Amendola questionable, Edelman doubtful for Sunday

Getty Images

The Patriots don’t share much information about injuries in a normal week and this week was a bit different because they didn’t hold a practice on Christmas.

That means their final injury report of the week includes a projection of what players would have done in practice on Friday along with their designations for Sunday’s game against the Jets. Wide receivers Danny Amendola, Brandon LaFell and Julian Edelman would have both been limited participants in practice, but their outlook for Sunday is different.

Amendola is questionable after hurting his knee against the Titans while Edelman is doubtful with the broken bone in his foot that has kept him out since Week 10. LaFell is also listed as questionable, along with safeties Devin McCourty and Patrick Chung and linebacker Dont’a Hightower. Linebacker Jonathan Freeny will miss his third straight game.

The Jets have fewer question marks heading into Sunday. Cornerback Dee Milliner isn’t expected to play with a hamstring injury and wide receiver Quincy Enunwa will be a game-time decision due to a neck injury.

  1. Considering this and all the players already out, along with ongoing o-line issues, I have no idea how the Patriots keep it going. It’s a playoff game for the Jets. They’ve already won this game. It’s in the bag. Bet the farm. No worries.

  2. With Gronk in the lineup and the way Martin has been playing at wideout, along with James Whites recent performances I still think they will win this game.

  3. The Jets have been super lucky with injuries all year, but unfortunately they just aren’t that good.

  4. Fear not Tom Brady is the QB and he knows how to deal with this situation. Let a few ounces of air out of the footballs, and the Patriots should be okay.

  5. @Bartor…
    Footballs are inflated to psi (you do know what what the “p” means right (hint: it does not stand for “patriots”) and ounces make up pounds…keep in mind the NFL and media often used ounces in measuring how much air Brady let out of the balls. You can run but you cannot hide!

    You mean like how the pressure has been avidly watched by the NFL wince the AFCCG and Brady’s numbers haven’t changed?

    If the pressure has been strictly maintained by the NFL (obviously) and Brady’s numbers haven’t changed (obviously), wouldn’t the (obvious) answer be that the psi has never been changed either?

    Eh, who are we kidding.Trolls and haters never let logic bother them in their pursuit of fantasy.

  7. It still amazes me the number of clueless posters who still believe tampering occurred. 5 th grade science proves there was no tampering. I never realized how many uneducated people there were on line until framegate. Very sad reflection of the American education system.

    LMAO

    Ounces add up to lbs when measuring solid or liquid matter but not gas ( air is gas = and not gasoline dummy)

    PSI stands for Pounds Per Square Inch = But NOT lbs in weight.

    When you put 35 psi in your tires you are not putting 35 lbs of weight into those tires = LMAO

    The News Media Idiots may, in fact, referred to the air pressure in ounce since they are a bunch of DUMMIES to begin with.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHA = ROFL

  9. The Jets have not been lucky with injuries either. If you weren’t a troll you’d have known that. Revis concussed, Decker MCL injury, Marshall and Ivory have been dealing with injuries for weeks, Mangold missed weeks, Fitz had surgery, Williams (cb) hurt his knee, devin smith torn ACL, probably more I’ve forgot. They just happen to be healthy at the right time.

    Christmas for the Patriots Practice Squaders :

    Player : Look honey, a gift from Coach Belichick

    Wife : What is it ?

    Player : My release
    .

  11. A friend of mine once sent the kid who had just started working for him to the local gas station with an air pig and told him not to put more than 50# in it or he couldn’t carry it. The kid said “OK” and went off to the gas station. He came back with a red face and 120# of air in the pig.

    Better to release him on the 26th? Or to keep a guy around that you don’t need just to be nice? Please explain, because I really have no idea what you’re trying to say here.

    Agreed. All teams have injuries, some have been decimated (like Baltimore).

    Patriots have already earned a bye and can let some guys heal, which is what they ought to do.

  14. Bucsorbust, settle down, it’s Xmas. Take a deep breath. Can’t you put aside your frustrations for one day? Pity. Yikes.

  15. Why is it that NASCAR knows that air pressure in tires rises during a race (the heat of the friction) but Goodell doesn’t understand footballs naturally deflate when they go from warm rooms to cold weather fields?

    Jeff Gordon can be seen in commercials telling drivers that cold weather deflates tires and reduces gas mileage.

    I never imagined that the NASCAR guys would be the the intelligent ones.

  16. Need Danny & Jules for the playoffs. Give the 2 new Backs some playing time. Let’s see what they can do.

    7th year in a row the Pats have a bye going into the playoffs. We as fans have been blessed! That’s that’s our Christmas present! Thanks Patriots! 4 time super bowl champs!!

  17. Patriots are better off to play as many subs as possible this week and next and try to get healthier for the playoffs.

    34 7 Thanks Capt. Obvious no one would think of that……brilliant just brilliant. They won’t because their egos can’t handle a loos to the Jests.

  18. Belichick will pull out all the stops to beat his hated Jets. If guys can play they will play. They can rest vs the Dolphins and first round of the playoffs.

    With that said I think its going to be a war. Jets had the lead late in week 7 only to lose by a TD. Win or lose the Jets are going to beat them up. They will need two weeks off.

  19. During all the appeal processes and court hearings, you don’t hear the phrase “I didn’t do it” too often. You do hear “Goodell overstepped his power” or “you can’t prove it”. Really, who cares. The pats have cheated before (there was the videotaping of teams, which is true) and they will do it again. And the nfl can’t stop them. There simply is no punishment available to deter them.

  20. If you don’t think this is a different Jets team from past years, hell they are different from the first meeting vs Pats this season…

    One notable improvement now is that the Jets have figured out how to win games with their offense.

    If the Patriots even think about half assing it this week, I tell you, the Jets will pound them and win this game by 14 points.

    If it was obvious, others would have said it. But you said the opposite, so I really have no idea what your point is.

    Everyone say “we’re a different team now”, just like the Colts did before the AFC title game last year.

    But don’t get me wrong – the Jets are good and I expect a tough game if NE plays starters.

    If NE lets all the nicked up guys sit, the Jets win.

  23. It should be a very interesting afternoon at MetLife stadium tomorrow. You will know by the end of the first quarter how badly the Patriots want the Jets out of the playoff picture. My guess is Belichick will use every player available to him.

    Rivalry and bad blood aside, he knows the Jets are not a team he wants to face in the playoffs, even in Foxboro.

    Fasten the chin straps it’s going to be fun!

    ====================================
    Reading comprehension is not your strong suit, it appears.
    Go back and read the transcript of the appeal “hearing” held by Goodell.

    As far as the court hearing goes, Berman was not allowed to rule on, or even consider, whether any actual rules infraction happened. He was only allowed to rule on the process and its compliance with the CBA.

    What was I thinking Captain obvious really is Captain obtuse disguised as a Pat’s fan. Smart people don’t state the obvious because they are not trying to prove they are smart…they already know.

    Jets are coming after it.

    And this is your genius revelation? Breaking news? Keen insight? Great. Thanks for the information. Prior to your post, all of us thought the Jets were going to forfeit this must win game.

    To the obtuse the obtuse is obvious. To the rest of us it is just obtuse.

    I really get enough clever word play on NPR. Maybe we could just talk football here on this site?

    Like this: I’m really looking forward to a bone crunching Steeler-Ravens game this week, with a Baltimore team that has absolutely nothing to lose knocking that goofy smirk off Tomlin’s face.
