The Patriots added quarterback Tom Brady and safety Devin McCourty to their injury report Thursday.

Brady’s right hand limited him in the team’s work Thursday, and McCourty was limited with a shoulder injury.

The Patriots kept defensive tackle Malcom Brown (foot) out of practice after he was a limited participant Wednesday.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski (concussion) and defensive lineman Deatrich Wise (concussion) remained out of practice.

Running back Mike Gillislee (knee) and offensive lineman LaAdrian Waddle (knee) remained limited.

  1. With Cannon on IR Waddle’s status is a concern. There’s a reason Fleming is a 3rd stringer. He struggled against Jax and that exposed Mason a bit, you can be sure that won’t be lost on the Eagles staff.

  2. I can’t wait to see how the NFL league office in conjunction with the Patriots and Referees draw up the game plan for Super Bowl 52. Gronk likely will be a game time decision; making a grand entrance high fiving fans and officials alike on his way onto the field. Pyrotechnics in the background. It’ll be so cool.

    Eagles will start strong, defensive line making plays in the first half. But then the refs will make sure they don’t call any holding on the Pats oline to ensure Brady has all day to make plays.

    Boy, it’s gonna be great. Hopefully someone will leak the script.

    You’re right, it will be great. Lets face it no one wants riots in Phili, so the Pats will make sure that doesn’t happen.

    I will take gimpy Brady over healthy Foles. Patriots win comfortably

    —————————
    How can you be comfortable? Im not.

    You know when Belichick will be comfortable? The night after the Superbowl when he is heads down in video analyzing players and starting his prep for the 2018 season. The reason he will be comfortable about the Superbowl is because he will already have completely forgotten it.

  5. “But then the refs will make sure they don’t call any holding on the Pats oline to ensure Brady has all day to make plays.”

    People like you make these ridiculous comments using innuendo by cherry picking one thing and ignoring the fact that guess what, there were ZERO holding calls on the Jags Oline last week as well.

    That was including their first 2 scoring drives when there were multiple instances of Jags Olinemen tackling and pushing Pats rushers to the ground from behind, and at least one play where a Jags Olineman had a Pats rusher in a choke hold from behind. But yeah, they were favoring the Pats.

    SMH

    Not likely considering the fact that in the last game the refs were helping the Jaguars.

    The Patriots were called for holding and the Jaguars were not.

    The Only calls on the Jaguars were the automatic calls that resulted when the Jaguars were caught committing a false start, delay of game, an illegal shift, an unnecessary roughness.

    The Jaguars were only called for 2 penalties requiring referee judgement in the entire game. One of those was for tackling a defensive lineman to the ground to try to prevent a QB sack. And the other was for flagrantly pushing a receive out of bounds. The Jaguars really didn’t receive any penalties that actually required the refs to use judgement.

    That’s not what Pro Football Focus thinks

    T CAMERON FLEMING, 85.4 OVERALL GRADE
    One of the biggest stories of this game was the Jaguars’ inability to get pressure on Tom Brady. Fleming was a big reason why. Brady was under pressure on only nine of his 42 dropbacks, and Fleming was responsible for only one of those.

  8. “Wow it’s crazy that a SB team has a player I’ve never heard of -Deatrich Wise?”

    What you know almost every player on every roster?

    Wise is a rookie BTW who has been effective as a situational pass rusher (5 sacks) and in rotation on the DL.

    Meanwhile Seth Wickersham is on IR with a hyperextended career.

    Perhaps your best comment ever…

    Chess vs. Checkers – who’s the master?

  10. @thermo, there’s more to an o-line than pass blocking. It’s a shame that PFF didn’t include the run chart in their evaluation or you might have a better understanding of what I found disappointing. The run blocking to the right was bad enough that the Pats didn’t even try running off RT (not even once). Heck they only went off the right end once. Do you think the Eagles staff didn’t notice that?

    Regardless of how false that story turned out to be it first got all kinds of attention spending about a week as valuable click bait. ESPN is not going to care how that looked in the end they still pocket the advertising dollars. So if anything Wickersham’s stature probably went up with them.

    Yawn. Another week. Another injury report manipulation. Same, same.

    Yawn. Another week. Patriots giving some of Brady’s reps to the backup QB…just in case…considered to be “manipulation” by biased people with no ability the think objectivity. Same, same.
