While tight end Jacob and wide receiver Cody were each on an injury reserve list by the time the Super Bowl came around, they were in a position to return to the team in 2019 and potentially carve out roles. This never happened , though, as both Hollisters were off the team not even three months after the NFL title game.While Jacob was traded to the Seattle Seahawks after the draft for a seventh-round selection in 2020, Cody entered free agency in mid-March: the Patriots did not place a tender sheet on the 25-year-old, allowing him to test the open market as an exclusive rights free agent. Exactly two months later, he has now found a new home. According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero Antonio Garcia Jersey , the Tennessee Titans have signed the wide receiver.Just like his twin brother, Cody Hollister entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2017. He spent his entire rookie season on the Patriots’ practice squad, and was signed to a futures deal following the season. In late July, however, the team decided to waive him with a non-football injury designation due to a back issue. While Hollister went unclaimed through the waiver wire Womens Julian Edelman Jersey , he had to sit out the entire 2018 season on New England’s non-football injury reserve list.Given his status as an exclusive rights free agent, only the Patriots were allowed to extend an offer sheet to Hollister earlier this year. This would not have been a surprise considering the team’s wide receiver situation, but it decided against bringing Hollister back into the fold. New England was still in a position to re-sign Hollister further down the line, but this is now no longer an option with the Titans picking him up. Bears linebacker Khalil Mack must wait until just before game time to learn if he gets a chance to rush New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady at Soldier Field.Mack played through an ankle injury in Chicago's last game, a 31-28 loss to Miami. On Friday , he practiced for the first time this week, although on a limited basis. Bears coach Matt Nagy says he thought Mack "moved around pretty good."Mack is listed as questionable for Sunday. Nagy says team medical personnel will monitor how he bounces back from Friday's practice.Mack has played in 70 straight games and has never missed a start."That's just who he is," the coach said.Ultimately, the decision will depend on Mack and the medical evaluations."When we get to the time when we've got to make a decision, then we'll go with what we feel is best for him and best for the team Joe Thuney Jersey ," Nagy said.Mack has five sacks, and last week was held without a sack for the first time this season. He didn't comment Friday on his injury, but wants to see the Bears defense bounce back from its worst game of the year when they face the Patriots."They're very explosive," Mack said. "They've got weapons over the top. They've got some good backs. And so it's going to be a challenge."Mack called last week's overtime loss and 31 points allowed "difficult to handle."Wide receiver Allen Robinson II practiced Friday on a limited basis after missing Thursday's practice because of a groin injury. He is questionable.Cornerback Bryce Callahan is also questionable after missing Friday's practice because of an ankle injury from Thursday's practice. Cornerback Marcus Cooper (hamstring) is doubtful. Cornerback Prince Amukamara (hamstring) and guard Eric Kush (neck) were removed from the injury list and are expected to play.
