New England Patriots linebacker Kyle Van Noy will miss Sunday’s game against the host New York Jets due to a throat injury.

The 30-year-old Van Noy had three tackles and one sack in the season-opening 17-16 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

Van Noy is beginning his second stint with the Patriots and 45 of his 65 career NFL starts have come for the team. Overall, he has 361 tackles, 24.5 sacks and seven forced fumbles in 96 games (65 starts) with the Detroit Lions (2014-16), Patriots (2016-19, 2021) and Miami Dolphins (2020).

The Patriots also ruled out kicker Quinn Nordin (abdomen). He was a healthy scratch against the Dolphins as veteran Nick Folk handled the kicking duties.

New England listed offensive tackles Trent Brown (calf) and Yodny Cajuste (hamstring), linebacker Ronnie Perkins (shoulder) and tight end Jonnu Smith (hip) as questionable. Brown practiced in a limited role Friday after sitting out the previous two days.

Linebacker Jamien Sherwood (ankle) is doubtful for the Jets. New York also listed receivers Keelan Cole (knee) and Jamison Crowder (groin), offensive lineman Chuma Edoga (non-COVID illness) and cornerback Isaiah Dunn (shoulder) as questionable.
