The New England Patriots have released their final injury report for the week. Four players missed practice on Friday: TE Rob Gronkowski (back), SS Jordan Richards (knee), WR Matthew Slater (foot), and DT Woodrow Hamilton (illness).
Gronkowski and Richards have been declared out, while Hamilton’s availability likely hinges on whether or not starting DT Alan Branch is suspended.
TE Martellus Bennett (ankle/shoulder)
QB Tom Brady (knee)
DB Nate Ebner (concussion)
WR Julian Edelman (foot)
WR Chris Hogan (back)
WR Matthew Slater (foot)
DT Woodrow Hamilton (illness)
DE Trey Flowers (shin)
LB Elandon Roberts (jaw)
TE Rob Gronkowski (back)
SS Jordan Richards (knee)
Roberts is a new addition to the report with a jaw injury. Ebner returned to practice, while Slater received the day off.
Brady, Edelman, and Hogan should all be available, as should Bennett, if only in a limited capacity. Bennett reinjured his ankle and hurt his shoulder against the Jets.
Gronkowski underwent surgery for his back on Friday.
The Rams have five players on their injury report. WR Tavon Austin (chest) is doubtful after not practicing all week. DE Robert Quinn (concussion) didn’t practice either, but is considered questionable. C Tim Barnes (Foot) and G Rodger Saffold (hand) returned to practice on Friday and are questionable. OT Andrew Donnal (hip) is also questionable.
