While the Ravens only had one player listed on today’s injury report, the Patriots had 18, including the face of their franchise.
Quarterback Tom Brady missed practice today because of a left shoulder injury, although he is still expected to play on Sunday.
A number of other key Patriots were limited today, including wide receiver Wes Welker (knee), wide receiver Deion Branch (knee), safety Patrick Chung (knee), defensive tackle Kyle Love (ankle), guard Logan Mankins (knee), linebacker Rob Ninkovich (hip), right tackle Nate Solder (concussion), linebacker Brandon Spikes (knee) and tight end Aaron Hernandez (concussion).
Meanwhile, the Ravens’ half of the injury report is quite empty. Safety Ed Reed, who was limited with an ankle injury, is the lone player listed today.
Defensive tackle Art Jones (leg) and linebackers Jameel McClain (knee) and Brendon Ayanbadejo (quad) are apparently in good shape health-wise.
