  • Patriots' Daniel Ekuale: Suspension lifted

    Ekuale is available to play again after serving a two-game suspension to open the 2022 campaign, Mike Reiss of reports.

    Ekuale has not counted against the Patriots' 53-man roster while serving a two-game suspension for an undisclosed violation, though this exemption will come to an end this coming Wednesday. As a result, New England will need to open up a roster spot in order to keep the 28-year-old on the team. Otherwise, the Patriots would likely pursue a practice squad contract with Ekuale, who recorded five tackles, including two sacks, while playing 96 defensive snaps over nine games last season.

  • Patriots' Daniel Ekuale: Suspended two games

    Ekuale was suspended for the first two games of the 2022 regular season for unspecified reasons Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Ekuale is set to miss New England's first two games against the Dolphins and Steelers while serving his league-imposed suspension, but he'll be allowed to participate in training camp and preseason games. The 28-year-old was perhaps the most important player on the Patriots' practice squad last season, notching five tackles and two sacks on 96 defensive snaps over seven regular-season elevations, and he played in the team's opening-round playoff loss to Buffalo. Ekuale, who was used primarily as a rotational pass rusher in sub packages last season, still can show his potential value while competing for a roster spot this offseason.
