The Patriots have a total of six players listed as Questionable for Sunday night's game with the Packers, including an important pair of rookies: tight end Aaron Hernandez and cornerback Devin McCourty.
Hernandez missed Friday's practice with the flu, according to the team's injury report released this afternoon. McCourty, who left last week's game against the Bears with a rib injury, was limited in practice for the second straight day. He did not practice at all on Wednesday.
Having McCourty available Sunday night against the Packers would be huge for the Pats -- he leads the team with six picks and is third with 67 tackles.
As expected, Aaron Rodgers did not practice and is listed as Questionable. The Packers said they will make a decision regarding the starting quarterback situation on Saturday.
