ankle injury Derek Rivers Jerseys 2019 , coach Matt Nagy said on Wednesday.Mack was hurt early in last week's overtime loss at Miami and his 2018 streak of at least one sack and one forced fumble in each game ended. Playing without the two-time All-Pro would be a huge blow, particularly with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots visiting on Sunday."We're just going to continue to keep an eye on it and make sure whatever we do, we're more cautious than anything," Nagy said. "I believe in that and I think it's important to go that route."Mack has not missed a game since Oakland drafted him with the No. 5 overall pick in 2014. Chicago acquired him from the Raiders just before the start of the season, after he held out the entire offseason and preseason trying to secure a long-term deal rather than play under the final season of his rookie contract. He and the Bears then agreed to a six-year, $141 million extension that guarantees $90 million.The trade for Mack has energized a franchise with four straight last-place finishes in the NFC North. Despite the loss at Miami, the Bears (3-2) remain in sole possession of the division lead for the first time since late in the 2013 season. But the defense wasn't the same against the Dolphins with Mack at less than 100 percent.The pass rush never got to Miami quarterback Brock Osweiler, and the Bears' league-best run defense was trampled by 35-year-old running back Frank Gore for 101 of Miami's 161 yards rushing.Missed tackles on Albert Wilson contributed to two shorter passes going for long touchdowns to cap off a rough game in the heat for the Bears. Let’s dissect the Patriots’ first-round selection."WhitePatriots News Opinion and Analysis Contribute!

Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsAt the end of the NFL draft’s first round, the New England Patriots decided to not trade down but instead invest in one of the top wide receiver prospects available: Arizona State’s N’Keal Harry, who will add size and physicality to the Patriots’ receiving group — two elements that the team lost when tight end Rob Gronkowski retired last month. Harry will not replace Gronk one-for-one, of course, but he should help soften the blow.Generally White Deatrich Wise Jerseys , it is easy to see why the team liked him when looking at the tape. He is a big receiver who has strong hands, excellent vision and plays with a physical edge. All in all, he fits New England’s X-receiver mold perfectly — but his talents extend beyond just one particular role, as he also possesses the versatility to be moved around the formation to be used against the best available matchups.Let’s dive into Harry’s film to find out exactly what he might bring to the table for the Patriots in 2019 and beyond.Contested catch abilityOne of Harry’s defining attributes is his ability to come down with the football in traffic — to a certain degree similar to what Rob Gronkowski brought to the offense. One reason for that is his knowledge of route concepts and how to best get himself in position to make a play on the football. The following reception against Oregon illustrates how some good route-running in combination with a bigger frame leads to a reception:Running and out-and-up route combination, Harry was able to shake free of the cornerback to give quarterback Manny Wilkins confidence in his receiver. Despite the defensive back right on his hips, the wideout then successfully climbed up the ladder to catch the pass through contact. Jump passes similar to this one will undoubtably be in the books for Harry considering his frame and experience making contested catches.The same also is on display on the following play, when is covered in an off-man defense:Running and in-cutting route, Harry was able to haul in a low pass despite Oregon’s defender getting his hand in the breadbasket at the perfect time. However, Arizona State’s receiver was able to stay in possession of the ball through the breakup attempt — displaying strong hands together with solid concentration and also a nice, quick in-cut at the top of his route.As noted above, Harry’s route running and spatial awareness of his defensive matchup is generally one of the reasons why he is a successful contested/jump ball catcher. The following play, despite being an incompletion, is another example of it:Harry was in a position to make a play on the ball had it not been thrown his way late and to the wrong location. Nevertheless Deatrich Wise Jerseys 2019 , the wideout did a good job getting in the area between the cornerback’s back and the boundary to put himself in a position for a back-shoulder catch. This ability should certainly come in handy in the NFL, and when playing with a quarterback like Tom Brady that trust his receivers to make plays.Yards after the catchHarry isn’t the speediest of wide receivers, but he certainly is able to break away from the defense for additional yardage after the catch. The following play against UTSA is a good example of that:Originally aligning on the left-side perimeter, Harry