Tom Brady is pretty thin on receiving options entering Thursday night’s game against the Jets.
The Patriots released their final practice report of the week on Wednesday, giving game statuses for the 14 players, including running back Shane Vereen (OUT) who was place on injured reserve on Tuesday, listed on the injury report.
Rob Gronkowski (arm/back) and Danny Amendola (groin) are both listed as “doubtful” for the game, which will likely leave Brady with a lack of reliable options in the passing game. Rookie receiver Aaron Dobson (hamstring), who was inactive in Week 1, and tight end Zach Sudfeld (hamstring), who was injured during the season opener, were given “questionable” designations for Thursday’s game.
The other players listed as questionable on the practice report include: running back Brandon Bolden (knee), safeties Nate Ebner (ankle) and Duron Harmon (hamstring), wide receiver Matthew Slater (knee), offensive lineman Will Svitek (knee) and running back Leon Washington (thigh).
Running back Stevan Ridley (shoulder) and cornerbacks Marquice Cole (hamstring) and Alfonzo Dennard (ankle) were officially listed as “probable” on the report.
The Jets, meanwhile, have ruled defensive lineman Quentin Coples and wide receiver Jeremy Kerley “out” for the game. They also listed 18 players as “probable” on the report, which includes wide receiver Santonio Holmes, former Patriots tight end Kellen Winslow and cornerback Dee Milliner.
