Elandon Roberts questionable vs. Steelers in late injury report addition


Turns out the New England Patriots aren't fully healthy for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Patriots added linebacker Elandon Roberts to the injury report Saturday as questionable with a thigh injury.

The news comes as a surprise, as Roberts hasn't been on the injury report for a few weeks. New England had perfect attendance Friday at practice, so it's unclear when or how the veteran linebacker got hurt.

Roberts hasn't missed a game this season and has started 10 of the Patriots' 13 contests, so New England will be hoping he can suit up for a game that's critical for playoff seeding after the Houston Texans defeated the New York Jets on Saturday night to move to 10-4.

If Roberts is limited or can't play, backup Nicholas Grigsby or the recently-signed Ramon Humber could see more snaps Sunday at Heinz Field.
