The 9-3 New England Patriots and the 4-8 Cleveland Browns are getting ready to do battle this weekend, and given that it is a Friday, both teams have released their initial injury reports for the game.

Each side is currently dealing with a significant amount of injuries, although since the Browns are virtually out of the playoff race, it is the Patriots that are really concerned about the health of their squad.

Wide receiver Aaron Dobson, and offensive lineman Marcus Cannon have been ruled out for the Pats, and quarterback Brandon Weeden has been the only Brown designated as being out for this contest. I would expect either newly signed wideout Austin Collie to take Dobson’s place for New England, or rookie Kenbrell Thompkins, who is currently dealing with an injury of his own. Will Svitek has played extremely well while Cannon has been out, and he will get another start at the right tackle position this Sunday. Jason Campbell is expected to start at quarterback for Cleveland.
