EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.-- The injury bug has taken an awfully big bite out of the Patriots.
As the team prepares to take on the Jets, New England will be without several key starters. Starting receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola, offensive lineman Josh Kline, and safeties Patrick Chung and Devin McCourty are among the seven inactives listed by the Patriots that will not play Sunday.
As for the Jets, the team is relatively healthy. Not including players listed on the injured reserve, not one starter will miss the game due to an injury as both linebacker David Harris and h-back Quincy Enunwa are active. In fact, the only player of note not dressing for the Jets in cornerback Dee Milliner, who missed the majority of practice this week with a hamstring injury.
In his three-year career which began with his selection in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft, Milliner has played in just 21 of a potential 46 games.
