The New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills released their final injuries reports for week 16 and there were no changes on the Patriots side. Six players on the Bills that were listed on the report were not given a game status and are expected to be available to play.

Here’s the full report.


Patriots: DL Alan Branch (knee), RB Rex Burkhead (knee)

Bills: WR Andre Holmes (neck)

Ricky Jean-Francois will join Malcom Brown and Lawrence Guy on the Patriots defensive front as they have to stop potent Bills running back LeSean McCoy. Burkhead’s inactivity opens the door for Mike Gillislee to have his first revenge game of 2017, as he was inactive for both games against the Miami Dolphins and the first round against the Bills.


Patriots: RB Brandon Bolden (groin), WR Chris Hogan (shoulder), DB Brandon King hamstring), DL Eric Lee (ankle), WR Matthew Slater (hamstring), LB Kyle Van Noy (calf), OT LaAdrian Waddle (ankle), RB James White (ankle)

Bills: WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee), CB E.J. Gaines (knee), OG John Miller (ankle), TE Nick O’Leary (back), DT Kyle Williams (groin)

All of these players should be game-time decisions.
