New England Patriots Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Amendola (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins after practicing in a limited fashion all week.
Impact: We'd be very surprised if Amendola wasn't available in Week 12 and with Chris Hogan (shoulder) still sidelined, both Amendola and fellow wideout Brandin Cooks figure to be busy in Sunday's contest.
News: Bennett (shoulder/hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Impact: With Bennett unlikely to play this weekend, fellow tight end Dwayne Allen could see added work Sunday, but neither player represents a major threat to fellow tight end Rob Gronkowski's lofty fantasy status.
News: Hogan (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Impact: With Hogan still out, added targets figure to fall to fellow wideout Danny Amendola (knee), with Phillip Dorsett a candidate to see an expanded snap count in the Patriots' Week 12 offense.
News: Brady (Achilles) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Dolphins after practicing in a limited fashion Thursday and Friday.
Impact: The Patriots removed any potential drama regarding Brady's Sunday status by sending him into the weekend minus an injury tag. Per NESN.com, Brady downplayed his Achilles' issue Friday, noting that his absence from practice Wednesday was simply the result of receiving "a little extra treatment." Brady added, "I'm feeling great this time of year. It will be a fun week. Nothing to worry about." As a result, he can confidently be utilized in Week 12 fantasy lineups. Brady currently leads the league with 3,147 passing yards, while sporting a nifty 22:2 TD:INT ratio through 10 games.
News: Gronkowski (illness) relayed Friday that he is good to go for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Gronkowski, who noted that he feels fortunate that he was able to move past his illness quickly since missing practice Wednesday, is thus in line to head the Patriots' tight end corps in Week 12. As long as he continues to suit up he's a fantasy lineup lock, heading into Sunday's action with a total of 41 catches (on 67 targets) for 620 yards and five TDs over the course of nine outings this season.
News: Bennett (shoulder/hamstring) did not practice Friday, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.
Impact: Back-to-back missed practices suggest that Bennett is truly iffy for Sunday's game against Dolphins, though as Howe points out the tight end played through his aches and pains last Sunday against the Raiders and has yet to miss a game while a member of the Patriots. Bennett's official Week 12 status will be relayed upon the release of the team's Friday injury report.
