According to the Boston Globe, tight end Jake Ballard has fallen behind both Zach Sudfield and Daniel Fells on the depth chart so far.

Pay attention to Zach Sudfeld, Jake Ballard, and Daniel Fells. Which of the three will get the start? And how will they perform. Sudfeld has looked fantastic in practices. But Fells has quietly had a solid training camp this offseason. Ballard, who has looked stiff at times, has fallen behind in the team’s competition. We’ll know more after the first game.

This isn’t a surprise.  Ballard is still having a hard time coming back from microfracture surgery.
