Friday Injury Report Surprises

Today’s injury report looks a little bit different from the one we looked over on Wednesday.

The biggest name on the report is Randy Moss, who did not practice today, and is listed as “questionable” with a back injury. Other new names on the list include Darius Butler, who is “questionable” with a thigh injury, and Shawn Springs, who is also “questionable” with a knee injury. Both Butler and Springs did have limited participation in practice today.

Wes Welker did not practice today either, after having limited participation yesterday. He is also listed on the “questionable” category. As expected, Jerod Mayo is “out” this week, and thus far is the only Patriot to be declared so.

If for some reason both Moss and Welker were unable to play on Sunday, the already tough matchup against he Falcons suddenly becomes much more difficult.

Here is the full report:
