The New England Patriots practiced inside Gillette Stadium on Thursday, and with a full active roster present.

But six members of the 12-4 Patriots remained limited participants. All six have since been ruled questionable for Saturday’s AFC wild-card matchup with the 9-7 Tennessee Titans. And starting right tackle Marcus Cannon, who’d been listed as partial participant for the past two weeks because of an ankle injury, isn’t one of them.

Here’s the final injury report ahead of the 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff in Foxborough.

OUT

  • Patriots: no players listed
  • Titans: WR Adam Humphries (ankle)

No Patriot has been ruled out for the meeting between the No. 3 and No. 6 seeds.

But the Titans will be without Humphries against New England due to an ankle injury that saw the wideout miss the last four games of December. Humphries did not return to practice this week. He returned 12 punts and caught 37 passes for 374 yards with two touchdowns during his initial regular season in Tennessee, after arriving on a four-year, $36 million deal.

QUESTIONABLE

  • Patriots: WR Julian Edelman (knee/shoulder), LB Ja’Whaun Bentley (knee), LB Jamie Collins (shoulder), CB Jason McCourty (groin), CB Jonathan Jones (groin), S Terrence Brooks (groin)
  • Titans: WR Kalif Raymond (concussion), WR Cody Hollister (ankle), S Dane Cruikshank, (illness)

All six of New England’s questionable received the same game status ahead of Week 17 against the Miami Dolphins. Only a pair of defensive backs in McCourty and Brooks, both dealing with groin injuries, were inactive for the December finale. Another in Jones made his return during New England’s 27-24 loss to Miami after missing one game with a groin injury of his own.

As for Tennessee, Cruikshank marked the lone addition to the injury report on Thursday. The safety and core special-teamer practiced in a limited capacity because of an illness. But right tackle Jack Conklin, linebacker Daren Bates and cornerback Adoree’ Jackson all avoided an official designation for the wild-card round. Conklin and Bates were limited earlier in the week due to knee and shoulder ailments, respectively, while Jackson is set to make his return to a Tennessee secondary that he’d started 10 of 11 games in this campaign. Jackson suffered a foot injury on Dec. 1, yet practiced in full as the calendar turned to January.
