Devin McCourty isn’t practicing for Patriots, Shane Vereen is

Left tackle Nate Solder isn’t the only Patriots player trying to get cleared from a concussion in time to help the team nail down at least a first round playoff bye against the Bills this weekend.

Safety Devin McCourty doesn’t have the same extensive concussion history that Solder brings to the table, but he’s still in the protocol and hasn’t been able to practice at all this week. McCourty will need to be cleared for a return to practice before he can get cleared for game action, so there may not be enough time for that to happen for this week’s game.

Running back Shane Vereen’s chances of playing look better. Vereen participated in practice on Thursday, as he did on Tuesday, which is a good sign that the groin injury that knocked him out of Week 16 isn’t overly significant.

Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports that wide receiver Josh Boyce also missed practice. Boyce has an ankle injury that kept him out of last week’s game and he hasn’t practiced at all in the last two weeks.

    Miraculously, all 3 players will be cleared to play.

    This is the New England Patriots after all.

    Rules? We don’t need no stinking rules…

    Can’t wait for the pats to roll into Denver and beat them in the AFC championship

    Concussions have nothing to do with a team following “Rules”. If they are medically cleared they will play

    Now now be nice to the poor little Donks fan. He knows his team is QB’d by the greatest choker in NFL playoff history.

    Be it the Pats or any other team, he’s scared that Manning will play his usual caliber of playoff football and he knows he doesn’t have much to look forwards to after this weekend.
