Broncos Vs. Patriots Injury Report: New England Lists 13 Players As Questionable Vs. Denver

The New England Patriots declared 13 players questionable for Saturday's 2012 NFL Playoffs game against the Denver Broncos. Free safety Patrick Chung reappeared on Friday's injury report as a limited participant due to his knee. However, there seems little reason to believe that he won't play in the game.

Logan Mankins and Sebastian Vollmer are in a position to play after missing several games due to various injuries. Vollmer's return would spell the end of Nate Solder starting for the Patriots.

Wes Welker, wide receiver extraordinaire, is on the report with a knee injury, but he could just as easily burn through the Broncos secondary. Still, tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez are also going to be able to pick up any slack if Welker isn't involved much in the game.

Here is the complete injury report:

Name Pos Injury Wed. Thu. Fri. Game Status
Kyle Arrington CB Foot LP LP LP questionable
Marcus Cannon T Ankle - LP LP questionable
Patrick Chung FS Knee LP - LP questionable
Dan Connolly G Groin LP LP LP questionable
Dane Fletcher LB Thumb LP LP LP questionable
James Ihedigbo DB Shoulder LP LP LP questionable
Logan Mankins G Knee LP LP LP questionable
Rob Ninkovich OLB Hip LP LP LP questionable
Matthew Slater WR Shoulder LP LP LP questionable
Brandon Spikes ILB Knee LP LP LP questionable
Sebastian Vollmer T Back/Foot LP LP LP questionable
Wes Welker WR Knee LP LP LP questionable
Tracy White LB Abdomen LP LP LP questionable
