The Denver Broncos and New England Patriots face off this weekend. With final practices completed, we take a look at the final injury report.
We are just a few days away from the big showdown between the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots. Which team will represent the AFC and play in one of the biggest, if not the biggest, stages in American Sports? We find out after 60 minutes of football on Sunday.
With that being said, it is time to look at the final injury report for both the Broncos and the Patriots. Let us see how the teams stack up.
First off, the Denver Broncos received some good news. Every player that is on the injury report is listed as probable. That includes Chris Harris Jr. Gary Kubiak noted that the cornerback would receive a full workload on Sunday.
Bradley Roby made an appearance for the first time on the list. He was limited today with a quad injury, but is still expected to play on Sunday.
It is a good thing to see that injury report as it is. Every player is good to go and we can expect a solid contribution from the key players of the team. Being healthy in the playoffs is a wonderful thing.
As for the Patriots, their injury report looks like this.
Some key players, including Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski were listed as questionable for the AFC Championship Game. However, I would not buy too much into it. Last week, Gronkowski was listed as questionable but did end up playing in the game.
In my opinion, Matthew Slater is the only player on the report that we could be keeping an eye on since he missed practice on Wednesday. I believe that Belichick’s MO is to have the key players on the roster participate in light work so that they are full strength for the game.
In short, I believe that both teams will be completely healthy for this game. It should make for an interesting showdown. I look forward to it. Go Broncos!
