Patriots-Bills Injury Report


The New England Patriots and the Buffalo Bills have released their injury reports for Sunday’s game, and luckily Tom Brady’s flu symptoms have subsided. However, S James Sanders is the latest Patriot to come down with flu-like symptoms this week and is questionable for the game. While the depth is strong at the safety position, losing Sanders would be a blow to the secondary because he has been the leader of the secondary this year and is a sure tackler, a factor that will be important in stopping the Bills’ running back Fred Jackson. Sanders is one of eight players listed as “Questionable” for Sunday’s game, including Tully Banta-Cain, Jermaine Cunningham, Ron Brace, and Aaron Hernandez. RG Dan Connolly, famous for his 71-yard kick return that garnered him AFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors and a display at the Patriots’ Hall of Fame, is listed as “Doubtful” after suffering from a concussion last Sunday night. The top candidates to start in his spot are Ryan Wendell and Quinn Ojinnaka.
