Patriots offensive linemen Dan Connolly and Bryan Stork, who missed Week 7 with concussions, returned to practice Tuesday, reports the Boston Herald.
Don Jones

News
The Patriots' list of inactives for Week 3 against Oakland includes defensive back Alfonzo Dennard (shoulder), defensive back Don Jones (hamstring), offensive lineman Ryan Wendell (knee), defensive lineman Zach Moore, wide receiver Aaron Dobson, offensive lineman Josh Kline and running back James White. Moore, Dobson, Kline and White are all healthy scratches.
Nate Solder
News
The Patriots started two rookies on the offensive line Monday for the first time since 2005. Cameron Fleming started at right guard and Bryan Stork started at center; both were fourth-round picks.

Dan Connolly started the first three games at center before starting at left guard against the Chiefs. The shuffling continued throughout the blowout loss as New England sought to find a combination that could protect Tom Brady. Left tackle Nate Solder was beaten badly on Tamba Hali's strip-sack in the third quarter, then got benched for Marcus Cannon.

Dont'a Hightower
News
The Patriots listed 13 players on their final injury report for their Week 8 home game against Chicago. Chandler Jones (hip) is the only player on the list to be ruled out for the game.

Shane Vereen was a late addition to the report because of an illness. He missed practice Friday and was labeled questionable. Dan Connolly (concussion), Dominique Easley (shoulder, knee), Nate Ebner (finger), Cameron Fleming (finger), Matthew Slater (shoulder) and Bryan Stork (concussion) were deemed questionable.

Meanwhile, Tom Brady (ankle), Brandon Browner (ankle), Jamie Collins (thigh), Dont'a Hightower (knee) and Devin McCourty (rib) were all full participants in Friday's practice session and officially ruled probable for Sunday.

Injury

Stephen Gostkowski
News
Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski hit two field goals Thursday against the Jets.

Gostkowski didn't get much action until the end of the second quarter. With time running out, he hit a 39 yard field goal to close out the half. He would also add a 36 yard field goal during the third quarter. Gostkowski also managed to hit three extra points during the contest.

He'll look for more Week 8 against the Bears. 

Tyler Gaffney
News
The Patriots released six players and placed two on injured reserve to get down to the 75-man limit. Released were defensive lineman Ben Bass, defensive backs Jemea Thomas and Travis Hawkins, receivers Derrick Johnson and Wilson Van Hooser, and linebacker Deontae Skinner.

The team put rookie running back Tyler Gaffney and rookie linebacker Cameron Gordon on injured reserve.
Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Chris Barker
News
The Patriots have promoted running back Jonas Gray and offensive lineman Chris Barker from the practice squad, according to ESPN.

The two players will take the place of Stevan Ridley and Jerod Mayo, who were both placed on IR Thursday. Gray should replace Ridley, though it's unknown how much playing time he'll get. Barker gives the team another option on the line. 

Chris White
News
The Patriots have brought back linebacker Chris White and have now filled out their 53-man roster.

White played sporadically with New England last season. He contributed to nine tackles.

Rob Gronkowski
News
Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski didn't have a great game Thursday, but was still a big part of the team's offense.

Gronkowski finished with six receptions for 68 yards. He was targeted a team-high 10 times during the contest. Gronkowski saw a lot of time on the field, indicating that he's close to fully healed after his offseason issues. Backup tight end Tim Wright was not a factor in the game, leaving Gronk as the only threat at the position. Despite receiving a fair amount of targets, the team opted to go to other options in the red zone.

Gronkowski will take on the Bears Week 8.

Sealver Siliga
News
The Patriots placed defensive lineman Sealver Siliga on the injured reserve Saturday with a designation to return.

Siliga suffered a foot injury in Week 3 against the Raiders. He'll be sidelined at least eight weeks after being placed on the IR. Siliga started two of the team's first three games while recording eight tackles.

Alfonzo Dennard
News
Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee) is active as expected for Sunday night's game against the Bengals. The other injured players suiting up are linebacker Jamie Collins (thigh), cornerback Alfonzo Dennard (thigh), defensive tackle Dominique Easley (knee) and defensive end Chandler Jones (shoulder).
Stevan Ridley
News
Patriots coach Bill Belichick addressed the decision to promote running back Jonas Gray from the practice squad and the opportunity that he'll get moving forward with Stevan Ridley out for the remainder of the season, per ESPN.

Gray was added to the live rosters hours before Week 7 against the Jets and emerged as the team's second option behind Shane Vereen on Thursday night. He rushed for 12 yards on three carries.

