Patriots only have one player left on injury report ahead of Chargers game

Bill Belichick, Patriots

The New England Patriots are coming into this coming Sunday’s AFC Divisional Round showdown with the Los Angeles Chargers in Foxboro with an almost fully healthy roster.

According to Mark Reiss of ESPN, defensive end Deatrcich Wise Jr. is the only remaining player questionable for the Chargers game.

Only one player on the Patriots’ final injury report: DE Deatrich Wise Jr. (ankle/questionable).

Other notable players who were on the list earlier this week are tight end Dwayne Allen, safety Devin McCourty, and wideout Cordarrelle Patterson, but all their names have now been wiped off the report, meaning they are good to go for the all-important matchup with Phillip Rivers and the Chargers.

The Patriots benefited from an extra week of rest, having secured a wild-card round bye. In their most recent game, they torched the New York Jets, 38-3, in a Week 17 win at home, where they will look to clinch a ticket this weekend to the AFC Championship Game.

Los Angeles, on the other hand, has four players currently deemed questionable. Cornerback Brandon Facyson, fullback Derek Watt, tight end Hunter Henry, and linebacker Kyle Wilson are all questionable, though, they were full participants during the team’s Friday practice.

The Patriots are 15-0 in their last 10 games as the home team.
