The Patriots have ruled CB Alfonzo Dennard (knee) and S Steve Gregory (finger) out for Monday’s game against the Carolina Panthers.
Gregory suffered a broken thumb against the Steelers and has not practiced since, so it was not expected that he would play. However, Dennard was listed as limited on Thursday and Friday before not practicing at all on Saturday, and now will not play.
It is unclear at this time how serious Dennard’s injury is.
The Patriots list CBs Aqib Talib (hip) and Kyle Arrington (groin) as questionable, and while signs point to Talib’s return, they are potentially very thin at the position.
Carolina lists LB Chase Blackburn (foot), TE Ben Hartsock (knee) and G Chris Scott (knee) as out. CB Drayton Florence (groin) was added to the report on Saturday and is questionable after not practicing.
