FOXBORO -- The Patriots took their lumps against the Texans in their Divisional Round win last weekend.
After going into the game with just two players listed on the injury report -- one of which was Danny Amendola, who ended last week as a full participant in practice -- that list has grown significantly.
Amendola (ankle), Martellus Bennett (knee), Brandon Bolden (knee), Dont'a Hightower (shoulder), Chris Hogan (thigh), Malcolm Mitchell (knee) and Jabaal Sheard (knee) all showed up as limited participants in Wednesday's practice on the team's most recent injury report.
Both Mitchell and Hogan have said over the course of the last two days that they are moving in the right direction. Mitchell was held out of the Divisional Round, and Hogan was hurt during the Texans matchup. Amendola, meanwhile, suffered an ankle injury in Week 13 and Saturday's was his first game since then.
Bennett, Bolden, Hightower, Sheard and Hogan were all new additions to the injury report. Bennett has dealt with ankle and shoulder issues for much of the season, and he tweaked his knee in the fourth quarter, remaining on the ground for an extended period of time before jogging to the sideline and eventually returning to the game.
