Summary

Sheard was a low-cost pickup for the Patriots last year and he rewarded them with 8 sacks in a part-time role. His play likely allowed the Patriots to feel comfortable trading Chandler Jones to the Cardinals, and that should result in a big boost in playing time. The team also brought in Chris Long to provide some depth, but Sheard figures to play a key role and has a great chance to break double digit sacks on his way to a DE1 type of year. (August 7)

Patriots | Jabaal Sheard out 2-4 weeks (Tue Aug 23, 12:28 PM) - New England Patriots DE Jabaal Sheard (knee) will be out two to four weeks with a sprained medial collateral ligament.

Our View: He should be ready by the time the regular season starts, but that's not a given. Sheard is an important player on a defense that has lost talent due to free agency and injury. We'll see if he can make it back for the season opener.
