What It Means: Patriots

Despite listing eight players as ‘questionable’ for Monday’s matchup, the Patriots are entering Week Thirteen relatively healthy.

Linebacker Dont’a Hightower, who had previously been listed on the week’s reports with an ankle injury, has been removed from the report, and is apparently ready to play on Monday.

Rookie defender Ronnie Perkins missed Saturday's practice with an illness, and was listed as ‘questionable’ for Week Thirteen.

Center David Andrews (shoulder), defensive tackle Christian Barmore (knee), linebacker Ja’Whaun Bentley (ribs), running back Brandon Bolden (knee), offensive tackle Trent Brown (calf), kicker Nick Folk (knee), and return specialist Gunner Olszewski were limited in practice Saturday.

Lastly, neither safety Kyle Dugger, nor running back J.J. Taylor was spotted on the practice field on Saturday, as each remains on COVID/Reserve. At this point, their chances for playing on Monday night are slim, at best.

What It Means: Bills

Much like the Patriots, Buffalo is also enjoying good health heading into Monday. The Bills listed only OL Cody Ford, FB Reggie Gilliam and DE Efe Obada as questionable.

Despite being listed throughout the week as limited participants, linebacker Matt Milano (linebacker) and defensive tackle Star Lotulelei (illness) have been removed from the report, and thus should be good-to-go for Monday night. The presence of both Milano and Lotulelei will greatly strengthen a Bills’ run defense that has recently struggled in their absence.
