Though the roster is close to final, it only has 52 players, leaving room for at least one more addition. Tight end Ryan Izzo will reportedly head to IR as well, which means multiple changes are likely imminent.

Running back (4): Rex Burkhead, Jeremy Hill, Sony Michel, James White
Wide receiver (4): Phillip Dorsett, Chris Hogan, Cordarrelle Patterson, Matthew Slater
Tight end (5): Dwyane Allen, James Develin, Rob Gronkowski, Jacob Hollister, Ryan Izzo
Offensive line (7): David Andrews, Trent Brown, Marcus Cannon, Ted Karras, Shaq Mason, Joe Thuney, LaAdrian Waddle
Defensive line (10): Malcom Brown, Adam Butler, Adrian Clayborn, Keionta Davis, Trey Flowers, Geneo Grissom, Lawrence Guy, Derek Rivers, Danny Shelton, Deatrich Wise
Linebacker (6): Ja’Whaun Bentley, Nicholas Grigsby, Dont’a Hightower, Brandon King, Elandon Roberts, Kyle Van Noy

It’s certainly possible the Patriots could add another wide receiver to play alongside Dorsett, Hogan, and Patterson in Julian Edelman’s absence. They could also use the final roster spot for an offensive tackle, or potentially a third-string quarterback.
