The Patriots are a bit beat up on the defensive side of the ball, much like the Bills in advance of this Sunday’s game at Ralph Wilson Stadium, but the addition of New England QB Tom Brady as questionable is a bit of a surprise.
Brady was added to New England’s injury report Friday after being limited in practice due to an ankle injury. Over the years Brady has often been listed as probable with a shoulder injury, but questionable is a rather new designation for the signal caller. The only other quarterback on the Patriots roster is rookie Jimmy Garoppolo. It’s hard to believe that Brady would miss a game knowing his highly competitive nature.
Brady’s starting C Bryan Stork, another rookie, suffered a concussion in practice Thursday and did not practice Friday. He too is questionable for the game, which could prompt yet another offensive line shuffle in advance of a game.
Veteran guard Dan Connolly would presumably step in for Stork if he cannot play Sunday.
