Patriots injuries: Tom Brady misses practice, Rob Gronkowski limited

Jim Rogash

Eighteen Patriots were listed on the injury report for Wednesday's practice ahead of their match-up with Jacksonville.

When the New England Patriots take the field against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, they must win if they want to keep their hopes of a first round bye in the playoffs alive. As usual, the Patriots injury report was lengthy, including their offensive leader, Tom Brady, sitting out of practice with an injury in his throwing shoulder. Linebacker Mike Rivera also sat out with an ankle injury.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski was limited in practice as he recovers from a broken arm. It's not known whether he'll be healthy enough to play against the Jaguars. Tight end Aaron Hernandez was also limited with an ankle injury while wide receiver Wes Welker took it easy with an ankle injury as well.

Defensively, cornerback Aqib Talib was limited with a hip injury. Linebacker Brandon Spikes was dealing with a knee and ankle injury and was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Here's the complete Patriots injury report with all 18 players listed from the Patriots website.
