The New England Patriots head south tomorrow to face the Miami Dolphins. Ahead of a game full of playoff implications, both teams have updated their weekly injury reports, including the Dolphins adding punter Brandon Fields to the report.
Neither team ruled out any players, nor are any doubtful for Sunday's game. Miami listed safety Reshad Jones (groin), who had not practiced all week until a limited performance on Friday, and cornerback Jamar Taylor (hamstring) as questionable. The Patriots continue their tradition of listing as many people as possible on the injury report, with cornerback Kyle Arrington (groin), tackle Marcus Cannon (ankle), cornerback Alfonzo Dennard (knee/shoulder), wide receiver Aaron Dobson (foot), tight end Michael Hoomanawanui (knee), tackle Nate Solder (concussion), linebacker Brandon Spikes (knee), tackle Will Svitek (ankle), and wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins (hip) all listed as questionable.
As for the probable players, the Dolphins listed cornerback Nolan Carroll (knee/hamstring), safety Chris Clemons (knee/hamstring), guard Nate Garner (ribs), running back Lamar Miller (concussion), and defensive tackle Paul Soliai (ankle). A surprise name also appeared on the probable list, with Fields suddenly showing up on the report for a "non-injury" reason. Eventually, Fields cleared up the "non-injury" reason himself:
For the Patriots, the probable list included wide receiver Danny Amendola (groin), quarterback Tom Brady (right shoulder), safety Steve Gregory (finger), wide receiver Matthew Slater (wrist), cornerback Aqib Talib (hip), and running back Shane Vereen (wrist).
The Patriots and Dolphins kick off at 1pm ET on Sunday.
