Fans have some concerns after the Patriots released their final injury report
The Patriots listed the following players in their injury report:
S Joshuah Bledsoe, Groin
WR Jakobi Meyers, Knee
WR Ty Montgomery, Knee
CB Shaun Wade, Ankle
OT Isaiah Wynn, Back
Belichick and the Patriots traveled to Florida a few days ago. He wanted his players to get ready for the hot weather. Patriots players have no trouble playing in rain and snow, but they are definitely not used to the humidity in Florida.
Meyers is the top receiver for the Patriots and his absence may put a spell to this game. Montgomery has a big role in the passing game and the Patriots rely on his skills.
The Dolphins had five players on their injury report:
RB Salvon Ahmed, Heel
TE Tanner Conner, Knee
DT Raekwon Davis, Knee
S Eric Rowe, Pectoral
LB Andrew Van Ginkel, Not Injury Related — Illness
It’s an exciting game for every player on both teams. The Patriots haven’t won many games against the Dolphins. Their offense struggles, but hey, impossible is nothing. The hype surrounding this game will motivate players to do their best tomorrow. Belichick trusts his players. He trusts his starting quarterback. Mac Jones and his teammates will enter Sunday’s game with one goal. Win.
