Three Patriots rookies to start on the active/non-football injury list

The Patriots placed three rookies on the active/non-football list Wednesday, according to the league wire.

With training camp a week away, running back Rhamondre Stevenson (4th round), linebacker Cameron McGrone (5th round) and safety Joshuah Bledsoe aren’t cleared for practice. But they can come off the active/NFI let at any time.

Both McGrone (knee) and Bledsoe (wrist) were dealing with injuries. It’s unknown if Stevenson suffered an injury during minicamp last month, but running backs coach Ivan Fears said the rookie back was fighting through “a couple of nagging” things. All three still count against the 90-man roster.

Rookies reported Tuesday ahead of next week’s start to training camp.
