Broncos Vs. Patriots: New England Injury Report Is Quite Long

The New England Patriots probably didn't expect a re-match of December's hyped game against the Denver Broncos when they prepared for the playoffs, but Denver's stunning victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers last week has put them (and us) in an unexpected position. And while the Patriots only had one player missing in practice on Wednesday, over a dozen players were limited as they prepare for a Broncos team that's not ailing nearly as much.

New England's official injury report can be found here, but it's shown below:

Did Not Participate

- DT Kyle Love

Limited Participation

- CB Kyle Arrington

- S Patrick Chung

- C Dan Connolly

- WR Julian Edelman

- LB Dane Fletcher

- S James Ihedibgo

- OT Matt Light

- C Logan Mankins

- CB Devin McCourty

- LB Rob Ninkovich

- WR Matthew Slater

- LB Brandon Spikes

- OT Sebastian Vollmer

- WR Wes Welker

- LB Tracy White

Full Participation

- QB Tom Brady

The Patriots' offense could be limited if the likes of Welker, Mankins and Light are hobbled, but the Broncos' defense should still be facing quite a passing attack when both sides line up this weekend.