"I think Jonas has been solid for us all the way through preseason," Belichick said. "He's done a good job in practice and got an opportunity last night -- not a lot of opportunities -- but he had some blitz pickup opportunities and a few carries. He works hard and he's a tough kid, a bigger back obviously -- more in the Ridley size range."

Belichick would not indicate whether Gray would be used as the team's second option in the ground game moving forward.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Nate Ebner
News
The Patriots listed 13 players on their final injury report for their Week 8 home game against Chicago. Chandler Jones (hip) is the only player on the list to be ruled out for the game.

Shane Vereen was a late addition to the report because of an illness. He missed practice Friday and was labeled questionable. Dan Connolly (concussion), Dominique Easley (shoulder, knee), Nate Ebner (finger), Cameron Fleming (finger), Matthew Slater (shoulder) and Bryan Stork (concussion) were deemed questionable.

Meanwhile, Tom Brady (ankle), Brandon Browner (ankle), Jamie Collins (thigh), Dont'a Hightower (knee) and Devin McCourty (rib) were all full participants in Friday's practice session and officially ruled probable for Sunday.

Injury
Finger - Questionable for Week 8 vs. Chicago

News

Devin McCourty
News
The Patriots should have a fair amount of players listed as questionable on the injury report.

Brandon Browner , Jamie Collins, Dominique Easley, Dont'a Hightower and Matthew Slater are all active for the contest. All five players were listed as questionable coming into the game.

The team will also have Chandler Jones and Devin McCourty. Both Jones and McCourty were listed as probable on the team's injury report. 

Injury
Rib - Probable for Week 8 vs. Chicago
Julian Edelman
News
Patriots wideout Julian Edelman hauled in four passes Thursday against the Jets.

Edelman finished with just 44, which ranked fourth on the club. He was targeted nine times, which was second behind Rob Gronkowski. Tom Brady was able to spread the ball around to a number of offensive players, which helped lead to Edelman having a less-than-stellar yardage game.

He'll look for more Week 8 against Chicago.

Brandon Bolden
News
Patriots running back Shane Vereen was a late adition to the injury report due to an illness. He was officially ruled as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears, the Boston Globe reports. Vereen was unable to practice Friday because of the ailment. He's coming off a two-touchdown performance in Week 7 against the Jets.

If he is unable to play on Sunday, the team will likely turn to Brandon Bolden, Jonas Gray and James White to shoulder the load.

Cameron Gordon
News
The Patriots released six players and placed two on injured reserve to get down to the 75-man limit. Released were defensive lineman Ben Bass, defensive backs Jemea Thomas and Travis Hawkins, receivers Derrick Johnson and Wilson Van Hooser, and linebacker Deontae Skinner.

The team put rookie running back Tyler Gaffney and rookie linebacker Cameron Gordon on injured reserve.
Injury

"Anything between me and the players is between myself and the players," he told Boston.com.

Pressed about the incident and how it could impact the status of the veteran for the Week 8 game against visiting Chicago, Belichick merely talked about the difficulty of the matchup.

Injury

News

Shane Vereen
News
Patriots running back Shane Vereen is expected to play Week 8 against the Bears.

Vereen missed Friday's practice due to an illness, and is considered questionable for Sunday's game. Despite the illness, it would be a surprise if Vereen did not play, according to the report. Vereen scored two touchdowns Week 7 against the Jets. 

Injury
Illness - Questionable for Week 8 vs. Chicago
Timothy Wright
News
After seemingly breaking out as Tom Brady's second tight end Week 5 against Cincinnati, the Patriots' Timothy Wright did find the end zone for a second straight game Week 6 at Buffalo. But he did so in minimalist fashion, catching one pass on one target for 1 yard.

It's not like the Patriots weren't throwing the ball, either. In fact, Brady set season-highs in passing yards (361) and passing touchdowns (four). He just didn't look Wright's way much when he was on the field.

That wasn't all that often, I should add. Wright played only 23 percent of the Patriots' snaps, which was actually an improvement from the 22 percent he played in Week 5. Unless the Patriots make a concerted effort to get him the ball, he's not going to be able to do much of that.

The Patriots like to use two tight ends as much as any team in football, and Wright remains on the periphery in Fantasy for that reason alone. But he's little more than a desperation bye-week replacement in his current role.

Chandler Jones
News
Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones missed practice Tuesday with a hip injury and is expected to be sidelined for about a month, the Boston Globe reports.

Jones recorded four tackles and a sack in the team's Week 7 win over the Jets last Thursday after entering the contest listed as probable. He has posted 4.5 sacks over six games this season.

