No Major Injuries
Green, Thomas No Longer Listed
Man, it's really nice to have a short injury list for once. However, in a game like this, every little thing counts. New England has one key player on each side of the line listed as questionable. Starting guard right Stephen Neal is nursing a shoulder and second-string defensive end Mike Wright has a sore knee.
Neal is the real concern. If he can't go, you could see Russ Hochstein or Billy Yeats move from the left side. Tight end David Thomas who has yet to play since breaking his foot in training camp. Defensive end Jarvis Green, who missed parts of practice Wednesday and Thursday with a bad shoulder, is now off the report.
