LB Kyle Van Noy (illness) did not practice Friday, Nov. 29, and is listed as questionable. S Patrick Chung (illness, heel, chest), LB Jamie Collins (illness), OL Jermaine Eluemunor (illness), CB Stephon Gilmore (illness), LB Dont'a Hightower (illness), CB Joejuan Williams (illness), OT Isaiah Wynn (illness), LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (knee), OT Marcus Cannon (illness), WR Phillip Dorsett (concussion), S Nate Ebner (ankle, back), WR Julian Edelman (shoulder), CB Jason McCourty (groin), WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle), WR Matthew Slater (hamstring) and OL Byron Cowart (head) were limited in practice Friday and are also listed as questionable. QB Tom Brady (elbow) returned to a full practice Friday and has been removed from the injury report. DE John Simon (elbow) was not given a practice designation for a second straight day but also no longer appears on the injury report.

Our View: About a third of the Patriots roster is questionable in another typical chapter of Belichickian gamesmanship. All of the key names on this list should be available on Sunday.
