The Patriots received both good and bad news on their latest injury report on Wednesday.

Defensive lineman Christian Barmore was a surprise addition to the list, with the third-year pro limited during Wednesday’s practice due to a knee injury.

The only Patriot who did not practice at all on Wednesday due to injury was cornerback Marcus Jones, who injured his shoulder while attempting to tackle Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle on Sunday.

Defensive tackle Davon Godchaux also was absent, as he and his fiancee, Chanel Iman, celebrated the birth of a baby girl, Capri Summer Godchaux, on Tuesday.

As for the good news, several Patriots who missed Sunday’s game against the Dolphins returned to practice, albeit in a limited role. Trent Brown — who reportedly signed a reworked contract with New England on Tuesday — took part in practice after recovering from a concussion. 

Veteran cornerback Jonathan Jones also practiced after missing Week 2 due to an ankle injury.
