LaAdrian Waddle Headshot

Waddle (ankle) is officially active for Monday night's game against the Dolphins.

Waddle was listed as questionable after being a limited practice participant this week. The 26-year-old is likely to slot back in at right tackle for the Patriots with Marcus Cannon (ankle) still unavailable.
7:37 pm (EST)
Stephon Gilmore Headshot

Gilmore (ankle) is officially active for Monday's game against the Dolphins.

Gilmore was a limited participant in practice this week and was listed as questionable, and always seemed likely to play. The Patriots' secondary may have their work cut out for them Monday with Trey Flowers (ribs) and Kyle Van Noy (calf) -- the team's two leaders in sacks -- inactive Monday.
7:31 pm (EST)
Ahkello Witherspoon Headshot

Witherspoon suffered an MCL sprain in Sunday's 26-16 victory over the Texans, but he may avoid an time off, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Witherspoon's MRI was "encouragince," according to coach Kyle Shanahan, who also avoided ruling him out for Sunday's game against the Titans. K'Waun Williams would presumably fill in at cornerback should Witherspoon ultimately have to sit out.
7:21 pm (EST)
Trey Flowers Headshot

Flowers (ribs) is officially inactive for Monday night's game against the Dolphins.

Flowers was a limited participant in practice all week and was listed as questionable, but will miss his second consecutive game. The 24-year-old leads the Patriots with six sacks on the season, and the team will have to look beyond the usual suspects for production with leading tackler Kyle Van Noy (calf) also inactive Monday.
7:21 pm (EST)
Quandre Diggs Headshot

Diggs recorded seven tackles, one interception and one forced fumbled during Sunday's 24-21 victory over Tampa Bay.

Making his second consecutive start at strong safety, Diggs -- who's transitioning from nickel corner -- was visibly more comfortable than he was last week. It wasn't a perfect outing, as Diggs was seemingly responsible for allowing a handful of Tampa Bay first downs through the air, but the Lions have to be encouraged by his progress thus far. Next up is a matchup with a Bears team that's averaged the 10th most rushing attempts per game in 2017, which should require Diggs to be particularly active as a tackler.
7:19 pm (EST)
Bobby Wagner Headshot

Head coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Wagner's (hamstring) availability for Sunday's contest against the Rams won't be known "until this weekend," Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Wagner's hamstring has bothered him since the calendar turned to November, typically resulting in no practice until Friday, at the earliest. Considering Carroll's comment, Wagner may focus on his recovery all week in order to get the all-clear for Sunday's game. With fellow linebacker K.J. Wright beholden to the concussion protocol, the Seahawks may have to rely upon Michael Wilhoite, Terence Garvin and D.J. Alexander at the position in the short term.
7:18 pm (EST)
Davon Godchaux Headshot

The Dolphins have listed Godchaux (knee) as active for Monday's tilt against the Patriots.

Although he logged a full practice Saturday, Godchaux earned a questionable designation heading into Monday's game. The 23-year-old figures to resume his role as a reserve defensive tackle assuming he avoids any setbacks throughout the contest.
7:18 pm (EST)
Marquis Flowers Headshot

Flowers (knee) is officially active for Monday night's game against the Dolphins.

Flower was listed as questionable after being limited in practice throughout the week, but it seemed as though he was on track to play. The 25-year-old should see a heavy workload against the Dolphins on Monday with linebacker Kyle Van Noy (calf) inactive.
7:15 pm (EST)
Mike Gillislee Headshot

Gillislee (illness) is inactive for Monday night's game against the Dolphins.

With Gillislee inactive for the fifth straight game, Dion Lewis, Rex Burkhead and James White will head the Patriots' Week 14 backfield. Future game plans may lead to Gillislee's power running skills being needed down the stretch, but he's the odd man out for now.
7:15 pm (EST)
Cordrea Tankersley Headshot

Tankersley (ankle) is listed as inactive for Monday's game against the Patriots.

Tankersley was unable to practice throughout the week, ultimately earning a doubtful designation, so it is not surprising to see him unable to suit up Monday. The absence will mark his first since Week 3. While he is sidelined, Bobby McCain and Alterraun Verner figure to pick of the slack at cornerback.
