Between the Patriots and Dolphins, 23 players are listed as questionable for Sunday’s matchup in Miami. However, neither team has ruled any players out.
The Patriots list of 14 questionable players is highlighted by two of their top three corners. J.C. Jackson (knee) and Jonathan Jones (neck) were both limited all week.
For New England, multiple players are also questionable at defensive tackle (Adam Butler, Byron Cowart), offensive tackle (Jermaine Eluemunor, Justin Herron), and running back (Damien Harris, James White, J.J. Taylor) where Sony Michel will be the only fully-healthy option on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Miami listed a number of their key offensive weapons. Wide receivers DeVante Parker (hamstring) and Jakeem Grant (hamstring) were both limited all week, while tight end Mike Gesicki (shoulder) will try to play after missing practice on Wednesday. Former Patriots linebackers Kyle Van Noy (hip) and Elandon Roberts (chest) are also questionable.
However, Miami will have their starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (ankle) fully healthy after some questions about his availability earlier in the week. Starting cornerback Xavien Howard (shoulder) is also expected to be good to go.
Of course, it’s possible both teams could rule players out between when the final injury reports are released and Sunday at 1 p.m.. Keep checking in with 985TheSportsHub.com for updates.
