Patriots waives injury-plague reciever Malcolm Mitchell
The New England Patriots are waiving injury-plagued wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell, according to multiple reports on Monday.
Mitchell practiced Saturday for the first time since training camp began, but various reports in late July said the team was shopping him in trade talks. He is continuing to battle a knee issue after missing all but one preseason game in 2017.
Mitchell reportedly had a procedure on the knee before training camp opened, but the extent of the procedure is unclear. The Providence Journal reported he faced "an uphill climb" to play at all in 2018, but other outlets were more optimistic.
Through two years in the NFL, the 26-year-old has played in 14 games (six starts), all in 2016, catching 32 passes for 401 yards and four scores. He added six grabs for 70 yards in the team's Super Bowl LI victory that postseason.
