Patriots release injury report ahead of Sunday’s AFC Championship Game

Sixteen players are listed as questionable ahead of the New England Patriots’ AFC Championship Game matchup Sunday against the Denver Broncos.

In the injury report, released Friday afternoon, five others were listed as probable after full participation at practice on Friday. No players were listed as out or doubtful.

Wide receivers Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman, and special teams guru Matthew Slater were listed as questionable, as was tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Scott Chandler. All were suffering from knee, foot, or shin injuries but participated in practice in some capacity all week.

Only Slater missed practice this week; he was absent on Wednesday.

Additionally, offensive linemen Tre’ Jackson, Bryan Stork, Sebastian Vollmer and LaAdrian Waddle were listed as questionable.

Defensively, linebackers Jamie Collins, Darius Fleming, Jonathon Freeny, and Dont’a Hightower were all listed as questionable. Fleming appeared on the injury report for the first time following a story reported earlier this week in which he rescued a woman from a car by kicking in the window. He later needed 22 stitches for a cut he received on his leg.

Defensive back Nate Ebner and defensive ends Chandler Jones and Rob Ninkovich were also listed as questionable.

Tom Brady, Patrick Chung, Josh Kline, Brandon LaFell, and Devin McCourty were all listed on the injury report as "probable."

For the Broncos, Peyton Manning was among 11 players listed on the injury report. There was no report on their status, but all players had full participation earlier in the week.
