Roberts (thigh) will play in Sunday's game versus the Steelers.
Roberts' injury surfaced Saturday but it turned out not to be serious. The third-year pro holds little IDP value with just 55 tackles, one sack and four pass breakups through 13 games.
Roberts has a thigh injury and is questionable for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh.
Roberts was added to the injury report Saturday so the specifics and severity of the injury remain unclear. Albert McClellan is next up on the depth chart at middle linebacker, but he hasn't played more than one defensive snap since Week 3.
Roberts recorded six tackles (four solo), including a sack, in Sunday's loss to Tennessee.
Roberts' sack was his first of the season. He hasn't been a prolific pass rusher through his first few seasons but has shown he can provide some pass rush when called upon. The Patriots have a bye in Week 11 before taking on the Jets in Week 12.
Roberts (groin) returned to Monday's game after a brief exit, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
A quick trip down medical lane served Roberts well and it now seems as though he's good to go following the return to action. Roberts should re-assume his role at starting inside linebacker.
Roberts is questionable to return to Monday's game against the Bills due to a groin injury.
Look for more updates to emerge as information becomes available. Should he be ruled out for the remainder of the contest, look for Nicholas Grigsby to see increased reps on defense.
