New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who missed Wednesday's practice and was limited Thursday with a left shoulder injury, was removed from the injury report Friday afternoon.

The Patriots had 14 players who were limited and all are officially "questionable" for Sunday's game. The three players listed as full participation are all "probable" for the contest.

Analysis:

Good news for Matthew Slater, Kyle Arrington and center Dan Connolly, however, as they were all listed as full participants after being limited in practice last week. All will play a role for this team in every phase of the game.

One of the more exciting aspects of last week's game was how fresh, healthy and energized the Patriots looked. Hopefully, the team is just being cautionary and the same aspect is visible this Sunday.

On a side note, Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed - dealing with a left ankle injury - was the only player on the Ravens injury report.
