Injury report: Stork sits out, Browner limited

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots rookie starting center Bryan Stork (knee) did not participate in Wednesday's practice.

Stork injured his knee in the second quarter of Saturday's 35-31 win against the Baltimore Ravens and did not return. In Stork's absence, right guard Ryan Wendell shifted to center and reserve offensive lineman Josh Kline played right guard. Stork's availability for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts will be a storyline to watch this week.

Cornerback Brandon Browner (knee) was limited in practice. Browner injured his knee in the third quarter of Saturday's win and watched the remainder of the game from the sidelines.

Browner will speak with media on Thursday, but did say Wednesday that he is feeling good.

Linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) and defensive tackle Chris Jones (elbow) are new additions to the report, as they were both limited participants. Hightower has spent time throughout the season on the injury report with a shoulder injury. It is unknown if it is the same injury that he battled earlier this season.

Wide receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder/toe) continued to be a limited participant in practice. LaFell played 61 of 65 offensive snaps in Saturday's win.

Wide receiver Julian Edelman (concussion) and running back Jonas Gray (ankle) were removed from the team's injury report.

Quarterback Tom Brady (ankle) remained a full participant.

On the Colts' side, cornerbacks Vontae Davis (knee) and Greg Toler (groin) missed practice.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said he doesn't think the injuries will cause either player to miss Sunday's game. He hopes both players will practice Thursday.
