Chung (ankle) will play in Sunday's game against Miami. Chung was limited in practice Thursday and Friday, but his injury doesn't appear severe enough to sideline him. Though it isn't clear if he's 100 percent, he'll be expected to start and see his typical role on the defense.
Chung (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Dolphins. Chung presumably injured his ankle last week against the Raiders. After watching Wednesday's practice from the sidelines, he practiced in limited fashion Thursday an Friday. An official ruling on his status is unlikely to be made until closer to game time Sunday. Jordan Richards would be the likely candidate to fill in at strong safety should Chung ultimately sit out.
Chung recorded a season-high nine tackles (eight solo) during Sunday's matchup against the Raiders. Chung's previous high in tackles was eight (seven solo) in a Week 2 victory over the Saints. The veteran safety managed to do all his work across 68 snaps (92.0 percent). He will look to carry that momentum into Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Chung logged eight tackles (seven solo) and a pass defended in Sunday's victory over the Saints. Chung led the way in tackles along with teammate Elandon Roberts. The veteran safety only recorded three in the team's season opening loss to the Chiefs but was much more active in this contest. He rarely saw the sideline, as he took the field for 63 snaps (97 percent) in the victory. He'll have a favorable matchup next week when the Patriots welcome rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson and the Texans to Foxborough.
Chung finished the 2016 regular season with 91 tackles and a pick over the course of 16 games. The 29-year-old, who the Patriots drafted 34th overall in the 2009 NFL draft, spent the 2013 season with the Eagles, but since his return to New England in 2014, he's remained a mainstay in the team's secondary. Chung, who serves as the Patriots' starting strong safety, is under contract with the team through the 2018 campaign.
