  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Gambling charge dropped

    The state of Louisiana dropped misdemeanor underage gambling and felony computer fraud charges against Boutte, the receiver's attorney announced Tuesday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

    The 22-year-old was arrested in January in Baton Rouge, La. after he was alleged to have taken part in illegal sports betting while under the legal age of 21 during his time in college at LSU. Even while his legal situation was unresolved, Boutte was a full participant in spring practices for the Patriots, and he's unlikely to be subject to discipline from the NFL now that the charges have been dropped. A 2023 sixth-round draft pick, Boutte suited up for just five games as a rookie and will be fighting for a roster spot in a New England wide receiver group that lacks a true No. 1 option but has plenty of depth.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Finishes up minicamp strong

    Boutte turned in a strong effort during Wednesday's mandatory minicamp session, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site reports.

    On the last day of minicamp practice prior to the Patriots' summer break, Boutte logged a team-high five catches during team drills, which Lazar notes included a sequence in which the 2023 sixth-round pick reeled in three consecutive scores. As the coming season approaches, Boutte will have to compete with the likes of JuJu Smith-Schuster, K.J. Osborn, Tyquan Thornton and Jalen Reagor for slotting in a wideout corps that also includes Kendrick Bourne (knee) -- who is recovering from an ACL tear -- as well as likely roster locks in the youthful trio of DeMario Douglas, Ja'Lynn Polk and Javon Baker. Additionally, it's possible that Boutte faces NFL discipline stemming from his January arrest and subsequent charges of computer fraud and gaming prohibited for persons under 21, which occurred during his time in college at LSU.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Limited role as rookie

    Boutte finished the 2023 season with two catches (on seven targets) for 19 yards in five games with the Patriots.

    During his rookie season, Boutte logged just 117 snaps on offense, per Evan Lazar of the team's official site, but the 2023 sixth-rounder is viewed as a player with some untapped potential, given the promise that he displayed early on during his college career at LSU. Looking ahead to the 2024 season, Boutte will look to carve out a role in New England's offense, but at this stage where he lands in the wideout pecking order hinges in large part on the team's upcoming roster moves via free agency and the draft.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Sheds injury designation

    Boutte (illness) doesn't appear Wednesday on the Patriots' initial Week 18 injury report.

    Boutte sat out Sunday's loss to the Bills, but the rookie wide receiver appears to have recovered and should be good to go for the Patriots' season finale against the Jets this weekend. The LSU product hasn't found much success in his first NFL campaign, suiting up just four times while recording two catches for 19 yards on seven targets.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Won't play Sunday

    Boutte has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills due to an illness, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site reports.

    With Boutte unavailable, DeVante Parker, Demario Douglas, Jalen Reagor and Tyquan Thornton are in line to handle the Patriots' WR duties Sunday. Boutte's next chance to see game action will arrive in the team's season finale next weekend against the Jets.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Inactive versus Chiefs

    Boutte is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site reports.

    Boutte has been managing a shoulder issue, but didn't carry a Week 15 injury designation, so it appears as though he's a healthy scratch Sunday. With JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle) also inactive, the Patriots' WR duties versus Kansas City will be handled by DeVante Parker, Demario Douglas, Tyquan Thornton and Jalen Reagor.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Cleared to play

    Boutte (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

    Boutte missed the Patriots' Week 14 win over Pittsburgh and now is looking at an uncertain role Week 15 with each of JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle), DeVante Parker (knee) and Tyquan Thornton (hamstring) listed as questionable. The most likely outcome at this point is Boutte handling a depth role, with Demario Douglas out of concussion protocol and locked in as a starter while at least one or two of the players listed as questionable figure to suit up.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Turns in limited practice

    Boutte (shoulder) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

    Boutte was forced to miss the team's Week 14 win over the Steelers last Thursday, but his ability to take part in the Patriots' first Week 15 practice is a positive sign. The wide receiver will look to increase his activity Thursday and Friday before the Patriots decide whether he'll carry a designation into Sunday's game versus the Chiefs.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Won't play Thursday

    Boutte (shoulder) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Steelers.

    Boutte has been active for the Patriots' last two games and recorded two catches for 19 yards on three targets, but he's nursing the shoulder injury coming out of this past Sunday's 6-0 loss to the Chargers. Though he was listed as a limited participant on practice reports issued Tuesday and Wednesday, Boutte ultimately wasn't able to overcome the shoulder issue on a short week and will be in street clothes Thursday. Fellow wideout Demario Douglas (concussion) has also been ruled out for Week 14, while DeVante Parker (knee) and JuJu Smith-Schuster (ankle) are both listed as questionable.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Increases activity level

    Boutte (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant on Tuesday's injury report.

    Boutte was listed as a DNP on Monday's practice estimate, so this is a step in the right direction for the rookie receiver. However, it's not clear if the Patriots ran a typical practice or walkthrough Tuesday, but he'll have another opportunity to ramp up his activity level Wednesday. He should still be considered questionable for Thursday's matchup with the Steelers.

  • Patriots' Kayshon Boutte: Still dealing with injury

    Boutte (shoulder) was a non-participant on Monday's practice estimate.

    Boutte was unable to practice last week and missed the team's loss to the Chargers on Sunday. Although the report is just an estimated level of participation, it's not a good start to the week for the LSU product and his chances of suiting up Thursday against the Steelers. He'll likely need to get on the field in some capacity Tuesday to have a chance to play.
