The New England Patriots released the final injury report heading into the game against the Miami Dolphins. This is the final game of the regular season and the Patriots have to win it. There’s no room for mistakes now. The injury report was pretty long and nine players were listed as questionable for the game. Fans shouldn’t be really worried at this point despite the fact that one starting safety was ruled out for the game.
Safety Kyle Dugger won’t join his teammates for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. His hand injury seems to be really bad and he didn’t even practice with the team.
Patriots release lengthy injury report ahead of game vs Dolphins
Slot cornerback Myles Bryant and reserve offensive tackle Yodny Cajuste are on the reserve/COVID-19 list. These two had to isolate themselves away from the team this week but may clear their protocols right before the game against the Dolphins. Dugger is out, and Bryant may sit out the game as well. If this happens, the Patriots can use D’Angelo Ross and Sean Davis.
DB Kyle Dugger, Hand
C David Andrews, Shoulder
DL Christian Barmore, Knee
DB Cody Davis, Wrist
K Nick Folk, Left Knee
RB Damien Harris, Hamstring
LB Dont’a Hightower, Knee
WR Jakobi Meyers, Thigh
S Adrian Phillips, Knee
T Isaiah Wynn, Hip
Patriots starters are questionable for this game and this may be the only problem for the team. Center David Andrews deals with shoulder injury and running back Damien Harris has a nagging hamstring issue. Dont’a Hightower suffered knee injury and Jakobi Meyers is really careful with his thigh. Adrian Phillips and Isaiah Wynn have the same status.
Nelson Agholor missed significant time due to the concussion he suffered. The team removed him from the injury report meaning he will suit up for the game on Sunday.
Wide receiver N’Keal Harry was a healthy scratch in the win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Head coach Bill Belichick replaced him with Kristian Wilkerson from the practice squad after he dropped two passes in the loss to the Buffalo Bills.
