American football wide receiver Jakobi Meyers was born on November 9, 1996. He currently plays for the New England Patriots of the National Football League (NFL). He attended NC State for collegiate football and then joined the Patriots as an undrafted free agent in 2019.
Jakobi Meyers Injury
Wide receiver Jakobi Meyers has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers due to a knee injury, removing one of the New England Patriots’ key offensive weapons.
On Saturday, the Patriots revealed that Meyers was now listed as out, down from questionable on Friday. Due to his ongoing knee issue, the receiver sat out last week’s matchup with the Baltimore Ravens.
When on the field so far this season, Meyers has been one of the Patriots’ most consistent receivers and a major threat to opposing defenses (though Jones has already been ruled out for the game with an ankle injury). However, New England’s passing offense has suffered without Meyers because of his ongoing ailment.

Nelson Agholor, DeVante Parker, Kendrick Bourne, and Lil’Jordan Humphrey are some of the receivers that could benefit from more playing time with Meyers sidelined.
Jakobi Meyers, a wide receiver with the New England Patriots, is questionable to play after sitting out last week’s game due to injury. Meyers has a knee problem that needs attention. It’s true that he only partially participated in Wednesday and Friday’s practices.
He was sick for two days last week, and the Patriots decided to bench him for the game. Meyers’ status for this week is now in doubt. The Patriots will play the Packers in Green Bay on the road in the late afternoon of Sunday.
In the Patriots’ 30-27 victory, he had a hand in the game-winning 51-yard field goal by Nick Folk, one of his 12 receptions for 169 receiving yards. Meyers had the most receiving yards (59) and passing touchdown (24) for the Patriots in their 23-17 Week 10 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on NBC’s Sunday Night Football.
Meyers caught seven passes for 111 yards and one touchdown in Week 15’s loss against the Miami Dolphins, a 22-12 setback. Meyers caught five passes for 57 yards against the New York Jets in Week 17, and he also threw a touchdown pass to quarterback Cam Newton from 19 yards out on a reverse trick play.
The final score was 28-14, a victory for the Patriots. While Meyers failed to record a single touchdown reception all season, he did end with 59 catches for 729 yards and threw for two scores.
Meyers caught his first touchdown throw from Brian Hoyer, 11 yards away, in the fourth quarter of Week 10’s 45-7 victory over the Cleveland Browns. To begin his career, Meyers held the modern NFL record for receptions (134) and receiving yards (1,560) without a touchdown.
In the season’s final game, Meyers grabbed a 4-yard touchdown pass from Mac Jones to cap off a day in which he caught all 8 of his targets for 73 yards in a victory over the Jaguars.
Meyers ended his third season with many career highs, including the most receptions (83), and receiving yards (981). He set a new season best with a 70-yard performance in the season finale against the Dolphins.
