The Patriots are back and, yes, everyone is limited in practice
The postseason has changed nothing about how the Patriots approach the injury report. They listed 20 players -- everyone on their injury report -- as being limited in Wednesday's practice. For fantasy purposes, four of those names were Wes Welker , Brandon Lloyd , Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski , per usual.
The four are all expected to play in the divisional round this weekend but not before being listed as questionable, I'm sure. Gronkowski made his return in Week 17 after five games missed due to a fractured forearm. Lloyd seems to have the most pressing injury concern after he saw a season-low 31 snaps in Week 17 against the Dolphins because of a knee problem. However, if you put him on your fantasy playoff team for some reason, Lloyd will be out there with these other Pats on Sunday afternoon against the Texans.
