the Patriots might not want to force the issue, which could ultimately keep him on the sideline this week.
Along with Sanu, Phillip Dorsett is also likely out for the Patriots, leaving Julian Edelman, and rookies N'Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers as the top-three receivers available. Harry made his NFL debut last week, catching three passes for 18 yards.
It's tough to predict the usage of the two rookie receivers for Sunday, since New England will also utilize James White and Rex Burkhead in the passing game out of the backfield. Although, with Sanu and Dorsett most likely out, theoretically everyone should see somewhat of a bump in volume.
Edelman and Harry are ranked as WR15 and WR31, respectively, in our Week 12 PPR rankings. White sits at RB27 in the rankings.
