Did the injury bug bite the Patriots this week?
Tom Brady, Jason McCourty, Matt Slater and Marcus Cannon all popped up on the injury report following Friday’s practice after not being listed at all earlier this week.
The issue for Brady, according to the report, is a right elbow injury. He, McCourty (groin), Slater (hamstring) and Cannon (illness) are all listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys.
Brady has been on the injury report a few times this season, but is normally taken off the list mid-week.
It’s the first time this year he has been listed as questionable for a game. Last year, it only happened once, in Week 12.

This is the first time all season he is listed as Questionable for the game. Only happened once last year, too (Week 12 vs. Jets).
The other eight players on the list are also listed as questionable: Ja’Whaun Bentley (knee), Patrick Chung (heel/chest), Phillip Dorsett (concussion), Nate Ebner (ankle/back), Julian Edelman (shoulder), Damien Harris (hamstring), Mohamed Sanu (ankle) and John Simon (elbow).
The Patriots face the Cowboys at Gillette Stadium on Sunday at 4:25 p.m.
