Mills landed in COVID protocols Tuesday and had a chance to return in time for the playoffs, but it doesn't seem like that will happen. Hannable's report adds that D'Angelo Ross and Daniel Ekuale have been called up as COVID-19 replacements ahead of Saturday's wild-card game with the Bills.

The Sunday afternoon game between the Cowboys and Patriots was so good. So, so good.

Shortly before flying to Houston, the Patriots ruled out cornerback Jalen Mills and rookie linebacker Ronnie Perkins for Sunday’s game against the Texans. Mills had been listed as questionable with a hamstring injury, after he played a key role in the defense’s strong showing last weekend against Tampa Bay.