moved towards the middle of the field to plug a short pass out of the air — despite plenty of traffic surrounding him. Again, however, he made the grab and immediately got spun around before heading up the field. Finding a hole behind a block, the pass catcher gradually built up speed and in combination with some good downfield blocking was able to take the short pass for a 58-yard touchdown.His vision to find holes and make defenders miss also is an asset in the screen game, as can be seen on this play:Again, Harry registered a short reception on an in-breaking motion and in combination with some good blocking in front of him was able to head down the field almost immediately — something former Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola excelled at during his time in New England. Originally moving towards the boundary, Harry moved back inwards to shake his man before fighting through traffic to the first down marker.Plays like this a stable of Rob Gronkowski’s skill set: defenders all over him, still being able to keep the legs moving. Gronkowski, of course, was in his own league when it came to fighting through contact White Joe Thuney Jerseys , but Harry has some positive attributes in this area as well.PhysicalityOne reason for that is the 21-year-old’s physical play as both a receiver and a blocker in the running and screen game. First, a look at him out-muscling a defensive back for a reception:Starting in the left-side slot, Harry ran down the field before moving inside at the top of his route. He used his comparatively massive 6’2 frame to shield himself and the ball from the defender in coverage to make the reception. Given his combination of size, length and strength in combination with solid hands and an ability to time his jump perfectly, the cornerback guarding Harry had little chance of making a play on the ball without interfering with the receiver.As noted above, his physicality is also on display in the running game:On this play, we can see Harry getting his hands dirty as a blocker for Arizona State’s rushing attempt. Going against a cornerback, the wideout got a solid initial push to the inside in order to move the defender away from the potential rushing lane. He then followedthis push up by heading up the field looking for the next player to block — which he did until the whistle was blown. All in all, Harry’s blocking in the ground game certainly contributed to the Patriots having him high on their draft board.Room for growthAs with every rookie, of course, there is still room for growth when it comes to entering the NFL. The following three plays illustrate areas that Harry has to address. Luckily, neither of those are irreparable issues that might hinder his development at the next level.Let’s start with a simple drop:Usually a strong pass catcher, Harry struggled with concentration drops every now and then. All in all Joe Thuney Jerseys 2019 , Pro Football Focus credited him with six drops in 2018 and some — like this one above — are simply the result of the receiver losing focus by taking his eyes off the ball to soon to brace for potential contact. As said above, the issue should not be considered major at this point in time and especially considering that Harry will now play with one of the best ball-placement passers the NFL has ever seen.One aspect that has been mentioned quite a lot when it comes to Harry is his lack of explosiveness off the ball. This is certainly something to keep an eye on, because it sometimes hindered his ability to enter his routes:To make up for his explosiveness, Harry oftentimes relied on a motor release to try and get defensive backs to open their hips. If the defender does not bite, however, this presents a problem for the receiver: he lacks the burst to simply run by them and can get eliminated from a play if hesitating too much — especially if it also messes up the timing of the play. The Patriots’ coaching staff will likely find a way to mask this problem, but it is also something the player himself has to recognize and work on.The third aspect in which Harry still has room for growth is him keeping his cards close to the vest at the begging of a play — something he did not do on this example:As opposed to Pac-12 cornerbacks, those in the NFL will find a way to take advantage if a receiver tips his hand too soon — the play above would therefore likely result in an interception (or worse) at the next level. Again, however, this is mostly a question of coaching. Just like the rest of Harry’s relative shortcomings at the moment, it can and will be worked on by New England’s staff.All in all, the Patriots invested in a very polished receiver that still has some room to grow: he can eliminate his issues to become more consistent and simultaneously has an intriguing foundation as a physical player capable of making tough catches and generating yards after receptions. It will certainly be interesting to see how New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels uses Harry’s talents in 2019 and beyond.
