New England Patriots receiver Nelson Agholor was not present for practice on Sunday when the team went through a padded session.
Agholor did not suffer an apparent injury in the previous practice, so it’s unclear why he did not participate. He joined the Patriots this offseason on a two-year deal worth $22 million.
But it got worse for New England over the course of practice. Tight end Hunter Henry, long snapper Joe Cardona and offensive lineman Jerald Hawkins left the field with members of the Patriots’ training staff.
Henry appeared to suffer his injury during competitive drills when he was blocking linebacker Anfernee Jennings. He went into the trainer’s space, where head trainer Jim Whelan looked closely at Henry’s shoulder. The tight end joined the Patriots in free agency this offseason on a three-year, $37.4 million deal.
Cardona is the team’s starting long snapper, and has been since the Patriots drafted him in 2015. He has never missed a game.
Henry and Agholor figure to be centerpieces of the offensive, when healthy.
