AFC East: injury report

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- New York Jets cornerback Ellis Lankster (jaw) was not at practice during the portion open to the media Tuesday. Lankster missed Sunday's game with a jaw injury suffered against Carolina on Dec. 15.

The Jets were also without tight end Kellen Winslow (knee) but that's part of his schedule. Winslow sits out Wednesdays because of chronic pain in his knee, and because of the holiday, Tuesday is serving as a Wednesday for the Jets' practice purposes.

The Jets are otherwise healthy. They didn't suffer any injuries in their 24-13 win against Cleveland on Sunday.

Injury report: No Kerley again

September, 10, 2013
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Wide receiver Jeremy Kerley (concussion) did not practice Tuesday and all signs point to him being inactive for Thursday's game against the Patriots. Kerley has not practiced the last two days after being hit in the head during Sunday's win against the Buccaneers.

AFC East Week 13 injury analysis

November, 30, 2012
The final injury reports are out for Week 13 in the AFC East.

Let’s take a look at who is expected to play and sit this weekend.

New England Patriots (8-3) at Miami Dolphins (5-6), Sunday at 1 p.m. ET

Patriots: The Patriots have masterfully overcome injuries this year. In this game alone, Pro Bowl tight end Rob Gronkowski (arm), Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins (ankle) and starting defensive end Chandler Jones (ankle) are out against Miami. The Patriots, as usual, have a ton of players questionable. This is head coach Bill Belichick’s way of keeping everyone guessing. Among the 15 questionable players this week are tight end Aaron Hernandez (ankle), receiver Wes Welker (ankle), right tackle Sebastian Vollmer (back) and receiver Brandon Lloyd (knee). Most, if not all, are expected to play.

Dolphins: The Dolphins are a healthy team entering this game. Fullback Jorvorskie Lane (knee) is the only player listed as questionable. There are eight players listed probable, including starting receiver Davone Bess (wrist), linebacker Karlos Dansby (bicep) and safety Reshad Jones (thumb).

Jacksonville Jaguars (2-9) at Buffalo Bills (4-7), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Jaguars: As expected, star tailback Maurice Jones-Drew remains out with a foot injury. He’s the only big name on Jacksonville’s injury report who won’t play. Rookie receiver Justin Blackmon (groin), defensive tackle Tyson Alualu (calf), receiver Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and cornerback Rashean Mathis (foot) are all probable.

Bills: Cornerbacks Aaron Williams (knee) and Justin Rogers (foot) are both questionable. Both players provide needed depth in the secondary. Buffalo also could have a depth issue at wide receiver if starting receiver Donald Jones (calf) is a scratch. Jones is listed as questionable.

Arizona Cardinals (4-7) at New York Jets (4-7), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Cardinals: Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb (ribs) is questionable, although Arizona is expected to start Ryan Lindley. Defensive end Calais Campbell (calf) and tailback Chris Wells (knee) are also questionable. Former Jets safety Kerry Rhodes (back), who should be motivated to return to New York, is listed probable.

Jets: Receiver Clyde Gates (concussion) is listed doubtful and not expected to play. The Jets also have four players listed questionable, which include defensive tackle Sione Pouha (back), corner Aaron Berry (quad), linebacker Ricky Sapp (ankle) and quarterback Tim Tebow (ribs). Jets head coach Rex Ryan says Tebow will be a game-time decision. However, ESPN’s Ed Werder reports that Tebow will sit this weekend.

Bills-Dolphins final injury report

November, 14, 2012
The Buffalo Bills will host the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night in a nationally televised game on the NFL Network.

Here is the final injury report and what it means for both AFC East teams:

Bills (3-6)

Out: CB Aaron Williams (ankle), RB Fred Jackson (concussion), DE Mark Anderson (knee), DE Chris Kelsay (neck)

Probable: DT Marcell Dareus (shoulder, hamstring), WR Marcus Easley (shoulder), OT Chris Hairston (knee), DT Spencer Johnson (ankle), G Andy Levitre (knee), CB Leodis McKelvin (groin), CB Justin Rogers (knee), S Da'Norris Searcy (hand), WR Brad Smith (hamstring), RB C.J. Spiller (shoulder), DT Kyle Williams (ankle), DE Mario Williams (wrist, knee), C Eric Wood (knee)

Analysis: The Bills will miss Aaron Williams, Jackson and Anderson. All three players are starters, but that was expected. Buffalo expects to get back Williams and Jackson in the next game or two. Jackson’s absence will allow more carries for backup tailback Spiller, who leads the NFL at 7.2 yards per carry. Buffalo coach Chan Gailey has struggled to provide enough carries for Spiller, but this is the perfect opportunity to change that. Buffalo defensive tackle Chris Kelsay also will miss his second straight game after injuring his neck in practice last week. Buffalo will enter this game thin on the defensive line.

