Patriots vs. Eagles Week 11 injury report: John Simon, Darren Sproles added

Patriots vs. Eagles Week 11 injury report: John Simon, Darren Sproles added

The New England Patriots had one addition to their latest Week 11 injury report ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field.

John Simon was added with an elbow injury. He was a limited participant in Thursday's practice at Gillette Stadium. The veteran defensive end has tallied 11 tackles, three sacks, one forced fumble and one interception through nine games this season. Patriots safety Nate Ebner missed another practice Thursday, which doesn't bode well for his Week 11 status.

The most notable development on the Eagles' injury report is running back Darren Sproles not practicing because of a quadricep injury. He was not on Wednesday's injury report. Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery missed another practice Thursday, and if he doesn't play Sunday, Philly's wide receiver depth could be quite weak versus the NFL's top defense.

Here are the Week 11 Thursday injury reports for both teams.

Bill Belichick responds to Bengals' video-taping allegations against Patriots

Bill Belichick responds to Bengals' video-taping allegations against Patriots

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has responded to the Bengals' allegations of a Pats staffer video-taping the Cincinnati sideline during its Week 14 road game versus the Browns.

As NBC Sports Boston's own Tom E. Curran reported, Kraft Sports Productions was in the Cleveland press box producing content for Patriots.com's “Do Your Job” series. Belichick noted that in his Monday appearance on WEEI's "Ordway, Merloni & Fauria" and vehemently denied the team's involvement.

"Yeah, I heard about this and evidently this is the production people on the TV show that were there and I have absolutely nothing to do, we have absolutely nothing to do with anything that they produce or direct or shoot," Belichick said.

"I have never even seen any of their tapes of anything else. This is something that we 100 percent have zero involvement with. This is something that you'd have to talk to the production people about and what they were doing, or whatever it was. We have never seen anything that they've shot, other than what has come down on TV."

The NFL is investigating the situation, according to Bengals head coach Zac Taylor.

The Patriots (10-3) will visit the Bengals (1-12) in a Week 15 matchup on Sunday.

Patrick Mahomes' girlfriend says she was harassed by fans during Patriots-Chiefs

New England Patriots fans apparently weren't all that hospitable to Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes' girlfriend Brittany Matthews and brother Jackson Mahomes on Sunday.

Matthews live-tweeted her experience at Gillette Stadium during the Patriots-Chiefs matchup, and other than the game's outcome it doesn't seem like it was pleasant.

Matthews claims Patriots fans yelled at her and Jackson to sit down and Gillette security even stepped in to move them to a safer location.
