Dean (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Dean was limited for a second straight practice, so he'll likely carry a questionable designation into the weekend if he can't go full speed Friday. Earlier in the week, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reported that Dean's knee "could take some time to heal", so it wouldn't be surprising if he sat out Sunday versus the Patriots. The third-year cornerback played 90 percent of the defensive snaps through the first two weeks of the season.
