Thursday update: Parker was not practicing on Thursday after missing Wednesday’s practice as well. He appears unlikely to suit up this week.
New England Patriots wide receiver DeVante Parker sat out of practice on Wednesday with a knee injury. The Pats face the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Parker has the second-most receiving yards on the team this season behind Jakobi Meyers. He left last week’s game against the New York Jets with a knee sprain after his first offensive snap.

Fantasy football implications for Week 9
Meyers will continue to see plenty of targets if Parker is out, and Mac Jones will also be looking toward Tyquan Thornton, who recently moved ahead of Nelson Agholor on the Pats’ depth chart and has seen an uptick in receptions in the last few weeks.
New England has also been relying on running back Rhamondre Stevenson to fill a receiving role. The RB actually led the team in receiving yards last week against the Jets, as well as in rushing yards, adding over 70 on both stat sheets.
