2. Tyrone Wheatley Jr.
Like Boutte, offensive lineman Tyrone Wheatley Jr. hasn't seen a ton of action this season.
Despite impressing by cracking the 53-man roster as an undrafted rookie this summer, Wheatley hasn't suited up since Week 2. The Buffalo, NY native was largely invisible in the two games he did appear in, being held to just five special teams snaps.
Wheatley likely faces another uphill battle to crack New England's Week 5 lineup. The Patriots' offensive line is getting healthier by the day, proven by Sidy Sow's return last week. As it stands, our only injuries to the unit are LG Cole Strange and RT Riley Reiff.
Although Reiff (knee) will stay on the IR for the foreseeable future, Strange (knee) practicing last week — albeit in a limited fashion — bodes well for his chances of playing this weekend. In other words, there isn't exactly a need to play Wheatley.
Even after our O-line left much to be desired in Week 4, a lot of things likely need to go wrong for Wheatley to be active come Sunday.
