New England Patriots: Moss, Edelman, Join Welker as Questionable

After New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker missed last Sunday's game against the New York Jets with a right knee injury, he is expected to be a game-time decision against the Atlanta Falcons tomorrow.

However, Randy Moss missed team practices due to a back injury, and Edelman (who caught eight passes for 98 yards against the Jets in Welker's place) is questionable with an ankle injury.

Also new adds on the injury report: safety Brandon Meriweather, defensive back Shawn Springs, cornerback Terrence Wheatley, tight end Chris Baker among other backups and reserves.

Couple this with the Jerod Mayo injury, and the Patriots could have a tough time against Boston College alum Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons.

Joey Galloway will have to step it up on offense, as he had a terrible game against the Jets. The defense will also have to step up to try to slow down Matty Ryan, Tony Gonzalez, and the rest of the high-powered Atlanta Falcons offense.

My prediction: If the Patriots' offense gets under control without Welker, Edelman or Moss, the Patriots will win. If not, it'll be a long day for the Pats faithful. Final score: Falcons 28, Patriots 17.