Dolphins (4-5)

Questionable: WR Jabar Gaffney (knee), TE Jeron Mastrud (hamstring)

Probable: LB Karlos Dansby (bicep), WR Brian Hartline (knee), DT Tony McDaniel (knee), LB Koa Misi (calf), WR Marlon Moore (neck), C Mike Pouncey (knee, ankle), DT Paul Soliai (ankle, elbow), DE Olivier Vernon (knee)

Analysis: The Dolphins have been fortunate to avoid significant injuries. They are remarkably healthy considering it is Week 11 in the NFL season. Despite a quick turnaround, they expect to have most or all of their available players. Gaffney is the only concern. He’s getting an increased role with the team as a reserve receiver. But injuries won’t be an excuse if the Dolphins don’t end their two-game losing streak on Thursday.

Catching up on AFC East injuries

November, 9, 2012
Let’s take a final look at the injury reports in the AFC East and what it means for Sunday’s games:

Miami Dolphins (4-4)

The Dolphins are looking healthy heading into Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans. The only real question entering the week was the status of starting cornerback Richard Marshall, who has been out with a back injury. But Miami decided to shut Marshall down and put him on injured reserve. Backup defensive lineman Tony McDaniel (knee) missed practice on Thursday and is listed as questionable. He missed last week’s game against the Indianapolis Colts. Players like defensive tackle Paul Soliai (ankle), center Mike Pouncey (knee) and linebacker Karlos Dansby (bicep) are all expected to play. The Dolphins must be careful with injuries on Sunday because they have a quick turnaround to face the Bills on Thursday.

Buffalo Bills (3-5)

Starting defensive tackle Chris Kelsay hurt his neck in practice this week and is listed as questionable. He joins guard Kraig Urbik (foot), defensive tackle Kyle Williams (foot) and receiver Steve Johnson (thigh) among the questionable players. Johnson did tell reporters this week he would play Sunday against the Patriots. Starting Buffalo corner Aaron Williams (knee) will not play and is expected to miss 2-3 weeks. Similar to Miami, the Bills must be careful with injuries because they play on a short week.

New England Patriots (5-3)

The Patriots had two weeks to rest and prepare for the Bills. Still, New England kept up with its trend of making a lot of players "questionable," when there is a good chance most will play. Among the 14 questionable players are receiver Wes Welker (ankle), guard Logan Mankins (hip) and tight ends Rob Gronkowski (hip) and Aaron Hernandez (ankle). It would be a surprise if any of these star players aren't ready for Buffalo coming off the bye.

New York Jets (3-5)

The Jets will be without running back Joe McKnight (ankle) and defensive lineman Kenrick Ellis (knee) against the Seattle Seahawks. New York head coach Rex Ryan said both players are not quite ready but could return next week. Linebacker Bart Scott (toe), guard Brandon Moore, center Nick Mangold and linebacker Sione Pouha are among the starters who are questionable. Scott would be the biggest question mark of the group.

Patriots-Jets final injury report

October, 19, 2012
Here is the final injury report for Sunday’s game between the New York Jets (3-3) and New England Patriots (3-3):


Doubtful: DL Kenrick Ellis (knee), DL Sione Pouha (back), RB Bilal Powell (shoulder), S Eric Smith (knee)

Questionable: WR Clyde Gates (shoulder), C Nick Mangold (ankle), RB Joe McKnight (ankle)

Probable: WR Stephen Hill (hamstring), TE Dustin Keller (hamstring), WR Jeremy Kerley (finger), LaRon Landry (heel), OL Brandon Moore (hip), LB Calvin Pace (shoulder), QB Mark Sanchez (back), LB Bart Scott (toe), G Matt Slauson (knee), LB Bryan Thomas (hamstring)


Out: S Steve Gregory (hip), RB Brandon Bolden (knee), LB Tracy White (foot)

Questionable: DL Ron Brace (back), S Patrick Chung (shoulder), WR Julian Edelman (hand), TE Rob Gronkowski (hip), TE Aaron Hernandez (ankle), LB Dont’a Hightower (hamstring), G Logan Mankins (calf, hip), OL Nick McDonald (shoulder), CB Sterling Moore (knee), RT Sebastian Vollmer (back, knee), WR Wes Welker (ankle)

