AFC East Week 12 injury report

By James Walker

Here is the final injury report for Week 12 in the AFC East:

Buffalo Bills (5-5) at New York Jets (5-5), Sunday at 1 p.m. ET

Bills

Out: RB Fred Jackson (fibula), WR Donald Jones (ankle), K Rian Lindell (shoulder), CB Terrence McGee (knee), WR Naaman Roosevelt (shoulder), S George Wilson (neck)

Probable: T Demetrius Bell (shoulder), WR Steve Johnson (shoulder), WR David Nelson (illness)

Jets

Questionable: WR Jeremy Kerley (knee), RB LaDainian Tomlinson (knee)

Probable: DT Mike Devito (knee), DT Marcus Dixon (shoulder), DT Kenrick Ellis (ankle), T D'Brickashaw Ferguson (ankle), RB Shonn Greene (rib), LB David Harris (groin), T Wayne Hunter (hamstring), C Nick Mangold (ankle), TE Matthew Mulligan (hip), LB Calvin Pace (groin), S Brodney Pool (knee), RB Bilal Powell (illness), QB Mark Sanchez (neck), G Matt Slauson (knee)

Analysis: The big news in this game obviously is Jackson. The Bills will have to do without a player who accounted for about 40 percent of the team's offense for the rest of the season. Backup and former first-round pick C.J. Spiller will get his first start of the season at running back. Kerley and Tomlinson also are needed for New York for depth purposes. Both are backups but play important roles in the offense.

New England Patriots (7-3) at Philadelphia Eagles (4-6), Sunday at 4:15 p.m. ET

Patriots

Out: LB Dane Fletcher (thumb), LB Brandon Spikes (knee)

Questionable: WR Deion Branch (hip), S Patrick Chung (foot), G Dan Connolly (groin), LB Gary Guyton (shoulder), S James Ihedigbo (shoulder), T Matt Light (ankle), CB Devin McCourty (shoulder), WR Chad Ochocinco (hamstring), WR Taylor Price (hamstring), WR Matt Slater (shoulder), T Sebastian Vollmer (back)

Eagles

Out: T King Dunlap (concussion)

Doubtful: WR Jeremy Maclin (hamstring, shoulder)

Questionable: CB Nnamdi Asomugha (knee), CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle), QB Michael Vick (ribs)

Analysis: The Patriots have a lot of players questionable, which is par for the course the past few weeks. One of the new players is starting left tackle Light, who had his ankle rolled up on Monday. The injury looked more serious than it turned out to be and the Patriots are hopeful he can play. The Eagles don't have as many injuries. Starting quarterback Michael Vick is questionable after missing last week's game. Philadelphia No. 1 corner Asomugha also injured his knee in practice this week and is questionable. Asomugha would be a big loss against New England's high-powered passing attack.
