The New England Patriots cleaned up their final injury report of week 16 and they made a couple roster moves. The team signed DL Ufoma Kamalu from the practice squad and added OL Tony Adams to the practice squad.

Kamalu should be able to help New England’s weak run defense down the final stretch. Adams played both center and guard at N.C. State and lined up with Joe Thuney in both 2014 and 2015.

Some good news for the Patriots: both WR Cordarrelle Patterson (illness) and TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle/back) were removed from the injury report on Friday.


Bills: CB Ryan Lewis (concussion)

Lewis was going to be a long shot to play.


Patriots: LB Brandon King (knee)

Bills: RB Chris Ivory (shoulder)

Special teams ace Brandon King was the only Patriots player listed on the injury report. Ivory is the Bills back-up running back and could make his return as he was a full participant in practice both Thursday and Friday.

Buffalo listed nine players as “full participants” at practice on Friday, although none were provide a game status distinction and should be expected to play. This include running back LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and defensive tackle Kyle Williams (back).
