Patriots Injury Report Is Three Times The Size Of The Chiefs

The New England Patriots will host the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football and they'll do it with three times the number of players on the injury report as the Chiefs. KC has six players listed (which you can read about here) while the Pats have 18 players listed.

A run down of all the Patriots injuries: 

Out: LB Dane Fletcher (thumb), LB Brandon Spikes (knee)

Doubtful: CB Devin McCourty (shoulder)

Questionable: CB Kyle Arrington (foot), S Patrick Chung (foot), G Dan Connolly (groin), DE Shaun Ellis (rib), RB Kevin Faulk (knee), RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis (toe), LB Gary Guyton (shoulder), S James Ihedigbo (shoulder), WR Taylor Price (hamstring), WR Matt Slater (shoulder), T Nate Solder (concussion), LB Jeff Tarpinian (illness), T Sebastian Vollmer (back)

Probable: G Brian Waters (knee), WR Wes Welker (knee)

McCourty missing the game is a big one as New England is already banged up in the secondary. I'm not really sure how to view that injury -- on the one hand, McCourty missing the game takes a good player out of the secondary but on the other hand the passing game isn't exactly KC's strength entering this game. We'll see how it goes.

The two probable guys, Waters and Welker, should play and that's big for the Patriots as both players are playing at a high level.
