Round 2 Patriots vs Broncos: Injury Report

New, comments

The final injury report has been released for Saturday's game:

Broncos:

Out (0% chance of playing):

WR Eric Decker - Tebow's 2nd favorite receiver as of late. Big loss for the Broncos.

LS Lonie Paxton - Out for personal reasons. Best of luck to the former Patriot. Big hit to the Broncos special teams.

Doubtful (25%):

S Brian Dawkins - Team leader, but has missed time recently. Won't be much of a change from what the Patriots have already seen.

Quesionable (50%):

None

Probable (75%):

S David Bruton - Not an expected impact player.

DE Elvis Dumervil - If Doom is suffering an injury, the Patriots offensive line would be catching a huge break.

TE Daniel Fells - #1 TE, Fells has been used as a downfield threat despite his lack of speed. Versatile player.

OLB Von Miller - Still recovering from his hand injury.

Patriots:

Out (0% chance of playing):

None

Doubtful (25%):

None

Quesionable (50%):

CB Kyle Arrington - His foot has been bothering him all season; Tebow loves to throw to his left, which is right at Arrington. Match-up to watch.

OT Marcus Cannon - Hurt his ankle, wouldn't be surprised if Cannon is inactive.

S Pat Chung - Chung was removed from the list but was nicked up at practice on Thursday. Should play, but should be important to watch how he plays.

C Dan Connolly - Connolly should be at center as he's recovering from his groin injury.

LB Dane Fletcher - Fletcher is still recovering from his thumb injury. Look for him to play an important role against the Broncos.

S James Ihedigbo - Digs suffers from stingers and they're trying to take care of his shoulder.

G Logan Mankins - Depends on how his knee is holding up. Game time decision.

OLB Rob Ninkovich - Nink hurt his hip in Week 17 and sat for a lot of snaps. Interesting to see how he plays, especially because of how much trouble he had against the Broncos the first time around.

ST Matthew Slater - Slater's been bothered with his injury all season, just like Arrington.

ILB Brandon Spikes - Spikes is still recovering from his MCL injury. Hopefully he's able to help shore up the run defense.

OT Sebastian Vollmer - Vollmer's still dealing with back injuries. If he can play, the Patriots offensive line will be better prepared for heavy TE sets.

WR Wes Welker - Welker's knees have been brittle as of late after landing on it awkwardly a few weeks ago. He should play, but they're being careful with him.

LB Tracy White - Missed last week of the season with an abdominal issue. Wouldn't be surprised if he's inactive.

Probable (75%):

None

Should be a good game.
