Sunday against the Cowboys could even more of a challenge for Tom Brady and the Patriots offense, as it appears it might be going into the game with just three wide receivers.

Listen to your team news NOW.

According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, Phillip Dorsett (concussion) has not yet been cleared for full football activity, which increases the likelihood he will not be able to play.

With Mohamed Sanu reportedly not expected to play either, the team is left with three wide receivers: Julian Edelman and rookies N'Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers.

Certainly, things can change over the next 24 hours, but things are trending in a direction where Brady will be forced to throw to Edelman and two rookies. If this is the case, look for the tight ends to become more involved in the passing game and also some plays where James White/Rex Burkhead line up as wide receivers.

Brady himself is questionable for the game with a right elbow injury that popped up Friday.
