New York Jets vs New England Patriots: Wednesday Injury Report

By Mike Nash

Tomorrow night the New England Patriots will welcome the New York Jets to town for an 8:25 PM kickoff in Foxboro. This is obviously a short week for both teams, so both are a little banged up. Here are the statuses for the injured players for the Jets and Patriots.

New York Jets

Out- WR Greg Salas ( wrist/ankle) , LB Trevor Reilly ( Knee)Analysis- Salas has been a very dependable receiver for the Jets this season, so losing him is a tough blow. Reilly has seen time in some SUB packages and on special teams.

Probable- TE Jace Amaro ( Knee) , OL Willie Colon ( knee) , WR Eric Decker ( hamstring) , OL Breno Giacomini ( back) , LB David Harris ( shoulder) , DL Damon Harrison ( Ankle) , RB Chris Johnson ( Ankle) , OL Nick Mangold ( Shoulder) , WR David Nelson ( Ankle) , CB Darrin Walls ( Knee)Analysis- With Salas out, the Jets are lucky to get back WR David Nelson this week after he missed last weeks game vs the Broncos. The rest will all be active tomorrow night for the Jets.

New England Patriots

Out- LB Jerod Mayo ( Knee) , RB Stevan Ridley ( knee), DB Nate Ebner ( Finger) , OL Cameron Fleming ( Finger)Analysis- Mayo is a huge blow to the Patriots LB core. Shane Vereen will have to carry the workload for the Patriots in Ridley’s absence.

Questionable – OL Dan Connolly ( Concussion) , OL Bryan Stork ( Concussion) , CB Brandon Browner ( Ankle) , LB Jamie Collins ( thigh) , DL Dom Easley ( shoulder/knee) , LB Dontá Hightower ( knee) , WR Matthew Slater ( Shoulder)Analysis- Some big names listed here for the Patriots. It will be interesting to see if Connolly and Stork are able to play. If they cannot, the Patriots will be down three offensive lineman.

Probable – QB Tom Brady ( Ankle) , S Devin McCourty ( Ribs) , DE Chandler Jones ( Shoulder)Analysis- Do not get excited Jets fans. Brady will be active and ready to go tomorrow night. Same for McCourty and Jones.
