The Patriots did not hold a formal practice on Tuesday. However, with their upcoming Wild Card game against Buffalo just four days away, the team did release an injury report per league protocol. As is the case when teams don’t practice on an injury report mandated day, the team released an estimated list of player participation. This is typically used when holidays like Thanksgiving or Christmas fall late in the week during the regular season.

Had the Patriots practiced on Tuesday, the team estimated perfect attendance with 12 players listed as limited participants. That’s notable, with left tackle Isaiah Wynn (hip/ankle) and defensive tackle Christian Barmore (knee) leaving Sunday’s game early. Barmore’s injury look particularly concerning, but reports on Monday indicated he dodged a major injury.

Defensive lineman Lawrence Guy (shoulder) and linebacker Brandon King (toe) are both listed after not appearing on the injury report last week. Both finished Sunday’s game.

The eight other players are all reappearing on the report from last week. They are running back Damien Harris (hamstring), wide receiver Jakobi Meyers (thigh), center David Andrews (shoulder), linebacker Dont’a Hightower (knee), safeties Adrian Phillips (knee) Kyle Dugger (hand) and Cody Davis (wrist), and kicker Nick Folk (left knee).

As for the Bills, they held a walkthrough practice on Tuesday. Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (knee) and defensive end Efe Obada (ankle) were both listed as full participants.