Probable: DT Kyle Love (knee)

Thoughts: Both teams are banged up heading into this big showdown for first place in the division. The Patriots have a lot of players deemed "questionable," such as Hernandez, Welker, Mankins and Chung. But all four practiced in Friday's walkthrough, which is an indication they intend to play. Bolden will be out, which means backup tailbacks Danny Woodhead or Shane Vereen have to step up to provide rest for starter Stevan Ridley. Pouha and Ellis expect to be out again for the Jets, leaving a thin defensive line. Mangold returned to practice Friday with his ankle injury. McKnight has a much better chance to play than Powell. Backup quarterback Tim Tebow also could get carries behind starting tailback Shonn Greene.

AFC East Week 3 injury report

September, 21, 2012
This is the final injury report for Week 3 in the AFC East:

New York Jets (1-1) at Miami Dolphins (1-1)


Out: OL Dennis Landolt (knee)

Doubtful: FB John Conner (knee), LB Bryan Thomas (hamstring)

Questionable: DB Ellis Lankster (back), TE Dustin Keller (hamstring)

Probable: CB Darrelle Revis (concussion), DT Sione Pouha (back), DB Isaiah Trufant (ankle), CB Antonio Cromartie (shoulder), WR Chaz Schilens (ankle), LB Nick Bellore (shoulder), QB Mark Sanchez (back), C Nick Mangold (wrist), LB Calvin Pace (Achilles), LB Bart Scott (knee), DT Mike Devito (calf), G Brandon Moore (hip), DE Quinton Coples (illness), S LaRon Landry (heel), S Eric Smith (hip/knee), DL Kenrick Ellis (illness), DE Muhammad Wilkerson (non-injury)


Out: DT Tony McDaniel (knee)

Doubtful: WR Marlon Moore (hamstring)

Probable: WR Anthony Armstrong (hamstring), LB Kevin Burnett (foot), LB Jonathan Freeny (thumb), CB Richard Marshall (back), RB Lamar Miller (ankle), LB Koa Misi (footb), DE Jared Odrick (thumb), RB Daniel Thomas (concussion), S Jimmy Wilson (back)

Buffalo Bills (1-1) at Cleveland Browns (0-2)


Out: RB Fred Jackson (knee), WR Ruvell Martin (ankle)

Questionable: S Jairus Byrd (ankle)

Probable: LB Nick Barnett (knee)


Out: TE Alex Smith (head), LB James-Michael Johnson (Ribs)

Questionable: WR Josh Cribbs (knee), DL Juqua Parker (foot), DB Ray Ventrone (hand)

Probable: OT Oniel Cousins (ankle), LB Scott Fujita (knee), WR Greg Little (back), RB Trent Richardson (knee), DL Billy Winn (head)

New England Patriots (1-1) at Baltimore Ravens (1-1)


Out: DT Justin Francis (ankle), TE Aaron Hernandez (ankle)

Questionable: C Dan Connolly (concussion), DE Brandon Deaderick (ankle), CB Alfonzo Dennard (hamstring), TE Daniel Fells (shin), WR Brandon Lloyd (thigh), G Logan Mankins (hip), C Nick McDonald (shoulder), CB Sterling Moore (knee), RB Shane Vereen (foot), OT Sebastian Vollmer (back)

Probable: S Patrick Chung (should)


Doubtful: OT Jah Reid (calf)

Probable: LB Paul Kruger (back), LB Jameel McClain (knee), DE Pernell McPhee (knee), OT Michael Oher (ankle), S Bernard Pollard (chest), CB Lardarius Webb (knee)

AFC East Week 1 injury report

September, 7, 2012
Here is the final Week 1 injury report for the AFC East:

Buffalo Bills at New York Jets, 1 p.m. ET Sunday


Out: CB Ron Brooks (foot)

Questionable: WR Steve Johnson (groin)

Probable: G Kraig Urbik (back), WR Brad Smith (groin)


Out: S Eric Smith (hip, knee), OL Dennis Landolt (knee)

Questionable: DT Sione Pouha (low back), DT Mike Devito (calf), TE Dustin Keller (hamstring)

Probable: WR Chaz Schilens (ankle), WR Santonio Holmes (ribs), DE Ellis Lankster (quad), LB David Harris (ankle), S Josh Bush (concussion), LB Nick Bellore (shoulder), RB Joe McKnight (hamstring), WR Stephen Hill (calf), G Brandon Moore (hip), LB Bryan Thomas (ankle), S LaRon Landry (heel)

Analysis: The questionable players are key. Steve Johnson says he will play through his groin injury Sunday. The Bills need Johnson badly, because he's their only proven receiver. For the Jets, Sione Pouha is most likely to sit with a bad back. Mike Devito and Dustin Keller are both expected to tough it out against the Bills.

