On Thursday afternoon, the team made an official decision on the rookie wide receiver.

Patriots put Thornton on injured reserve,

This means he will be out for at least the first four games of the season.

"Patriots put second-round WR Tyquan Thornton on IR,

That means he's out for at least 4 games," ESPN's Field Yates said.

The Patriots picked Thornton in the middle of the second round during the 2022 NFL Draft.

While at the boiler, Thornton had 143 receptions for 2,242 yards and 19 touchdowns.

For now he will have to wait for him to make an impact at the NFL level.
