Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said the team "crammed three days of practice into one walkthrough" Tuesday, so it was imperative for players to participate if they wanted any chance of playing in Thursday's game versus the Jets. For what it's worth, the Patriots have listed Danny Amendola , Rob Gronkowski , and Zach Sudfeld as limited participants in the walkthrough.
Amendola has a groin injury, and it was reported earlier Tuesday that he is "almost certain" to be inactive Thursday. Gronkowski is in the same boat as he continues to recover from offseason surgeries. He isn't expected to play until Week 3. Sudfeld pulled a hamstring during Sunday's game. His status for the game is unknown.
Those Patriots practice reports are so meaningless. Plan to be without all three players this week. With all of these injuries, including Shane Vereen's misfortune, Stevan Ridley , Julian Edelman , and Kenbrell Thompkins could dominate New England's targets and touches this week.
