Patriots WR Brandon Lloyd questionable due to thigh injury

The Patriots are already without tight end Aaron Hernandez. They may also be missing their most-targeted wide receiver Sunday night against the Ravens. Brandon Lloyd @mrblloyd is questionable to play in the game because of a thigh injury. He participated in every practice this week, but he was limited. Along with his team-high 21 targets, Lloyd leads the Patriots with 13 catches and is second with 129 receiving yards.

Fantasy Analysis:

The local scribes seem to think that Lloyd will play against the Ravens, but this is a tricky situation. This is a Sunday night game, so we probably won't know whether Lloyd will be active or not until 7 p.m. Eastern. It all depends on what you've got on your bench, but considering his limited practice time and the difficult matchup on the road, I would most likely sit Lloyd.
If Lloyd does stay on the sidelines, well, things just keep getting better and better for Wes Welker.
