Patriots | Friday injury report (Fri Oct 24, 05:17 PM) - New England Patriots DE Chandler Jones (hip) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 24, and has been ruled out for Week 8. OG Dan Connolly (concussion), DE Dominique Easley (knee, shoulder), FS Nate Ebner (finger), OT Cameron Fleming (finger), WR Matthew Slater (shoulder) and C Bryan Stork (concussion) were limited during practice and are listed as questionable. CB Brandon Browner (ankle), LB Jamie Collins (thigh), LB Dont'a Hightower (knee) and FS Devin McCourty (rib) fully participated in practice and are listed as probable.

Our View: Jones being out is a massive blow to a defense that already lost lynchpin inside linebacker Jared Mayo for the season. They could be a lot of shootouts in the next few weeks with their front seven lacking its two best players for at least a month.
