Week 13: Thursday participation report – Dennard downgraded

Cornerback Alfonzo Dennard (knee) did not practice Thursday, the Patriots reported, after he was limited on Wednesday. Dennard underwent a procedure on his knee around the team’s bye week, and though he was active for the Broncos game last Sunday night, he played just 21 snaps.

Dennard joined wide receiver Aaron Dobson (foot), right tackle Marcus Cannon (ankle), and tight end Michael Hoomanawanui (knee) on the did not practice list.

That was the only change to the Patriots’ report.

The Texans added quarterback Matt Schaub (not injury-related) to the DNP portion of their report. He joined defensive end Antonio Smith (not injury-related) and safety Jawanza Starling (hamstring). Linebacker Darryl Sharpton (back) and guard Wade Smith (knee), who did not practice on Wednesday, were limited on Thursday.
