Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola ruled out against Jets
Sunday December 27th, 2015

The New England Patriots have ruled out receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola and defensive backs Patrick Chung and Devin McCourty for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets, the team announced.

Edelman was expected to miss the game and will miss his sixth in a row as he recovers from a broken foot. Amendola will miss the game after tweaking his knee (listed as a sprain) last week against Tennessee. Receiver Brandon LaFell, dealing with a foot injury, was listed as questionable this week but traveled with the team.

Chung has reportedly dealt with a foot injury for the past four weeks and will sit out for the first time with the injury. McCourty will miss a second straight game with a high ankle sprain and was considered unlikely to play this week.

The Patriots (12–2) take on their AFC East rival Jets (9–5) at 1 p.m. ET Sunday.
