New England released its final injury report of the 2015 regular season today. Let's take a look at it.

In two days, the New England Patriots will play the Miami Dolphins, trying to end the regular season a high note while simultaneously earning homefield advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. However, given the banged-up state of the roster, the team will have to play without some of its most important members.

Let's take a look at today's injury report:

CB Justin Coleman (Concussion): OUT

WR Julian Edelman (Foot): OUT

LB Jonathan Freeny (Hand): OUT

LB Dont'a Hightower (Knee): OUT

DE Chandler Jones (Abdomen/Toe): OUT

OT Sebastian Vollmer (Ankle): OUT

WR Danny Amendola (Knee): QUESTIONABLE

TE Scott Chandler (Knee): QUESTIONABLE

SS Patrick Chung (Foot): QUESTIONABLE

OG Josh Kline (Shoulder): QUESTIONABLE

WR Brandon LaFell (Foot): QUESTIONABLE

FS Devin McCourty (Ankle): QUESTIONABLE

DE Rob Ninkovich (Shin): QUESTIONABLE

DT Sealver Siliga (Not Injury Related): QUESTIONABLE

OT LaAdrian Waddle (Shoulder): QUESTIONABLE

Defensive end Chandler Jones, who was limited during yesterday's session because of a recently suffered toe injury, will not play on Sunday and is the lone surprise on the list of those declared "out". With the Patriots' first playoff game two weeks away, Jones' status is worth keeping a close eye on. After all, he is one of New England's most valuable defenders against both the pass and the run.

Despite Sebastian Vollmer and Justin Coleman being the only players to miss all practices this week, it does not come as a surprise that Justin Coleman, Julian Edelman and Dont'a Hightower - given their importance to the team - join them and Jones on the list of inactives. New England needs to downgrade one more player before the game.

Because the Patriots have already locked up a wild-card bye, the players listed as questionable (possibly except Siliga) will probably play on a limited snap count.
