Super Bowl LI Patriots vs Falcons: 7 Patriots questionable on Friday injury report

New, comments

The Patriots have a lengthy injury report.

The New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons have issued the final injury report prior to the Super Bowl and there are a total of 10 players on both teams.

Limited participation

TE Martellus Bennett (knee)

DT Alan Branch (toe)

SS Nate Ebner (concussion)

LB Dont’a Hightower (shoulder)

WR Chris Hogan (thigh)

WR Malcolm Mitchell (knee)

DT Vincent Valentine (back)

Every player participated at Friday’s practice, although seven Patriots were in a limited capacity. All of these players are expected to be available on Sunday, though, and the Patriots will need every single one of these players to have a big game.


The Falcons, on the other hand, have a smaller injury report.

Limited participation

DE Dwight Freeney (calf)

WR Julio Jones (toe)

OC Alex Mack (fibula)

All three players are expected to play, with Mack’s availability in the greatest jeopardy. Mack was seen working Atlanta’s back-up center off to the side during Falcons practice as preparation for a worst-case scenario.
