    Doesn't look good for Ball and Newton, but JJo has a good chance to go.

    Head Coach Gary Kubiak
    (on injury updates) “As far as the guys that did not practice, (CB) Alan Ball did not practice. (T Derek) Newton did not practice and (OLB) Brooks (Reed) did not practice. Of those three guys, Alan Ball worked with the trainers. The other two were inside. Other than that, everybody was back at practice.”
    (on if CB Johnathan Joseph could start on Monday) “I think we’ve got to keep going. It’s a long week. What’s today? Friday? So we’ve still got three days before we play and all the steps have been positive. Yesterday, he did more today. Same thing with (ILB) Bradie (James). They’re all heading toward playing, but I think until we get there, we have to be smart and see what’s going on.”
    (on if they’re still game-time decisions) “Well, I think if they all come out of practice, these guys we’re talking about, come out of practice fine tomorrow, they should be ready to go, should be no setbacks. You’re talking about some players that have been out for a while and we’re bringing them along with a process here. It’s not like he went out there and took 100 percent of the snaps today, but it’s been good.”
    (on RT Derek Newton’s status) “You know what, he got sore. That was his first workout back yesterday, got sore on us so we shut him down today. He will, hopefully, go back tomorrow and if the steps he takes are good over the course of the next couple of days, he could still be there. In response to his first time back on the field, we shut him down today.”

    Kubiak (on CB Stanford Routt) “Kind of what I told you yesterday, he can lock somebody up. He’s very talented. He was better today, as far as scheme-wise and what we did. He took more reps today. Depending on (CB) Alan (Ball) right here, he could very well be suiting up this weekend. If he does, he’s going to have to play some special teams and possibly go out there. I think it’s a good chance for him and his career and where better for him to get a chance to get that thing going again than right there where he went to school? It’s a good situation for him.”

    Wade (on CB Stanford Routt) “He’s faster than everybody, so that’s a good start. He’s very athletic. And he’s a veteran guy who can come in and understand the concepts. He’s already caught onto what we do defensively, especially on third down stuff. Which I think is where he’d have to play early for us if that would come about. And without J-Joe (CB Jonathan Joseph) he’s going to have to play.”

    CB Johnathan Joseph
    (on how he feels) “I’m good to go. I’m good to go. I practiced yesterday and today, felt fine, so I’m good to go.”
    (on if he’s starting on Monday) “Yeah, no doubt about it.”

    CB Stanford Routt
    (on what this defense is like from the inside) “It’s great. It’s got playmakers on all three levels. Pass rush, linebackers and especially in the secondary. So it’s going to be real fun to be a part of it.”
    (on what he thinks about the opportunity to be a part of this team) “It’s great. Be able to play in my home state. Playing for a team that’s winning and on its way to the playoffs. Like I said, we’ll just have to see what happens, but I’m happy.”
    (on if he has heard from a lot of Houston fans) “Yeah, I heard from some of them, so it’s going to be real fun.
    (on how he fits in with this defense) “I think I fit in real well. They play a lot of man coverage, mix it up a lot. The corners are aggressive and play with a lot of confidence, so I think it’s going to be a good fit for me.”

    Take it with a grain of salt, but here's two first-hand quotes via twitter:

    If James and Joseph can play at 80-90 % I will be very happy.

    I wouldn't be counting on Newton being ready.

    Pretty sure he practiced since Kubiak said only 3 guys sat out. He should be ready to go.

    There's an article from the Boston Globe out there.

    Just google concussion protocol matters.

    Graham needs to be checked out after practices and pass a final test.
    We don't know exactly where he's at, so it's just a waiting game

    "Other than that (3 players not named Graham), everybody was back at practice” doesn't specifically speak to Graham's true concussion status. A concussed player will be tested daily, including through days of practice that can have controlled contact like one-on-one drills (which would come under the label of "limited practice"). In order to return to game play, he will need a 2nd neurologist (if the team has one of its own which would be very atypical), independent of one employed by the team, evaluating him and concurring that he is appropriate to return to regular game play. That will unlikely occur before Sunday.

    The thing is the Pats rely mostly on their TEs and Welker.

    They only have one real outside treat in B. Lloyd.

    I'm a little more concerned about Harris on Welker.

    Maybe if JJo comes back we can put KJ on him at times

    I was surprised to discover that we use 2 TE sets in ~85% of offensive plays.
