It appears Malcolm Mitchell's season is officially over.

Mitchell has been on injured reserve since the preseason, but there was some optimism that he could return for the playoffs due to him practicing with his Patriots teammates. However, he was not at practice today, which pretty much put his season to bed.

The Patriots would have needed to activate him off injured reserve by 4 p.m. today in order for him to return to the active roster.

Additionally, cornerback Jonathan Jones was held out of practice and looks to be headed to injured reserve.
