Phillip Dorsett out, 6 other Patriots questionable vs. Giants

By WEEI 93.7

The Patriots will be without one of their top wide receivers Thursday night against the Giants.

Phillip Dorsett officially was ruled out in the team's final injury report of the week released Wednesday afternoon. This means rookie Jakobi Meyers will slide into the No. 3 wide receiver role. Dorsett was injured Sunday in Washington.

In addition, six other players were listed as questionable, including Rex Burkhead, Patrick Chung and Nate Ebner. All three missed last Sunday's game against the Redskins.

Here's the complete Patriots injury report.
