It's hard to figure out the N.E. injury report, but based on what they have submitted, it looks like they are banged-up. Four prominent defensive players, LB Tully Banta-Cain (groin), LB Rob Ninkovich (knee) and DE Jarvis Green (knee) all were held out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday. Also starting guard Stephen Neal (concussion) hasn't practiced this week. DE Ty Warren (ankle) is also iffy.
