FOXBOROUGH -- The Patriots declared rookie receiver Josh Boyce out for Sunday's game at Baltimore, and listed seven others as questionable, including Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins, a pair of fellow rookie receivers.

Boyce didn't practice all week, so his designation is not a surprise.

The other players listed as questionable include left tackle Nate Solder, who missed Wednesday's practice after sustaining a concussion in Sunday's game at Miami; cornerbacks Kyle Arrington (groin) and Alfonzo Dennard (knee/shoulder); and linebackers Dane Fletcher (groin) and Brandon Spikes (knee).

Quarterback Tom Brady led a group of seven players who were listed as probable.

The Ravens didn't rule anybody out, but quarterback Joe Flacco is one of four who are questionable. Flacco was limited in practice this week with a knee injury. Ray Rice (thigh) and Elvis Dumervil (ankle) were also listed as questionable.
