Woodhead, Jones probable for AFC title game
Foxboro, MA (Sports Network) - Running back Danny Woodhead and defensive end Chandler Jones are both expected to play for the New England Patriots when the defending AFC champions face the Baltimore Ravens Sunday for the right to represent the conference in Super Bowl XLVII.
Both players left last Sunday's 41-28 victory over Houston in the AFC Divisional Round with injuries, but were full participants in Friday's practice and have each been listed as probable on the Patriots' final injury report.
Woodhead exited on New England's initial series after hurting his left thumb, while Jones was held out for the entire second half because of an ankle sprain.
The Patriots placed five players in all on Friday's report, all of whom are probable. Defensive end Trevor Scott (knee), cornerback Marquice Cole (finger) and offensive lineman Nick McDonald (shoulder) were also included.
New England did put Rob Gronkowski on injured reserve Thursday after the Pro Bowl tight end re-fractured his left forearm during the first quarter of last week's win.
