Patriots Injury Report: Tom Brady, Chandler Jones, Brandon Browne

By on 11/01/2014 11:31:00 PM

When the New England Patriots and the Denver Broncos take the field tomorrow, not only will the game showcase two of the league’s best teams, as fans we will get to witness two of the greatest quarterbacks of our generation: 

The Patriots final Week 9 Injury Report provided fans with all they wanted to know: will Tom Brady be healthy enough to play? Now, being that this is Tom Brady we are talking about, there should have been no questioning his status against the Broncos. Did you really think he was going to miss another chance to beat the great Peyton Manning? I don’t think so. Brady should be a lock for tomorrow after participating in all of the team’s practices this week. 

CB Brandon Browner (ankle) is considered probable for tomorrow’s tilt against the Broncos. Browner participated in full practices all week, which is always a good sign. 

The Patriots have four players listed as questionable for tomorrow: DL Dominique Easley (knee), DB Nate Ebner (finger), OL Cameron Fleming (finger), and WR Matthew Slater (shoulder). In the NFL, questionable normally means that a player has a 50/50 chance of playing. Judging by the fact that all four were able to participate in light drills all week, call it a hunch but I’m thinking that at least two of these guys will take the field tomorrow. Can I say for certain which two? Nope! If I could I would, but if I could I probably would be working for the NFL or the government. I’m sure they would love a telepath. 

Now the one player I can tell you for certain won’t be playing is DE Chandler Jones (hip). The defensive end was a DNP all week and on Friday it was announced that the 24-year-old would not be in the lineup tomorrow. Realistically, given all the players that likely will play, knowing that only one won’t should give fans something to smile about. 

The Patriots and Broncos are set to lock horns tomorrow at 4:25 PM EST at the Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. If you can only have time for one game or are only allowed to watch one game on Sundays, I would implore that sit back and enjoy this one.
