Patriots at Dolphins injury report update from Thursday

The Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots updated their injury reports on Thursday.

The Miami Dolphins will host the New England Patriots in a Week 17, regular season ending contest this Sunday. For the Dolphins, that game will mark the end of their season, while the Patriots will once again head to the Playoffs. The only thing on the line during this game will be deciding if the Patriots are the first or second seed in the AFC side of the Playoff brackets.

The changes for the injury report from Wednesday were minor, with the Dolphins only upgrading defensive tackle Earl Mitchell from not practicing to limited on Thursday. The Patriots had three changes to their report, with linebackers Jonathan Freeny and Rob Ninkovich returning to practice on Thursday in a limited fashion after not practicing on Friday, while defensive end Chandler Jones downgraded from a full participant on Wednesday to limited on Thursday.
