The New England Patriots’ health ahead of Super Bowl XLIX no longer is in question.
Rookie starting center Bryan Stork (knee) was upgraded from questionable to probable Saturday afternoon, just over 24 hours before New England’s clash with the Seattle Seahawks on Feb. 1 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.
Stork suffered a knee injury against the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC divisional round and did not play in the AFC Championship Game. He was a limited participant in practice all week but originally was listed as questionable in the team’s injury report Friday. The Patriots did not hold a walkthrough Saturday after head coach Bill Belichick made the decision Friday to cancel it.
New England now has no players listed as questionable on its injury report. Stork joins six other Patriots who are probable for Sunday’s game.
