Patriots Players Nagged By Ongoing Injuries
Tight Ends, Offensive Linemen Among Concerns
New England Patriots tight ends Kyle Brady (foot) and Ben Watson (ankle) remain listed on the team's injury report. Both tight ends missed Sunday's win over Miami. Brady did not participated in Wednesday's practice, and Watson was limited.
Offensive linemen Stephen Neal and Billy Yates were also limited, while Nick Kaczur (foot) is a new addition and sat out practice.
Other newly listed players include running back Kyle Eckel (stomach), who missed practice, and safety Willie Andrews (elbow) who was limited.
Rodney Harrison, who was limited in practice, was listed last week, too, but he had a solid game Sunday.
For New York, starting running back Brandon Jacobs has practiced both days despite a lingering ankle injury, and rookie back Ahmad Bradshaw missed practice with a calf injury. Also, wide receiver Plaxico Burress continues to nurse an ankle injury.
New England released linebacker Chad Brown this afternoon, leaving an open roster spot, which may be filled by a specific need for Saturday.
The Patriots held a walk-through practice Wednesday and were not required to file an injury report.
