New England at Denver

  • 1448673211
    Tom Brady is 2-5 in games at Denver and the Patriots' offense is running low on offensive weapons. Can they keep the streak going? Three teams that look playoff worthy? The Seahawks, Texans and ... Bucs.
    Aqib Talib has a plan to stop Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, but it involves triple-teaming a player that has scored five touchdowns in five games against the Broncos.
    Can Big Ben and the Steelers keep pace with the division-leading Bengals? They'll have to get past the Seahawks -- in Seattle. Will Brock Osweiler give the Broncos a fighting chance against the 10-0 Patriots?
    Johnny Manziel's tenure as the Browns' starting quarterback lasted about a week.
    Sean Taylor died eight years ago today. He was 24 and was already one of the NFL's best safeties.

    11/29/15WRDanny AmendolaKNEEQUESTIONABLEAmendola (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos, the Boston Herald reports.

    Though Amendola practiced in a limited fashion both Thursday and Friday, his Week 12 status may come down to a game-day call, which is a bit tricky for his fantasy owners, considering that the Patriots kick off at 8:30 ET on Sunday.

    11/29/15DTAlan BranchELBOWPROBABLEThe Patriots have reportedly re-signed defensive tackle Alan Branch to a two-year deal worth a maximum of $6.6 million, according to Albert Breer of the NFL Network.

    11/29/15CBJustin ColemanHANDOUTThree injured players have been placed on the inactive list by the Patriots for their season opener Thursday night against Pittsburgh. They are running back Travaris Cadet (hamstring), defensive lineman Trey Flowers (knee) and safety Tavon Wilson (quad).
    11/29/15LBJamie CollinsILLNESSDOUBTFULCollins (illness) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Broncos, the Boston Herald reports.

    On a positive note, Collins returned to to a limited practice Friday, but at this point it looks likely that the linebacker's return to game action won't occur until Week 13's tilt against the Eagles.

    11/29/15WRJulian EdelmanFOOTOUTEdelman underwent foot surgery Monday on the Jones fracture he suffered Sunday against the Giants, and he could return in 6-to-8 weeks, according to Albert Breer of NFL Network.

    Breer notes that the recovery timeframe is a rough one, so while it could theoretically allow Edelman to return during the postseason, it's certainly no guarantee. Danny Amendola is expected to get an increase in offensive snaps with Edelman sidelined, while Brandon LaFell, Aaron Dobson and Rob Gronkowski could all see more targets as well.

    11/29/15DEChandler JonesABDOMENPROBABLEJones (abdomen) was on the field for 63 of the Patriots' 71 defensive snaps in Monday's win over the Bills, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

    Per the report, Jones had a chance to rack up a sack Monday, but QB Tyrod Taylor slipped out of the defensive end's grasp, with Jones thus limited to one tackle in the game. Through 10 games overall, Jones has notched 31 tackles and 10.5 sacks.

    11/29/15WRKeshawn MartinHAMSTRINGQUESTIONABLEMartin (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos, the Boston Herald reports.

    As is fellow wideout Danny Amendola, though with Martin not having suited up since Week 6 and the Patriots not kicking off until 8:30 ET on Sunday, Martin looks like a risky roll in Week 12. Down the road though, when his health and role in the team's offense are re-established, Martin could carve out some deep league utility in the absence of Julian Edelman.

    11/29/15TEMichael WilliamsKNEEQUESTIONABLEThe Patriots have acquired tackle Michael Williams from the Lions in exchange for a future draft pick, according to NFL.com. 
    11/26/15WRAaron DobsonAnkleQUESTIONABLEThe Patriots have placed Dobson (ankle) on IR, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

    With Dobson headed to IR, Julian Edelman out indefinitely, plus Danny Amendola and Keshawn Martin also banged up, we'd expect the Patriots to make a move to add some wideout depth in the coming days.

    11/26/15WRMatthew SlaterNot injury relatedQUESTIONABLESlater (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

    Though Slater's role in the team's offense remains limited, he continues to be a key cog on special teams for the Patriots.

    11/29/15TEOwen DanielsKNEEPROBABLEDaniels (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

    Limited at practice Wednesday and Thursday, Daniels returned to full participation Friday. He should be fine for Sunday's game, but with Vernon Davis now in the mix at tight end, targets may be a bit harder to come by. However, Daniels still managed to log 56 snaps in a Week 11 win over the Bears.

    11/29/15TEVirgil GreenFINGERPROBABLEGreen was targeted once in Sunday's win over Chicago, recording a nine-yard reception.

    Following a three-catch performance in Week 8, Green has been targeted just once in each of the past three contests. In Brock Osweiler's first game under center, head coach Gary Kubiak implemented his multi-tight end scheme to full effect, with 12 of 27 passes directed at tight ends. Eleven of those targets, however, went to Owen Daniels and Vernon Davis. Green saw the field just 26 times as compared to Daniels, 59, and Davis, 50, and is unlikely to benefit much from Denver's adjusted offense.

    11/29/15QBPeyton ManningFOOTOUTNFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggested Thursday that Manning (foot) is at least three weeks away from playing again.

    When explaining the basis of the estimate, Rapoport noted Thursday that Manning is "going to be in a cast for up to 10 days, then he's got another week of rehab, and then he's got to try to get on the field." Based on that, Rapoport suggests that "the date to circle on your calendar is Dec. 20 against the Steelers. That's the most realistic date that Manning could be back, but no one has guaranteed to me that he'll definitely be back on the field, especially if Brock Osweiler is playing well." In any case, the Broncos have already acknowledged that Manning -- who continues to recover from a plantar fascia tear -- is expected to miss at least the next two games, with Osweiler slated to fill in for him at QB in the meantime.

    Given the probable designation and the fact that Sanders practiced fully Friday, the wideout looks like a go for Sunday's 8:30 ET contest, in the absence of any unexpected pre-game setbacks.

    On the plus side, Ware, who aggravated a previous back injury on Nov. 8, said Friday that he hoped he could practice by next Wednesday.
