Following the cancelation of Friday’s practice due to a reported positive Covid-19 test, the New England Patriots have listed four as questionable to face the Denver Broncos.
That list includes right guard Shaq Mason and left tackle Isaiah Wynn. Both starting offensive linemen, combining for 478 snaps this season, would have remained limited due to calf issues.
Here’s the final injury report heading into the rescheduled 1 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday at Gillette Stadium.
- Patriots: no players listed
- Broncos: WR K.J. Hamler (hamstring), LB Jeremiah Attaochu (quad)
The Patriots have placed center James Ferentz, who practiced in full Thursday, on the Covid-19 reserve list, as reported by NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero.
Hamler and Attaochu remained sidelined for Friday’s Broncos practice. Both the wide receiver and the outside linebacker had been listed as out prior to the game’s postponement in Week 5 with hamstring and quad injuries, respectively.
- Patriots: WR Julian Edelman (knee), OT Isaiah Wynn (calf), G Shaq Mason (calf), DT Adam Butler (shoulder)
- Broncos: QB Drew Lock (right shoulder), RB Melvin Gordon (illness), TE Noah Fant (ankle), DT Mike Purcell (knee)
New England’s limited and questionable remain unchanged. All but Mason had been active versus the Kansas City Chiefs earlier in October. And after two days listed as a non-participant for non-injury reasons, the Patriots removed defensive end Deatrich Wise from the final report.
As for the Broncos, Lock logged three full practices and is questionable to start against the Patriots. Denver’s quarterback hasn’t played since suffering an injury to his throwing shoulder on Sept. 20. Also among the 50-50 is Gordon, who was charged with driving under the influence late Tuesday night and was sent home Friday due to an illness. But fellow Broncos rusher Phillip Lindsay goes without a game designation for Week 6. The back-to-back 1,000-yard back last played in Denver’s season opener because of a toe injury.
