The New England Patriots will be without their top pass rusher for the second consecutive week as Chandler Jones has been officially ruled out with an ankle injury.
The rookie defensive end suffered the injury Nov. 18 against the Indianapolis Colts and has not practiced since. Top backup Jermaine Cunningham will be serving the first of a four-game suspension for a failed drug test, which means veteran Trevor Scott will likely be pushed into a larger role.
Guard Logan Mankins (ankle/calf) and tight end Rob Gronkowski (forearm) have also been ruled out.
Julian Edelman, who suffered a concussion last Thursday against the Jets, is listed as questionable, but was seen packing a travel bag in the locker room Friday. Source: MassLive.com Attached Thumbnails

In some news that you already knew, those three will not be suiting up to play the Miami Dolphins.All three of them did not practice all week, so this was expected.

TB12 Stands Tall In SI’s Football’s Greatest, But Maybe TOO Tall
Patriots QB Tom Brady is enjoying a NFL MVP worthy season in 2012 thus far. In 11 games, he has a QB rating of 105.2 with 3,299 yards, 24 touchdowns and only THREE measly interceptions. If he continues at this pace, he is a shoe in for the league’s Most Valuable Player.

From the onset of training camp, the New England Patriots offensive line has been a work in progress, a mix of experience and youth that led to a handful of questions.
There's still uncertainty surrounding who's playing which position each week, but there's little doubt remaining about the level of protection provided to the quarterback.
After surrendering 12 sacks...

Bill Belichick and the Patriots created Spygate. The New Orleans Saints created Bountygate. This week, The Sporting News’ David Whitley created Tattoogate.
As foolish as his column was on Colin Kaepernick‘s ink, Whitley certainly succeeded in gaining the attention he desired when he published his views of the 49ers quarterback breaking the mold of the clean-cut QB.
Pick up one of our Belichick DO YOUR JOB tees, they make great presents for any Patriots super fan and you won’t find anything like them anywhere else!