Miami Dolphins at Houston Texans, Sunday at 1 p.m. ET


Questionable: DL Tony McDaniel (knee/toes)

Probable: WR Brian Hartline (calf), G John Jerry (ankle), LT Jake Long (knee), LB Koa Misi (back), LB Jason Trusnik (ankle), DE Derrick Shelby (shoulder)


Questionable: RB Arian Foster (knee), LB Brooks Reed (hip), LB Brian Braman (hamstring)

Probable: DE J.J. Watt (elbow), RB Ben Tate (head), C Chris Myers (knee), WR Andre Johnson (chest), TE Owen Daniels (illness), LB Brian Cushing (ribs), NT Shaun Cody (back/ankle), S Shiloh Keo (neck)

Analysis: The biggest injury here is to Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster. Texans coach Gary Kubiak says Foster will be a game-time decision, but it sounds like Foster could play. Reed also is a solid player on the mend. The Dolphins are pretty healthy. Left tackle Jake Long will be needed and is expected to play. Receiver Brian Hartline also has some ability and adds a reliable weapon to rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

New England Patriots at Tennessee Titans, Sunday at 1 p.m. ET


Out: RB Shane Vereen

Questionable: RT Sebastian Vollmer (back), CB Sterling Moore (knee), TE Daniel Fells (shin), CB Alfonzo Dennard (hamstring), OL Nick McDonald (shoulder)

Probable: S Patrick Chung (shoulder)


Out: OT Mike Otto (finger, knee)

Doubtful: DT Sen'Derrick Marks (knee)

Questionable: DE Scott Solomon (knee), DE Jurrell Casey (elbow), LB Zac Diles (hamstring)

Analysis: Sebastian Vollmer is the biggest name for the Patriots. The right tackle has battled injuries all offseason, but the Patriots need Vollmer to play to assist in protecting quarterback Tom Brady. Running back Shane Vereen has been missed the past couple of weeks and wasn’t expected to play in the opener. That puts the focus on starting tailback Stevan Ridley.

In case you missed it, here is our picks of who will win these Week 1 games. The AFC East blog is undefeated picking games so far (wink, wink).
INDIANAPOLIS -- Here is the final injury report for the New England Patriots (15-3) in Super Bowl XLVI against the New York Giants (12-7):


QUESTIONABLE: TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle), OT Marcus Cannon (ankle), S Patrick Chung (knee), LB Dane Fletcher (thumb), DL Kyle Love (ankle), G Logan Mankins (knee), LB Rob Ninkovich (hip), LB Brandon Spikes (knee), OT Sebastian Vollmer (flu/back/foot), WR Wes Welker (knee), LB Tracy White (abdomen),

PROBABLE: WR Deion Branch (knee), C Dan Connolly (groin), S James Ihedigbo (shoulder), OT Matt Light (flu), WR Matthew Slater (shoulder)

Analysis: The Patriots have 11 players questionable, but that's nothing new since late in the season. Gronkowski obviously was the biggest news all week, but it looks pretty certain he will play. I think Vollmer's injury is one to watch. Although his position coach assured Vollmer will play in this game, he has missed the entire playoffs and rust could be an issue, particularly early. New York's pass rush is going to be relentless. Therefore, New England needs Vollmer to be sharp early on the edge protecting Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
The New England Patriots had their entire team practice in some capacity Thursday in preparation for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Baltimore Ravens.

As we mentioned earlier, Patriots starting quarterback Tom Brady (left shoulder) returned to the practice field and had full participation. There were 14 players limited in practice for the second straight day.

