Door remains open for Patriots offense to get key players back
On Friday, the New England Patriots and New York Giants released their final injury reports of the week, which include game statuses. Coming off of the bye week, the Patriots appear to be healthier than the last time we saw them two weeks ago.
In total the Patriots have nine players listed on this week’s injury report. However none of the seven have been ruled out – all seven are questionable.
That group includes wide receiver DeVante Parker (concussion) and offensive tackle Trent Brown (ankle). Both players missed the last two games before the bye.
Offensive lineman Riley Reiff (knee), defensive lineman Deatrich Wise (shoulder), linebacker Ja’Whaun Bentley (hamstring), cornerback Jonathan Jones (knee), and special teamer Matthew Slater (ankle) are all also questionable. All seven questionable players were limited on Friday.
The Patriots did also remove two players from the injury report. Defensive lineman Christian Barmore (knee) and cornerback Myles Bryant (chest) are both now fully healthy.
On the other side, the Giants ruled out offensive lineman Evan Neal (ankle) for the game. Defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence (hamstring) – who has been arguably the best player on the Giants this season – is doubtful after not practicing this week.
