On Saturday afternoon, the New England Patriots announced that center Bryan Stork has been upgraded to probable for Sunday’s Super Bowl XLIX matchup with the Seattle Seahawks.
Stork, a fourth-round draft choice out of Florida State last May, was listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report with a knee injury suffered in the divisional round versus the Baltimore Ravens.
Yet now, Stork finds himself among six others – quarterback Tom Brady, defensive tackles Sealver Siliga and Chris Jones, linebackers Akeem Ayers and Dont’a Hightower, as well as cornerback Darrelle Revis – as probable.
The rookie has started 12 games for the Patriots since the start of the season, but has been limited in practice over the last two weeks after missing the AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Seattle still lists six players as probable to face New England, including running back Marshawn Lynch, offensive tackle Justin Britt, guard J.R. Sweezy, cornerback Richard Sherman, in addition to safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor.
