Ian Rapoport is reporting that Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell had a procedure (but not surgery) on his knee to speed up his rehab. Rapoport adds that the Patriots are clearly trying to trade Mitchell. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)
Mitchell has been plagued by injuries since entering the league. After a few flashes on the field, his value has essentially evaporated. Mitchell has no place on seasonal rosters, and is becoming a quick cut candidate on dynasty formats. His only real hope at this point is if the Patriots find a trade partner or he gets cut and signs elsewhere.
