LB Dorian O’Daniel
OL Kahlil McKenzie
OL Jimmy Murray
OL L. Duvernay-Tardif
WR Kelvin Benjamin
TE Deon Yelder
LB Tanoh Kpassagnon
Only O’Daniel had an injury designation (out) on the final injury report released on Friday afternoon. All other players on the report had no designation (meaning their status was probable) for the game.
Duvernay-Tardif was injured and placed on injured reserve in Week 5. He was just returned from injured reserve this week, but was practicing with the team under his designated for return status for the three weeks before that. It’s not known whether Duvernay-Tardif has suffered some kind of setback in his recovery.
Kelvin Benjamin, Kahlil McKenzie, Jimmy Murray, Deon Yelder and Tanoh Kpassagnon are all healthy scratches; none appeared on the injury report this week.
Here is the inactive list for the Patriots in today’s game.
