The New England Patriots released their second injury report of the week ahead of their game against the Minnesota Vikings. Tight end Dwayne Allen, who suffered a knee injury against the Tennessee Titans, returned to the practice field to give the Patriots full attendance.

That said, a certain tight end found his way back on the report.
Here’s the injury report:
Did Not Participate
Vikings: WR Chad Beebe (hamstring), WR Stefon Diggs (knee), TE David Morgan (knee), CB Xavier Rhodes (hamstring)
The Patriots have full attendance, while the Vikings are still missing the same four players as yesterday.
The availability of both Rhodes and Diggs, two of the most important Vikings players, on Sunday should now be in question, even as Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer says “there is a good chance” Rhodes will play.
Patriots: TE Dwayne Allen (knee), QB Tom Brady (knee), DB Nate Ebner (knee), TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle/back)
Vikings: CB Mackensie Alexander, LB Ben Gedeon (concussion), WR Adam Thielen (calf)
Allen still might not be available on Sunday, but his presence is a good sign for the final stretch of the season.
Alexander is a new addition for the Vikings and now the Vikings’ #1 and #3 cornerbacks are on the injury report. That should play to the Patriots’ favor.
Patriots: WR Julian Edelman (foot)
Vikings: OG Tom Compton (knee), LB Eric Kendricks (chest), OG Mike Remmers (low back)
These players should all be available on Sunday.
