The New England Patriots battle the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday afternoon.  Who is in?  Who is out?  Find out, in your New England Patriots Week 3 injury report.The Patriots have one player listed as out and that is wide receiver Matthew Slater.  Slater did not participate all week.  Slater’s loss will be felt in the kicking game since he is a special teams master.  His wizardry on punts and kick-offs will be missed.   The Patriots have six players listed as questionable and all were limited participation all week.  They are running back Brandon Bolden (knee), offensive lineman Will Svitek(knee), RB Leon Washington (thigh), tight end Rob Gronkowski (back/forearm), OL Dan Connolly (finger) and defensive back Nate Ebner (ankle).This may be the game we see Gronkowski make an appearance.  However, TE Zach Sudfeld (hamstring) is listed as probable.  Sudfeld’s health may play a role in keeping Gronkowski out another week.The Patriots have one player listed as doubtful and that is WR Danny Amendola (groin).  Amendola was limited participation all week. However, anyone with two eyes and a brain could see that he was in a truckload of pain and I would consider it a big mistake by the Patriots if he plays this week.  Same rule all season will apply to the Patriots.  Any player on the injury report not listed as out has a chance to see action on any given game day.  With the exception of Amendola this week, it is all hands on deck for the Patriots.  However, if you are RB Brandon Bolden, you are one of the healthy scratches (even though listed on the injury report).  If his knee is actually hurt then I am Tom Brady’s pillow.  That would not be a bad thing, would it? You can follow me on twitter @TheSoftParade69Talk football talk cigars talk anything, I know a little about a lot.Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
