McCourty finished the 2016 regular season with 83 tackles and a pick over the course of 16 games.

EDGE Analysis

McCourty, who the Patriots selected 27th overall in the 2010 NFL draft, serves as the team's starting free safety and is in line to remain a mainstay in the New England secondary for the next few seasons, as he is under contract with the franchise through the 2019 campaign.

During the 2015 regular season, McCourty was on the field for 84.7 percent of the Patriots' defensive snaps, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

McCourty and Patrick Chung -- who both remain under contract heading into 2016 -- served as the Patriots' starting safeties, with Reiss noting that McCourty saw much of his work "in the center field-type role" with Chung "often playing in the box and offering quality run support." In the process, McCourty recorded 64 tackles in 14 games, though his IDP utility was capped by the fact that he recorded just one pick in that span.

McCourty (ankle) was limited at practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

McCourty continues to recover from a high ankle sprain that has kept him out of the past two games. Although he was limited in practice all week leading up to Week 16's game against the Jets, McCourty was eventually downgraded to out, so his status heading into Sunday's upcoming matchup with the Dolphins is questionable at best.

McCourty (ankle) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

McCourty appeared to be in position to play after practicing on a limited basis all week, but his ankle injury will not allow him to take the field in Week 16. Tavon Wilson is next in line at the free safety position for the Patriots.

McCourty (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

McCourty is recovering from a high ankle sprain, so his Week 16 status figures to be a game-time decision. If he is out again this week, Duron Harmon would once again be in line to see added snaps at safety for the Patriots as a result.

McCourty (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

The absence of McCourty, who has notched 57 tackles and a pick through 13 games to date, will represent a hit to the Patriots' passing defense Sunday, with Duron Harmon in line to see added snaps as a result.

McCourty (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

McCourty is believed to be dealing with a high-ankle sprain and it's been reported that he will likely miss at least one game. He did, however, return to the practice field Friday, albeit in a limited capacity. Still, it seems unlikely that the Patriots would take any risks here, even with McCourty undoubtedly disappointed to potentially miss a game against his brother's team.

McCourty will likely miss time with what is believed to be a high ankle sprain, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Patriots have not provided an official update on McCourty's status, but if he is indeed dealing with a high ankle sprain, he will likely be held out this week, and possibly beyond. While McCourty may spend some time on the sidelines in the near future, he is expected to be healthy by the time the playoffs roll around.
