Wise (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's AFC Championship Game at Kansas City, Kevin Duffy of the Boston Herald reports. Wise shed his injury designation due to an ankle issue Thursday after practicing fully, so this appears to be a tactical decision for the Patriots. Derek Rivers will continue to start at defensive end, as Wise as been inactive for both playoff games thus far.
Wise is not listed on Thursday's injury report, Nora Princiotti of The Boston Globe reports. Wise sat out Sunday's divisional-round win over the Chargers due to a knee injury, but appears to have managed a full recovery. The second-year pro is on track to suit up for this weekend's AFC Championship Game at Kansas City, on the heels of a 2018 regular season in which he logged 30 tackles and 4.5 sacks in 16 games, including three starts.
Wise (ankle) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice. Wise was inactive for Sunday's divisional-round win over the Chargers, as the ankle issue forced him to miss his first game of the season. The 24-year-old seems on track to suit up for this weekend's AFC Championship Game at Kansas City.
Wise (ankle) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Wise won't be able to play through his sprained ankle, so he'll be sidelined Sunday while Derek Rivers fills in at defensive end across from Trey Flowers. Adrian Clayborn could see additional work on the defensive line as well.
Wise is still struggling with his sprained ankle and may be held out of Sunday's divisional-round game against the Chargers, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports. Wise was expected to play, but an evaluation Sunday morning went worse than expected. If he's ultimately held out, look for Derek Rivers to pick up the start at right defensive end.