Here is the full injury report:

Limited practice: WR Deion Branch (knee), T Marcus Cannon (ankle), S Patrick Chung (knee), LB Dane Fletcher (thumb), TE Aaron Hernandez (concussion), S James Ihedigbo (shoulder), DL Kyle Love (ankle), G Logan Mankins (knee), LB Rob Ninkovich (hip), OT Nate Solder (concussion), LB Brandon Spikes (knee), OT Sebastian Vollmer (back/foot), WR Wes Welker (knee), LB Tracy White (abdomen)

Full practice: CB Kyle Arrington (foot), QB Tom Brady (left shoulder), C Dan Connolly (groin), WR Matthew Slater (shoulder)

AFC East Week 15 injury report

December, 16, 2011
Here are the final injury reports for the AFC East:

Miami Dolphins (4-9) at Buffalo Bills (5-8), Sunday at 1 p.m. ET


Questionable: QB Matt Moore (head, neck), LT Jake Long (back), G Vernon Carey (ankle), TE Anthony Fasano (ribs)

Probable: S Yeremiah Bell (foot), CB Vontae Davis (neck)


Out: TE Scott Chandler (ankle)

Probable: K Dave Rayner (groin), CB Aaron Williams (calf)

Analysis: The Dolphins have a lot of key injuries on offense. The status of Moore and Long will be huge in this game. I don't think Miami can win without both players, who are questionable. Moore and Long practiced on a limited basis Thursday and Friday. But backup quarterback J.P. Losman better be ready. I do expect Fasano to play at tight end. For Buffalo, the team will be without Chandler. But everyone else on the 53-man roster is expected to be available.

New York Jets (8-5) at Philadelphia Eagles (5-8), Sunday at 4:15 p.m. ET


Out: DB Marquice Cole (knee)

Probable: DL Mike DeVito (knee), DL Marcus Dixon (hip), Vladimir Ducasse (knee), RB Shonn Greene (rib), OL Nick Mangold (ankle), RB Joe McKnight (elbow), OL Brandon Moore (hip), LB Calvin Pace (groin), OL Matt Slauson (knee), DB Eric Smith (knee)


Doubtful: DE Darryl Tapp (Ribs)

Questionable: OT Todd Herremans (ankle), DT Cullen Jenkins (groin), WR Jeremy Maclin (hamstring, shoulder), QB Vince Young (ankle)

Probable: S Nate Allen (hamstring), CB Nnamdi Asomugha (knee), RB Ronnie Brown (hamstring), WR Riley Cooper (groin), DT Trevor Laws (knee), CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle), QB Michael Vick (ribs)

Analysis: The good news is the Jets get healthy returns from defensive lineman Mike DeVito and running back Joe McKnight. Both players have been needed to add depth at defensive line and running back, respectively. The Jets are getting closer to full strength at the right time. For the Eagles, the two players to watch are Jenkins and Maclin. Both are key players for Philadelphia when healthy.

New England Patriots (10-3) at Denver Broncos (8-5), Sunday at 4:15 p.m. ET


Doubtful: S Patrick Chung (foot), OT Sebastian Vollmer (back/foot)

Questionable: CB Kyle Arrington (foot), WR Deon Branch (groin), C Dan Connolly (groin), WR Julian Edelman (back), LB Dane Fletcher (thumb), S James Ihedigbo (shoulder), CB Devin McCourty (shoulder), WR Matthew Slater (shoulder), LB Brandon Spikes (knee), RB Shane Vereen (hamstring), WR Wes Welker (knee), OL Ryan Wendell (calf), RB Danny Woodhead (abdomen)


Questionable: S David Bruton (Achilles), S Brian Dawkins (neck) CB Andre' Goodman (concussion) WR Eddie Royal (concussion)

Probable: FB Spencer Larsen (hamstring) LB Von Miller (thumb)

Analysis: The Patriots' injury list has been lengthy for weeks and it's hard to predict who's in and who's out. But we know Chung and Vollmer probably will miss Sunday's game. The secondary has been a mess without Chung, but rookie offensive tackle Nate Solder has done a good job filling in for Vollmer.

AFC East Week 13 injury report

December, 2, 2011
Here is the final injury report for Week 13 in the AFC East:

Indianapolis Colts (0-11) at New England Patriots (8-3)


Out: TE Dallas Clark (fibula), QB Peyton Manning (neck)

Questionable: RB Joseph Addai (hamstring), G Ryan Diem (knee), TE Brody Eldridge (hand), WR Anthony Gonzalez (groin), TE Ryan Mahaffey (concussion), DT Drake Nevis (back), G Joe Reitz (knee), C Jeff Saturday (knee)


Out: OT Sebastian Vollmer (back, foot)

Doubtful: LB Brandon Spikes (knee)

