Patriots Injury Update: Brandon LaFell misses practice

By on 11/12/2014 11:34:00 AM

New England Patriots' wide receiver, Brandon LaFell, missed practice on Tuesday. He has a strep throat according to a source, as tweeted by Boston Herald Sports.

The status for the wide receiver is not yet known for Sunday night's game against the Indianapolis Colts. LaFell will receive treatment and be evaluated later in the week.

LaFell has really come on as of late, and not having him for Sunday would be a blow to the Patriots' offense. The recent weeks have shown that quarterback Tom Brady has developed trust with LaFell, which in turn has bumped his targets up. The wide receiver had 11 targets against the Chicago Bears and 13 against the Denver Broncos.

LaFell's numbers this year are 36 receptions for 514 yards and five touchdowns. This is LaFell's first year with the Patriots.

The status for LaFell will need to be monitored all week. This week's game against the Colts should be a great match-up, and I'm sure LaFell will do everything he can to be on the field.
