BOSTON (CBS) — With an extra week to heal and rest, you’d think the Patriots would be generally healthy heading into Sunday’s game against the Bills. A quick glance at Friday’s injury report would tell you that you’re wrong.
In addition to three players being listed as out, the Patriots listed 14 players as questionable. Included in that questionable bunch are Rob Gronkowski (hip), Wes Welker (ankle), Aaron Hernandez (ankle), Dont’a Hightower (hamstring), Brandon Lloyd (knee), Jerod Mayo (elbow), Sebastian Vollmer (back/knee) and Logan Mankins (calf/hip).
Of that group, only Hernandez missed the Patriots’ last game in Week 8 against the Rams.
Julian Edelman and Kyle Love were listed as probable for Sunday.
The three Patriots who are out are Brandon Bolden, Tracy White and Trevor Scott. Bolden was suspended four games earlier Friday for violating the league’s drug policy.
For the Bills, former Patriot Mark Anderson will not play, while Stevie Johnson and Kyle Williams were among six players listed as questionable. C.J. Spiller and Mario Williams were listed as probable.