Questionable: S Patrick Chung (foot), C Dan Connolly (groin), WR Julian Edelman (back), LB Dane Fletcher (thumb), LB Gary Guyton (shoulder), S James Ihedigbo (shoulder), CB Devin McCourty (shoulder), CB Antwaun Molden (concussion), WR Taylor Price (hamstring), KR Matthew Slater (shoulder), RB Shane Vereen (hamstring), C Ryan Wendell (calf), RB Danny Woodhead (abdomen)

Probable: WR Chad Ochocinco (hamstring)

New York Jets (6-5) at Washington Redskins (4-7)


Out: DT Mike DeVito (knee)

Probable: DT Marcus Dixon (shoulder), T Vladimir Ducasse (knee), RB Shonn Greene (rib), KR Jeremy Kerley (knee), C Nick Mangold (ankle), LB Calvin Pace (groin), S Brodney Pool (knee), G Matt Slauson (knee), RB LaDainian Tomlinson (knee)


Out: S LaRon Landry (groin)

Questionable: WR Terrence Austin (hamstring), DE Stephen Bowen (knee), LB London Fletcher (ankle), RB Darrel Young (head)

Probable: T Jammal Brown (hip), WR Jabar Gaffney (foot), S DeJon Gomes (knee), QB Rex Grossman (left shoulder), G Maurice Hurt (knee), LB Brian Orakpo (ankle), WR Niles Paul (toe), WR Donte' Stallworth (foot)

Oakland Raiders (7-4) at Miami Dolphins (3-8)


Out: QB Jason Campbell (collarbone), WR Jacoby Ford (foot), RB Taiwan Jones (hamstring), RB Darren McFadden (foot), WR Denarius Moore (foot), DE Jarvis Moss (hamstring)

Questionable: K Sebastian Janikowski (left hamstring), DT Tommy Kelly (toe), LB Rolando McClain (ankle), DE Trevor Scott (shoulder), LB Kamerion Wimbley (hamstring)

Probable: DE Lamarr Houston (knee), S Michael Huff (ankle), CB Chris Johnson (hamstring, groin), S Mike Mitchell (ankle), DT Richard Seymour (knee)


Doubtful: G Vernon Carey (ankle)

Questionable: S Yeremiah Bell (foot)

Probable: K Dan Carpenter (right groin)

Tennessee Titans (6-5) at Buffalo Bills (5-6)


Out: LB Barrett Ruud (groin)

Questionable: CB Tommie Campbell (shoulder), T David Stewart (calf)

Probable: C Eugene Amano (hip), WR Donnie Avery (hamstring), TE Jared Cook (concussion), DE Jason Jones (knee), LB Colin McCarthy (knee), DE Derrick Morgan (ankle)


Out: DT Torell Troup (back), S George Wilson (neck)

Doubtful: K Rian Lindell (shoulder)

Probable: CB Leodis McKelvin (ribs), WR Naaman Roosevelt (shoulder)

AFC East Week 12 injury report

November, 25, 2011
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


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)


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


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)


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.

Jets-Broncos injury report

November, 16, 2011
Here is the final injury report for Thursday's game between the New York Jets (5-4) and Denver Broncos (4-5):


Out: S Brodney Pool (knee), WR Jeremy Kerley (knee), TE Shawn Nelson (illness), RB LaDainian Tomlinson (knee)

Probable: WR Plaxico Burress (low back), DL Mike DeVito (knee), DL Marcus Dixon (shoulder), LB David Harris (ankle), WR Santonio Holmes (foot), DL Kenrick Ellis (ankle), OL Nick Mangold (ankle), LB Josh Mauga (low back), RB Joe McKnight (toe), LB Calvin Pace (groin), DB Darrelle Revis (knee), OL Matt Slauson (ankle), DB Isaiah Trufant (hamstring), WR Patrick Turner (kidney)


Out: RB Knowshon Moreno (knee)

Questionable: RB Willis McGhee (hamstring)

Probable: OT Ryan Clady (knee), OT Chris Clark (knee), S Brian Dawkins (ankle), TE Julius Thomas (ankle), CB Cassius Vaughn (hamstring), LB Wesley Woodyard (knee)

Analysis: Key players are missing for the Jets coming off the short week. Pool, Kerley and Tomlinson will hurt New York's depth. Kerley is the team's No. 3 receiver, and Tomlinson is the backup tailback and best receiver out of the backfield. Look for Joe McKnight to get an expanded role in place of Tomlinson. For the Broncos, the biggest question mark is tailback Willis McGahee. The Broncos could certainly use him in their "T-bone" offense. Denver had a run-to-pass ratio of 55-to-8 last week against the Kansas City Chiefs.
