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.
