Posted Jan 12, 2005

Injury report for the AFC Divisional Round playoff game between the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts at Gillette Stadium, Foxboro, Mass., Sunday September 19, 2004.

It appears that Patriots coach Bill Belichick has made some changes to his policy of perpetually placing his QBs on the list. Also, more on DL, Richard Seymour.

OUT: Definitely will not play.
DOUBTFUL: At least 75 percent chance will not play.
QUESTIONABLE: A 50-50 chance will not play.
PROBABLE: Virtual certainty that player will be available for normal duty.

NOTES: DL, Richard Seymour has been listed on the injury report since the regular season game against the New York Jets (12/26/04), when he was injured on a play away from the action by a low block from Jets lineman Kevin Mawae. While Seymour shrugged the block off as just part of the game, some questions remain as to the nature of the block.

Seymour has not been able to return to the field since incurring that injury, and is hopeful to return to the field in time for the game vs the Colts. If Seymour cannot go, then DL Jarvis Green will probably get the call.
