The Patriots were at least moderately healthy against the Panthers.
But now that they’re playing a team more efficient at throwing the ball, they’re likely to be very shorthanded.
The Patriots listed four members of the secondary as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Broncos — cornerbacks Aqib Talib, Alfonzo Dennard and Kyle Arrington, along with safety Steve Gregory. All were listed as participating on a limited basis Friday.
With the Broncos getting Wes Welker back from a concussion, and plenty of other targets for Peyton Manning to choose from, it’s far from an ideal situation.