Injury
Hip - Out for Week 8 vs. Chicago
Brandon LaFell
News
In his Week 8 waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg takes a look at the wide receivers most worth adding ahead of this week's games.

The list is headlined by new Seahawks' No. 1 Doug Baldwin (33 percent owned), with Odell Beckham (68 percent) of the Giants, Davante Adams (21 percent) of the Packers, Allen Robinson (34 percent) of the Jaguars and Brandon LaFell (56 percent) of the Patriots rounding out the remainder of the top five.

If you need to drop someone to make room for any pickups this week, he also recommends possibly parting ways with the Vikings' Cordarrelle Patterson (81 percent) or the Steelers' Markus Wheaton (35 percent). 

Marcus Cannon
News
The Patriots started two rookies on the offensive line Monday for the first time since 2005. Cameron Fleming started at right guard and Bryan Stork started at center; both were fourth-round picks.

Dan Connolly started the first three games at center before starting at left guard against the Chiefs. The shuffling continued throughout the blowout loss as New England sought to find a combination that could protect Tom Brady. Left tackle Nate Solder was beaten badly on Tamba Hali's strip-sack in the third quarter, then got benched for Marcus Cannon.

James Develin
News
The Patriots received minor contributions from several role players during Sunday's playoff win over the Colts.

Austin Collie and Michael Hoomanawanui each had one reception. Collie finished with 15 yards on one target while Hoomanawanui finished with 6 yards on one target. In the ground game, James Develin had one carry for no gain in a 43-22 win.
Akeem Ayers
News
Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt expressed Wednesday part of the reason the team traded Akeem Ayers to the Patriots was that he didn't provide a big enough boost on special teams, according to The Tennessean. Ayers, who was inactive for five of the team's seven games, was a second-round pick in 2011.

"I think we had an opportunity, and I think it was good for both parties,'' Whisenhunt said. "It gave Akeem a chance to get a fresh start, and it gave us a chance to get something in exchange for that.

"I think really a big part of it was special teams. When you're in that role, you've got to be able to contribute special teams wise, and we needed that, and we just didn't feel like we were getting enough in that area."

Caylin Hauptmann
News
The Patriots re-signed offensive lineman Caylin Hauptmann to their practice squad and released offensive lineman Chris Martin from the squad, the team announced.
Vince Wilfork
News
Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork was in the right place at not only the right time, but also the best possible time Week 3 against Oakland. With the Raiders on the verge of scoring a game-tying touchdown with about a minute to play in the fourth quarter, a pass intended for Denarius Moore was deflected off two Patriots defenders and into a diving Wilfork's arms for a game-clinching interception.

It was the third interception of Wilfork's career. The other two came in 2011. He finished Week 3 with three tackles, including one solo.

Casey Walker
News
Patriots receivers Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins are healthy scratches for Monday's game in Kansas City. Also inactive for New England are cornerback Alfonzo Dennard (shoulder), defensive end Zach Moore, defensive lineman Casey Walker, guard Josh Kline and offensive tackle Jordan Devey.

According to ESPN Boston, the following players are not expected to dress for the Patriots Friday night against Philadelphia: wide receiver Aaron Dobson, safety Tavon Wilson, safety Kanorris Davis, tight end D.J.

Meanwhile, Tom Brady (ankle), Brandon Browner (ankle), Jamie Collins (thigh), Dont'a Hightower (knee) and Devin McCourty (rib) were all full participants in Friday's practice session and officially ruled probable for Sunday.

Injury
Ankle - Probable for Week 8 vs. Chicago
Jimmy Garoppolo
News
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady popped up on the injury report as a limited participant in practice because of an ankle injury he suffered on Friday, the Boston Herald reports.

Brady was officially labeled questionable for Week 6 at Buffalo. He is coming off a bounce-back 292-yard, two-touchdown performance Week 5 against the Bengals. Brady has not missed a game since tearing his ACL in 2008. If he can't start, head coach Bill Belichick will turn to rookie Jimmy Garoppolo for the start.

Jonas Gray
News
The Patriots opted to use Jonas Gray as their backup running back Thursday against the Jets.

Gray was promoted from the practice squad prior to the contest. He received three carries, gaining 12 yards. Gray was not targeted in the passing game. He'll look to contribute more Week 8 against the Bears.

Kona Schwenke

Vereen was unable to practice Friday because of the ailment. He's coming off a two-touchdown performance in Week 7 against the Jets.

If he is unable to play on Sunday, the team will likely turn to Brandon Bolden, Jonas Gray and James White to shoulder the load.
