I think thats 53. Subject to a few changes but this is how I feel as of today.
*I have Tyms coming back after week 4 if we have injury to WR corps.
*Tough choice between Finch/Boyce but I feel Finch has shown a lot in limited reps, is explosive and maybe our fastest back. With Vareens injury history and White not lighting up preseason, Finch has to stick.
*Not sure what happens when Browner returns but if no CB injury, I have Finch going to p/s and them cutting someone there.
*If Pats decide to release Mallet, Boyce may be in.
Edit: I am removing Browner as he doesnt count until week 5. This gives Boyce/Finch/Bolden a few more weeks to show what they got. I was thinking of adding a CB but I will give Boyce the nod. The Pats will have to hope for no injuries as they will be a little thin until Browner returns.
