New England Patriots vs. Houston Texans Injury Report

Once again, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has managed to troll the NFL with another interesting injury report. This time, he went above and beyond the call of duty by taking 15 players off of the list and leaving only five on the injury report. One of the notable names cut from the report? Rob Ninkovich, who was taken out of the Pats last game due to a hip injury. Belichick just keeps getting better and better at this, and I find it to be friggin’ hilarious.

Nobody missed practice for the Patriots over the last few sessions, so none of these guys will be missing the first playoff game. I don’t anticipate any absences for the Houston Texans either, as everyone on their injury report is listed probable.
