FOXBORO, Mass. — The New England Patriots are shockingly healthy going into Week 1 after a successful preseason and training camp.
The Patriots’ Wednesday practice report named just four players with injuries, while that list typically shoots up into double digits during the season.
Defensive end Michael Buchanan (ankle), defensive tackles Chris Jones (ankle) and Sealver Siliga (hand), and tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee) were limited in practice. Notable players who missed preseason time but not listed on the injury report include rookie defensive tackle Dominique Easley (knee), Aaron Dobson (foot) and linebackers Dont’a Hightower and Jerod Mayo (undisclosed).
Gronkowski and Siliga already said they’re good to go for Week 1 against the Miami Dolphins.
