BOSTON (CBS) — The Patriots’ final injury report in preparation for Sunday’s Week 2 matchup with the Miami Dolphins includes quite a few big names.

Linebacker Dont’a Hightower was listed as doubtful after missing practice all week due to a knee injury. Cornerback Malcolm Butler, tight end Rob Gronkowski, receiver Chris Hogan and tackle Nate Solder headline the list of nine players listed as questionable. Also on that list are Marcus Cannon, Jonathan Cooper, Trey Flowers, Shaq Mason and Shea McClellin.

Cornerback Eric Rowe was listed as out due to an ankle injury.

Under the new guidelines, “doubtful” simply meansĀ  unlikely to play, while “questionable” vaguely means “uncertain as to whether the player will play.” So you can expect a number of game-time decisions come Sunday afternoon.
