IRRob Gronkowski TE NE (9) 9 hours ago1 Comment
Gronkowski (back) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Saturday, ESPN's Field Yates reports.
Gronkowski required surgery Friday to repair a herniated disc in his back, prematurely ending his 2016 campaign. He'll finish the season with career-lows across the board consisting of 25 receptions for 540 yards and three touchdowns. While fellow tight end Martellus Bennett likely stands to be the primary beneficiary of Gronkowski's absence, wideouts Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell could each be in store for an increased market share of the Patriots' passing attack as well.
OUTJ.C. Tretter GB (4) 10 hours ago
The Packers have downgraded Tretter (knee) to out for Sunday's game against the Texans, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.
This designation update is relatively unsurprising, as Tretter was already considered doubtful to go. The current expectation is that Corey Linsley will be recalled from the PUP list to fill in at center.
Nick Mangold NYJ (11) 10 hours ago
Mangold (ankle) does not appear on the Jets' injury report in advance of Monday night's game against the Colts, ESPN reports.
Mangold logged his first full practice in over a month Thursday and followed it up with another pair of uninhibited sessions Friday and Saturday. Thus, he appears in full health and appears set to play Monday night.
OUTT.J. Lang GB (4) 10 hours ago
Lang (foot) has been downgraded to out for the Packers' game against the Texans on Sunday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.
This news is unsurprising considering Lang was sidelined at practice all week. Either Don Barclay or Jason Spriggs will presumably fill in for the guard in the team's starting unit.
Nick Marshall DB NYJ (11) 10 hours ago
Marshall (ankle) does not appear on the Jets' injury report in advance of Monday night's game against the Colts, ESPN reports.
Marshall missed last week's matchup with the Patriots due to a sprained ankle, but was a full participant in Saturday's practice and is in line to play Monday night, barring a setback prior to kickoff.
QDamarious Randall DB GB (4) 10 hours ago
Randall (groin) is now listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.
Randall was limited in practice Wednesday before being subsequently removed from the injury report. He appears to have suffered a setback, so his late addition to the injury report is a bit concerning. He led the team in tackles in Week 12's win over the Eagles after missing the previous five games. Ladarius Gunter and Josh Hawkins would presumably be in line to help fill in if Randall cannot go.
QMuhammad Wilkerson DL NYJ (11) 10 hours ago
Wilkerson (ankle) is questionable to play in Monday's game against the Colts, ESPN reports.
Wilkerson was a late addition to the injury report as it appears he injured his ankle during Saturday's practice. If he can't play, Anthony Johnson may be forced into the starting lineup.
QBruce Carter LB NYJ (11) 10 hours ago
Carter (quadriceps) is questionable to play in Monday's game against the Colts, ESPN reports.
Carter was limited in practice by a quad injury throughout the week, but he was able to give a go last Sunday dealing with the same issue. Look for his status to be confirmed prior to kickoff.
QMarcus Williams DB NYJ (11) 10 hours ago
Williams (ankle) is questionable to play in Monday's game against the Colts, ESPN reports.
Williams has been tending to a high-ankle sprain since early November. If he's ultimately ruled out, Darryl Roberts and Juston Burris may be in line for additional snaps at corner.
QBreno Giacomini NYJ (11) 10 hours ago
Giacomini (shoulder) is questionable to play in Monday's game against the Colts, ESPN reports.
After logging a DNP on Thursday, Giacomini fit in two limited practice sessions Friday and Saturday. If he can't play, look for Brent Qvale to take over at left tackle.
