The Patriots will be without receiver Gunner Olszewski and could be without wideout N’Keal Harry as well.

Harry, 22, was the Patriots first-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
However, he struggled in his rookie campaign, catching just 12 passes for a 105 yards and two touchdowns. He also appeared in just seven of the Patriots’ 16 regular season games.
Harry is listed as a starting wide receiver, along with Julian Edelman, on the Patriots’ official depth chart.
Since he is expected to play a major role in the offense, losing Harry would be a tough pill to swallow in Newton’s debut.
Newton will look to fill Brady’s shoes on Sunday against Miami even if he has a limited receiving core.
