Patriots release longest injury report of the season before Week 9 vs. Jets originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The New England Patriots are a banged up football team right now, and that was very clear from the injury report the team released Thursday.

A total of 17 players were listed.

Defensive linemen Lawrence Guy and Carl Davis, cornerback Stephon Gilmore, running back J.J. Taylor and wide receiver N'Keal Harry all did not practice Thursday. Gilmore, Davis and Harry did not play last Sunday in the Patriots' Week 8 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Harry also did not practice last week, and it's unknown when he'll return.

There were 12 players limited in Patriots practice, including rookie safety Kyle Dugger, who did not play against the Bills. 

Luckily for the Patriots, their Week 9 opponent is the New York Jets, who are the NFL's only winless team with an 0-8 record.

The Jets also had a lengthy injury report Thursday with 15 players listed. Jets quarterback Sam Darnold did not practice, but head coach Adam Gase is optimistic about his status for Monday night's game at MetLife Stadium.
