Ashley Lelie suffered a separated shoulder in the team's loss to Carolina on Sunday and will not play this weekend, coach Jim Mora said.
The Patriots need Deion Branch, but it doesn't appear the WR will be in their lineup anytime soon, writes Len Pasquarelli.

The Falcons late Tuesday reached agreement in principle with unrestricted free agent defensive tackle Grady Jackson on a three-year contract.
Filling their need for a No. 3 wide receiver, the Atlanta Falcons on Tuesday night acquired disgruntled Denver Broncos veteran Ashley Lelie in a three-team trade, ESPN.com has learned.
