A full 53-man roster would be on the New England Patriots’ practice fields Friday.

Starting left tackle Isaiah Wynn returned as a full participant after missing New England’s previous practice due to an eye issue, while a total of seven Patriots were limited.

And the limited, which continue to include 1,000-yard receiver Julian Edelman and starting center Ted Karras, are now officially questionable to play Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Here’s the final injury report for the 1 p.m. ET kickoff at Paul Brown Stadium.


  • Patriots: no players listed
  • Bengals: WR A.J. Green (ankle), DT Renell Wren (hip)

The Patriots ruled out two ahead of last Sunday’s matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs. The aforementioned Karras and rookie defensive tackle Byron Cowart have been upgraded since then. Working back from an MCL sprain and a concussion, respectively, both were present for this week’s practices in a partial capacity.

But Green, the Bengals’ perennial Pro Bowl wideout, will not make his 2019 debut against the Patriots. And as for Wren, the rookie defensive lineman out of Arizona State will also be missing after a hip injury saw him sit out Cincinnati’s last two sessions.


  • Patriots: WR Julian Edelman (knee/shoulder), WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle), C Ted Karras (knee), DT Danny Shelton (shoulder), DT Byron Cowart (concussion), LB Ja’Whaun Bentley (knee), CB Jason McCourty (groin)
  • Bengals: CB Darqueze Dennard (illness)

The Patriots removed quarterback Tom Brady and rookie wide receiver N’Keal Harry from the report to close the week. Brady had been listed as a full participant while managing an injury to his throwing elbow, and Harry had practiced in full while dealing with a hip injury. Also unlisted is New England’s 24-year-old tackle, Wynn, following a one-day absence.

The lone Bengal ruled questionable for Week 15 resides in the secondary. Dennard did not practice on Friday because of an illness, but former first-round wideout John Ross and defensive end Sam Hubbard were a full-go. Ross began the week as a limited participant due to a foot injury, and Hubbard had missed his first start of the season last week due to a knee injury.
