FOXBORO, Mass. — Quarterback Tom Brady was taken off the injury report Friday, which means the left shoulder injury will have no bearing on his availability for Sunday's game against the Ravens — not that it should be considered much of a surprise.
Fourteen Patriots were listed as questionable for the AFC Championship after being limited in all three practices this week: wide receiver Deion Branch (knee), offensive lineman Marcus Cannon (ankle), safety Patrick Chung (knee), linebacker Dane Fletcher (thumb), tight end Aaron Hernandez (concussion), safety James Ihedigbo (shoulder), defensive tackle Kyle Love (ankle), left guard Logan Mankins (knee), linebacker Rob Ninkovich (hip), tackle Nate Solder (concussion), linebacker Brandon Spikes (knee), tackle Sebastian Vollmer (foot, back), wide receiver Wes Welker (knee) and linebacker Tracy White (abdomen).
Three Patriots were listed as probable after fully participating all week: cornerback Kyle Arrington (foot), center Dan Connolly (groin) and wide receiver Matthew Slater (shoulder).
Vollmer was the only player who missed Saturday's victory against the Broncos for injury reasons, as the other six inactive players were healthy scratches. As such, Vollmer might be the only true injury concern for Sunday.
