The New England Patriots have released their official Friday injury report heading into Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts. 20 players are listed in total, with one doubtful, 16 questionable, and three probable. On the bright side, a lot of those players on the injury report as part of Bill Belichick’s regular game against opposing coaches, and there is also the good news that nobody has been ruled out yet. However, key players Logan Mankins and Aaron Hernandez are not expected to play against the Colts.
This injury report can also be read on the Boston Herald.
LG Logan Mankins (ankle, calf)
SS Patrick Chung (shoulder, hamstring)
TE Rob Gronkowski (hip)
TE Aaron Hernandez (ankle)
FS Steve Gregory (hip)
WR Deion Branch (hamstring)
RT Sebastian Vollmer (back, knee)
WR Wes Welker (ankle)
LB Tracy White (foot)- We may finally get to see him continue to make solid tackles on special teams after being out for a large chunk of time.
LB Dont’a Hightower (hamstring)
WR Brandon Lloyd (knee)
RG Dan Connolly (back)- It’s good to see that he practiced today and has a good shot at playing after being injured early last week. It would be terrible to lose both starting guards for an extended period of time.
LB Brandon Spikes (knee)
DE Trevor Scott (hamstring)
DT Ron Brace (elbow)
OL Nick McDonald (shoulder)
CB Malcolm Williams (thigh)
WR Julian Edelman (hand)
