FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Because the New England Patriots staged a walkthrough Tuesday afternoon, it's difficult to determine exactly what the initial injury report means for Thursday night's game against the New York Jets.
Patriots running back Sammy Morris, coming back from a knee injury, was listed under "limited participation." That's better than running back LaMont Jordan, who didn't participate at all due to his nagging calf problem.
Also not participating for the Patriots were linebacker Adalius Thomas (forearm) and cornerbacks Lewis Sanders (hamstring) and Terrence Wheatley (wrist). Thomas is expected to be placed on season-ending injured reserve.
For the Jets, tight end Bubba Franks (hip), linebacker David Harris (groin) and safety
Eric Smith (head) didn't practice Tuesday. Limited were receivers Laveranues Coles (thigh), Jerricho Cotchery (shoulder) and Brad Smith, linebacker Cody Spencer (shoulder) and kicker Mike Nugent (thigh).
