Patriots rookie Malcolm Mitchell to miss four weeks

According to a source at ESPN, New England Patriots rookie receiver Malcolm Mitchell will be out for the rest of August and beyond after suffering what looked to be a dislocated elbow in the team’s first preseason game against New Orleans.

While X-Rays were negative, Mitchell will undergo an MRI soon to determine any damage.

Mitchell had been developing a good rapport with quarterback Jimmy Garappolo during camp and his short appearance on Thursday night. He had four catches for 55 yards before the injury.
