Brandon Lloyd (knee) was limited in Tuesday's practice.
Lloyd has been limited in practices since late October. Although he was replaced in two-wide sets by Julian Edelman last week, Lloyd could see more snaps in increased three-wide packages with Rob Gronkowski out of the lineup.
At Flex Forte or Lloyd?
Lloyd or Hillman (DEN) as a flex?
Lloyd will get more work because Gronk is out but he is now the 3rd receiver on the depth chart for NE (Behind Welker and Edelman). Hernandez is back to pick up the slack at TE.
Hillman will start in place of the injured McGahee and should get a decent number of touches...
