Amendola Out, Collins Doubtful For Patriots Vs. Broncos

BOSTON (CBS) -- Patriots receiver Danny Amendola will not play in Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos.

Amendola was listed as questionable Friday, but WBZ-TV's Steve Burton reports that he will not travel with the team to Denver.

Amendola, who suffered a knee injury in Monday night's win over the Bills, was again limited during Friday's practice. He was limited on Thursday after sitting out Wednesday's session.

Also listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt are wide receiver Keshawn Martin (hamstring) and tight end Michael Williams (knee).

Two other players have been ruled out for New England on Sunday: Cornerback Justin Coleman (hand) and receiver Julian Edelman (foot). Linebacker Jamie Collins made his return to practice Friday in a limited role following a three-week absence with an undisclosed illness, but is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game.

Four Patriots are probable for Sunday's big game: Defensive lineman Alan Branch (elbow), offensive linemen Marcus Cannon (toe) and Tre Jackson (knee), and defensive end Chandler Jones (abdomen).

Offensive lineman Shaq Mason (knee), who was limited Wednesday and Thursday, was removed from Friday's injury report.

The big news for Denver on Friday's injury report is that pass rusher DeMarcus Ware has already been ruled out for Sunday's game.

Guard Evan Mathis (ankle) is the lone Bronco listed as questionable, while receiver Emmanuel Sanders (ankle/finger) and tight end Owen Daniels (knee) highlight the eight Broncos listed as probable against New England.
