Broncos Vs. Patriots, NFL Playoffs 2012: New England Patriots Injury Report

The New England Patriots injury report listed 13 players as questionable after limited participation in Friday's practice in anticipation of Saturday's 2012 NFL Playoffs game against the Denver Broncos.

The most surprising change to the injury report was the practice status of safety Patrick Chung, who returned during Week 17 after a foot injury caused him to miss seven consecutive games. Chung participated fully in Thursday's practice, but tweaked a knee during the session and is now listed as questionable against the Broncos.

Denver has ruled out wide receiver Eric Decker (knee) and long snapper Lonie Paxton (personal issues) for Saturday's game.

Quarterback Tom Brady was not listed on the injury report. The entire list follows, courtesy of WEEI:

Limited Participation
CB Kyle Arrington (foot) Questionable
OL Marcus Cannon (ankle) Questionable
C Dan Connolly (groin) Questionable
LB Dane Fletcher (thumb) Questionable
S James Ihedigbo (shoulder) Questionable
