Week 15 Patriots vs Broncos: Wednesday injury report; Malcolm Butler among six limited

New England and Denver released their first injury reports of the week earlier today.

Two days after their 30-23 victory over the Baltimore Ravens, the New England Patriots have turned the page to week 15. The team returned to the practice fields today to start preparing for its upcoming opponent, the defending world champion Denver Broncos.

The Patriots started their week with a walkthrough and the following players were listed on the injury report afterwards:

WR Danny Amendola (Ankle): Did not participate

TE Martellus Bennett (Ankle/Shoulder): Limited participation

CB Malcolm Butler (Hip): Limited participation

SS Jordan Richards (Knee): Limited participation

LB Elandon Roberts (Hamstring): Limited participation

CB Eric Rowe (Hamstring): Limited participation

WR Matthew Slater (Foot): Limited participation

When comparing today's injury report to the last one released prior to last week's game, one difference stands out: the addition of Malcolm Butler. The Patriots' number one cornerback suffered a hip injury against the Ravens but after sitting out one play was able to finish the game. It seems as if New England is simply playing it safe and therefore limited his participation today.

The rest of the team's report looks the way it did last week. While Danny Amendola will miss Sunday's game, the other players have decent shots to make the trip to Colorado and play against the Broncos.

Denver's injury report looks as follows:

LB Todd Davis (Rib cage): Did not participate

LS Casey Kreiter (Calf): Did not participate

LB Brandon Marshall (Hamstring): Did not participate

OT Russell Okung (Not injury related): Did not participate

OC Matt Paradis (Hip): Did not participate

TE A.J. Derby (Groin): Full participation

WR Bennie Fowler (Knee): Full participation

LB Corey Nelson (Finger): Full participation

QB Trevor Simian (Foot): Full participation

CB Aqib Talib (Back): Full participation

LB DeMarcus Ware (Thigh): Full participation
