Patriots have several key players banged up

November 30, 2017

As several Bills still haven’t practiced this week, the Patriots are dealing with some important injuries of their own as the two teams prepare to play Sunday in Orchard Park.

Here’s the injury report for both teams following Thursday’s practices:

DNP - Did Not Practice
LP - Limited Practice
FP - Full Practice

DiMarco is a new addition to the Bills’ report after fully participating in Wednesday’s practice, but head coach Sean McDermott said his ankle injury doesn’t appear to be serious.

Missing two straight days with a back injury doesn’t sound promising for tight end Nick O’Leary’s chances to play.  If he can’t go, the team would most likely keep Logan Thomas active Sunday.  He’s been inactive the past two games.

For New England, although the final injury status for the game won’t come out until Friday afternoon, Brady is fully expected to play.  This is the second week in a row he was held out of Wednesday’s session with his Achilles injury, as they try to give him an extra day to rest it.

According to, the pickup this week of linebacker Nicholas Grigsby off the Ravens’ practice squad might be a sign that the team is concerned about Reilly’s status and the overall depth at linebacker headed into Sunday.

Hogan and Cannon have each missed the team’s last three games.
