Malcolm Mitchell (W / NE)

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) hauled in six of seven targets for 70 yards in the Patriots' 34-28 Super Bowl LI overtime victory over the Falcons.

Impact

The rookie stepped up on the big stage, serving as a valuable target for Tom Brady in the Patriots' monumental second-half comeback. Mitchell impressively checked in third in receptions on the team behind James White and Danny Amendola, and will be primed to build on his 32-catch, 401-yard, four-touchdown rookie season in 2017.

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's Super Bowl LI versus the Falcons.

Impact

In his first action since Week 16, Mitchell hauled in just one of four targets for five yards during the Patriots' triumph in the AFC championship game against the Steelers. If the Falcons seek to stop the likes of Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan (thigh), Mitchell could find room to operate against an Atlanta defense that has surrendered double-digit catches to wideouts in 15 of 18 contests this season (including playoffs).

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's Super Bowl against the Falcons.

Impact

Mitchell's knee problem kept him limited during practice this week, but like most of his teammates on the injury report, the rookie is anticipated to be cleared to play Sunday. Although Mitchell has caught only one of four targets for four yards in the playoffs, his presence figures to add valuable depth to Tom Brady's targets.

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Impact

Mitchell is in no real danger of missing Sunday's Super Bowl, though he's a speculative fantasy play in the contest. In two playoff outings thus far, Mitchell has caught just one pass (on four targets) for five yards while working behind fellow wideouts Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan.

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) was limited at practice Thursday.

Impact

Mitchell should be fine for the Super Bowl after logging 48 (out of a possible 74) snaps on offense in the Patriots' win over the Steelers in the AFC championship game this past Sunday. In two playoff contests thus far, Mitchell has caught just one pass (on four targets) for five yards and thus represents a speculative fantasy play, while working behind fellow wideouts Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan.

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's AFC championship game against the Steelers.

Impact

The rookie wideout, who last suited up Dec. 24, profiles as a speculative fantasy play Sunday after missing a stretch of game action. Moreover, Mitchell will be competing with Chris Hogan and Danny Amendola for looks in the New England passing game behind Julian Edelman, the team's target-gobbling wideout.

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is expected to play in Sunday's AFC championship game versus the Steelers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Impact

If he indeed avoids the inactive list, Mitchell will be making his first appearance since Week 16. With nearly a month to rehab a knee injury, the rookie wideout could be a breath of fresh air to the passing game. However, Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan (thigh) typically receive the most snaps among Patriots wideouts on any given Sunday, thereby hindering Mitchell's potential.

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's AFC championship game against the Steelers.

Impact

Mitchell, who last suited up Dec. 24, is "trending in the right direction this week," according to ESPN's Mike Reiss. Still, the rookie wideout remains a speculative fantasy play after missing time, not to mention that he's competing for targets behind top wideout Julian Edelman with Danny Amendola, Michael Floyd and Chris Hogan (thigh).

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday.

Impact

CSN New England relays that Mitchell is "feeling well" as Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Steelers approaches, but it's still likely that the rookie wideout will end up officially listed as questionable for the contest. If he does end up returning to action this weekend, Mitchell would be in line, along with Danny Amendola and Michael Floyd, to jostle for wideout snaps behind Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan.

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is listed as inactive Saturday against the Texans.

Impact

Mitchell continues to deal with the residual effects of a knee injury suffered in Week 16, managing limited practices after a first-round bye. The Patriots will thus exercise caution with their rookie wide receiver, but in the event they advance to the AFC championship game, there's a sense of optimism within the organization that he'll be available next weekend, according to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald. With Mitchell sidelined, Tom Brady will lean on wideouts Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Michael Floyd, and Danny Amendola.

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is not expected to play in Saturday's playoff game against the Texans.

Impact

Mitchell injured his knee in Week's 16 win over the Jets, and is the only Patriots player on the team's injury report heading into Saturday's tilt. Michael Floyd and/or Danny Amendola figure to be in line to see additional wideout snaps behind Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan in Mitchell's expected absence.

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is listed as questionable for Saturday's playoff game against the Texans, CSN New England reports.

Impact

Mitchell, who suffered a knee injury in Week's 16 win over the Jets, is the only New England player with an injury designation this week, so he's no lock to return to action Saturday after being inactive in Week 17. If he's unable to suit up, Michael Floyd and/or Danny Amendola would be in line to see added wideout snaps behind Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan.

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) remained limited at practice Thursday.

Impact

Per ESPN's Mike Reiss, Mitchell's status for Saturday night's game against the Texans remains in question, with the wideout likely in line to be officially listed as questionable for the contest.

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday.

Impact

Mitchell missed Week 17's win over the Dolphins but returned to practice last week on Thursday. His limited action Wednesday could simply mean the Patriots are taking precautionary measures as Saturday's divisional matchup nears, but more information on the situation should be released in the coming days. If he is able to practice in full later this week, expect the wideout to compete for reps alongside Michael Floyd and Danny Amendola.

Malcolm Mitchell (knee), who sat out the Patriots' regular season finale against the Dolphins, returned to practice Thursday, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Impact

After the rookie missed practice all of last week, his return to work, in any capacity, on Thursday bodes well for Mitchell's chances of being available for the team's Jan. 14 playoff opener. With Danny Amendola practicing as well and the recently claimed Michael Floyd also on hand, the Patriots could be pretty deep at the wideout position as they embark on their postseason run.

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) will not play Sunday against the Dolphins.

Impact

Mitchell was unable to practice all week and was listed as doubtful before being downgraded to out Saturday night. In his absence, newly acquired Michael Floyd could have some unexpected opportunities as New England's third wide receiving option behind Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan.

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Impact

With Danny Amendola (ankle) ruled out and Mitchell headed in that direction, recently-acquired Michael Floyd figures to see added work in Week 17 behind fellow wideouts Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan.

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) missed practice again Thursday, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Impact

Back-to-back missed practice sessions cloud Mitchell's status for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. While the Patriots still have their sights on securing home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs, which would be secured by a win this weekend, we suspect that the team will err on the side of caution with certain banged-up players who could benefit from some time off in advance of the team's first-round bye.

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Impact

Per CSN New England, Mitchell appeared to tweak his knee in the third quarter of Week 16's win over the Jets, so the rookie wideout's status will need to be monitored as Sunday's game against the Dolphins approaches. In the event that Mitchell is limited at all, or out altogether this weekend, fellow wideout Michael Floyd would be a candidate to see his snap count upped in Week 17.

Malcolm Mitchell caught three of his five targets for 29 yards while seeing action on 58 of 75 snaps on offense in Saturday's 41-3 win over the Jets.

Impact

Mitchell has combined for four catches and 43 yards over the Patriots' last two games, though he continues to see his share of snaps in the team's offense. The rookie wideout looks like a speculative play against Miami next weekend, but the Patriots do, at least, have something to play for in Week 17, with the No. 1 playoff seed in the AFC not yet secured.
