All 16 “questionable” Patriots active

Jamie Collins AP

The Patriots listed 16 players as questionable ahead of Sunday’s AFC Championship Game in Denver.

All 16 of those players are active.

The list of players who had been listed as questionable includes Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski, Jamie Collins, Danny Amendola and Sebastian Vollmer.

Offensive linemen Tre’ Jackson and LaAdrian Waddle had previously been listed as out. The Patriots’ other inactives are Jonathan Bostic, Tavon Wilson, Ishmaa’ily Kitchen, Chris Harper and Geneo Grissom.

The Broncos are again going with two running backs, meaning Juwan Thompson is inactive. The Broncos’ other inactives are Trevor Siemian, Taurean Nixon, Darius Kilgo, Sam Brenner, Lorenzo Doss and Robert Myers.

Broncos backup safety Shiloh Keo was inactive last week but is active today after Omar Bolden, one of the team’s top special teams players, was placed on injured reserve.

    We’re shocked! We know the only thing that was “questionable” was Brady/Belichec’s ethics.

  2. rogerdw66 says: Jan 24, 2016 1:52 PM

    So you’re telling me the Pats have no excuses? That’s highly unlikely. Pats fans do more whining, crying, and making excuses than any team’s fans in the NFL.

    All 16 available? Shocking. Just……shocking.

  4. uknepatsfan says: Jan 24, 2016 1:58 PM

    If we get beat then we get beat and so be it.

    No excuses.

    I love the tears of Pats haters.

    They taste like….sunshine.

    Questionable players are supposed to be 50/50 to play. So either this is an unbelievable statistical anomaly, or Belichick is full of crap.

    Wonder which it is.

    Pats haters are hilarious

  8. jrgoggin says: Jan 24, 2016 2:07 PM

    Probable means they are almost certain to play. Doubtful means almost no chance. Questionable has to cover everything in between. Questionable is the safest designation to give them if you want to be within the rules so that’s what belichick uses. Just not giving the league anything to grab onto because you know they will.

  9. youknowiknowitall says: Jan 24, 2016 2:08 PM

    There are no ethics in the NFL (see Roger Goodell, Commisioner). Whiny kindergarten and PC crap? Yeah, plenty of that.

  10. paulieorkid says: Jan 24, 2016 2:09 PM

    The injury designation of “Questionable” is generally intended to describe a 50% distinction between becoming a listed as a game day Active or Inactive.

    So for 16 players, each with a legitimate 50/50 likelihood of playing on game day, the odds of all of them coming up as Game Day Active would be 1 in 65,536. This is far more unlikely than rolling snake eyes three times in a row with a fair pair of dice.

    So either the Patriots enjoyed (1) a miracle from high above; (2) an astoundingly unlikely coincidence; or (3) they’re engaging in a bit of gamesmanship when it comes to ID’ing the injury status of their players.

    This is nothing new. Belichick has been listing a lot of player with even minor injuries as questionable rather than probable. O’Brien does it in Houston too. Not that big of a deal

  12. hakahakahaka says: Jan 24, 2016 2:10 PM

    The requirement of the injury report is a joke. Just helps Vegas make the betting line.

  13. unitedramp says: Jan 24, 2016 2:10 PM

    Broncos fans spend more time worrying about what Belichick and the Pats are doing rather than their own team — SAD

    Neither, it’s called the playoffs. Pats have been banged up for weeks and depth is shot, so if they can walk they have to suit up. Over half of them will be limited in play though, with lots of rotation (same as last week).

    Questionable is 50-50
    So 8 should be in and 8 out approximately

  17. bachsofrain says: Jan 24, 2016 2:17 PM

    Just one more way for Belichick to bend/stretch or outright break a rule. If a player is questionable he has a 50% chance of playing. With 16 players listed only 8 of the questionable players should actually be able to play. He ( B.B.) is not the only HC to do this, but if there is a list for questionable behavior you can bet the Pat’s franchise will be on it.

    Yes, if you beat the Pats, congratulations. You will have beaten a very good Patriots team.

    Nope, if this were week 17 none of the would be playing and then you would be upset if they had the same injuries. If you’re questionable for a Conference Championship game, you should be playing. Get it?

  20. wannabeqb says: Jan 24, 2016 2:25 PM

    31 teams have “questionable” players play, no complaints.

    Pats “questionable” players play – MUH INTEGRITUDE!!!

  21. nhpats says: Jan 24, 2016 2:29 PM

    I guess the posters whining about these players suiting up must be livid about The Colts not disclosing Andrew Luck’s rib injuries…eh?

    Somehow I think #TheHaters don’t really care. Instead they merely simmer and seethe in their own envy and jealousy. Here’s something to consider #Haters, hating the patriots won’t make your schlock teams any better. You should demand more from your owner, GM, coaches and players.

  22. patsfreak420 says: Jan 24, 2016 2:31 PM

    This post and the comments are just stupid. You onlybhave 8 players inactive in a game. As it could have been any of them to sit or be active they have to be listed questionable.
    Not to mention, the only people hurt by ambiguous injury reports are gamblers. If you think coaches game plan around them the ln you have a lot to learn about football.
    Injury reports only hurt the injured players by giving cheap players like TJ Ward a target. If there was a DL like baseball would make more sense as you could actually move players on and off the roster based on injuries but with the IR rules it only matters if the player is out for the year (or in a single case 8 games).

    Why write a long post when this team can be summed up in one word. #CHEATERS.

  26. camstolemycomputer says: Jan 24, 2016 2:49 PM

    Do you remember when the broncos didn’t even list all peytons injuries, but thats ok because it’s no the patriots, right?

    What have we got to whine, cry and make excuses for??? We ALWAYS WIN!!

  28. leftlaneisforpassingonly says: Jan 24, 2016 2:55 PM

    I doubt Collins or Vollmer are any where close to 100% but it’s the playoffs and they would probably have to be in a hospital bed to miss this game. That’s why Jerad Allen is so upset that they’re not letting him play.

  29. patsfan1820 says: Jan 24, 2016 2:57 PM

    I seem to remember the Broncos not listing plantar fascia for Peyton Manning some weeks back, but I guess the Patriots using questionable tags is worse right? I’m no espouser of the haters rhetoric, but I have to admit there are some pretty stupid people who hate the Pats and will get on them for anything.

    No one envies or is jealous of a cheater Skippy. People who see the Pats as cheaters are realistic people not haters which is the Pats Brats immature name for anyone unwilling to be a lemming.

    Belicheat’s mind games with the injury report are so old, lame and predictable. Good luck with that Bill!

    PHGHton Manning is a chump who stoled Favre’s record with the worst QB performance ever, while taking a banned substance, HGH.

    There is only 0.0015% that ALL 16 of these “50/50” players would be active.

    Or the Pats are lying again.

    I would say that the higher percentage chance is Door #2.

  36. ee00ee says: Jan 24, 2016 3:48 PM

    I’m surprised Bill hasn’t figured it out to push this rule this far, if not farther until now. Well I guess even he hzs room to “up” his game
