The New England Patriots will be without center Bryan Stork on Sunday.
The rookie fourth-round pick has officially been ruled out for the AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts due to a knee injury suffered in the divisional round against the Baltimore Ravens.
Stork, who has started 12 games this season, exited for the locker room in the second quarter of the Patriots’ 35-31 win and did not return. He has been listed as a non-participant this week.
Four others have been listed as limited, including wide receiver Brandon LaFell, defensive lineman Chris Jones, linebacker Dont’a Hightower and cornerback Brandon Browner. And all four are now probable to play on Sunday.
LaFell injured his shoulder and toe during the final weeks of the regular season, while Jones (elbow), Hightower (shoulder) and Browner (knee) arrived on the injury report Wednesday.
Quarterback Tom Brady rounds out the Patriots’ side of the injury report as probable with an ankle injury.
As for the Colts’ side, starting cornerbacks Vontae Davis and Greg Toler are both questionable with knee and groin injuries, respectively. Both have been designated as limited in the team’s last two practices, while Indianapolis linebacker Erik Walden has been a full participant and is probable with a knee injury.
