Patriots' Devin McCourty: Leads Pats in tackles Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty led the Patriots with seven tackles (all solo) and a sack in Monday's loss to the Dolphins.

The sack is McCourty's first of the season, as the Patriots defense was consistently unable to slow down a typically pedestrian Dolphins offense. New England has a daunting task in Week 15 as it heads to Pittsburgh to try and contain Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown.

Patriots' Alan Branch: Non-participant at practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Branch (knee) did not participate in Wednesday's practice.

Branch was forced from Monday night's game against the Dolphins. His absence from Wednesday's practice indicates that Branch could be in danger of missing the Patriots' Week 15 matchup against the Steelers.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Rejoins 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski (suspension) was reinstated to the 53-man roster Wednesday, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

Gronkowski's one-game ban has been served, but the Patriots had a roster exemption for the tight end, which was accompanied by a deadline of Saturday. The team wasted no time finalizing the active roster, however, making a number of moves Wednesday that included lifting the exemption. Although his upcoming opponent, the Steelers, have made life difficult for tight ends this season, Gronkowski has tormented Pittsburgh throughout his career to the tune of 99.2 yards per game and eight touchdowns in five matchups.

Patriots' Marcus Cannon: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots placed Cannon (ankle) on injured reserve Wednesday.

Cannon hadn't practiced in weeks and was unable to make much progress since sustaining the high-ankle sprain in Week 8, prompting New England to shut him down for the season. According to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, Cannon, who is also nursing a foot injury, will likely require surgery to address the ankle issue, but the Patriots expect him to be ready to go for Organized Team Activities in the spring. New England will proceed with LaAdrian Waddle (ankle) as its right tackle, with Cameron Fleming set to serve as the backup at the position.

Patriots' Mike Gillislee: Not listed on Week 15 injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gillislee (illness) isn't listed on the Patriots' Week 15 injury report.

Gillislee -- who was under the weather heading into Monday's loss to the Dolphins -- has been inactive five straight games, as he's the odd man out behind running backs Dion Lewis, Rex Burkhead and James White. Gillislee's power-running skills may be needed by the Patriots down the stretch, but for now, he's clearly off the fantasy radar.
