FOXBOROUGH -- You can potentially add another Patriots tight end to the injury list.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Ryan Izzo was not spotted at the start of Patriots practice on Friday, in addition to Matt LaCosse.

LaCosse didn't practice Thursday either due to a knee injury and is not expected to play Monday night against the Jets. This meant the only two tight ends present at practice were Benjamin Watson and Eric Tomlinson, both of which were signed earlier this week.

Also not spotted were Michael Bennett and Josh Gordon.

Bennett is suspended, while Gordon suffered a knee injury against the Giants last Thursday. Given this would be Gordon's third missed practice of the week, he seems unlikely to play Monday. He has been seen in the locker room and is moving better than he was last Friday.

The Patriots will practice again Saturday before Monday night's division game.
