Here is the final injury report for Week 17 and what it means for the AFC East:
OUT: CB Aaron Berry (hamstring)
PROBABLE: TE Jeff Cumberland (wrist), DT Kenrick Ellis (knee), K Nick Folk (back), S LaRon Landry (hamstring, heel), P Robert Malone (illness), C Nick Mangold (shoulder), LB Garrett McIntyre (elbow), RB Joe McKnight (ankle, illness), G Brandon Moore (foot, hip), LB Calvin Pace (shoulder), DT Sione Pouha (back), RB Bilal Powell (shoulder), QB Mark Sanchez (back), LB Ricky Sapp (ankle), LB Bart Scott (toe), G Matt Slauson (knee), QB Tim Tebow (ribs), DE Muhammad Wilkerson (concussion, knee)
PROBABLE: LB Nick Barnett (knee), S Jairus Byrd (ankle), RB Dorin Dickerson (ankle), WR Marcus Easley (hamstring), G Andy Levitre (knee), CB Justin Rogers (foot), RB C.J. Spiller (shoulder), LB Chris White (hamstring), DT Kyle Williams (ankle), DE Mario Williams (wrist), C Eric Wood (knee)
Analysis: Both teams have a lot of minor injuries, but that’s typical this time of year. The biggest loss for the Jets is Keller. He is New York quarterback Mark Sanchez’s most reliable target, and the offense has been in shambles without Keller. What’s even more interesting is Keller will be an unrestricted free agent after the season, and you wonder if he’s played his last game in a Jets uniform. For the Bills, Anderson tried to get back and help Buffalo’s defense late in the year but couldn’t. Chandler was already put on injured reserve this week.
OUT: WR Davone Bess (back)
DOUBTFUL: CB Marquice Cole (finger)
QUESTIONABLE: S Patrick Chung (shoulder), G Dan Connolly (back), CB Alfonzo Dennard (hamstring), DB Nate Ebner (hamstring), TE Rob Gronkowski (forearm), TE Aaron Hernandez (ankle), LB Dont’a Hightower (hamstring, shoulder), DE Chandler Jones (ankle), WR Brandon Lloyd (knee), DT Kyle Love (knee), G Logan Mankins (ankle, calf), LB Jerod Mayo (elbow), OL Nick McDonald (shoulder), LB Mike Rivera (ankle), OT Nate Solder (abdomen), LB Brandon Spikes (knee, ankle), CB Aqib Talib (hip), OT Sebastian Vollmer (back, knee), WR Wes Welker (ankle), LB Tracy White (elbow)
Analysis: No one manipulates the injury report like coach Bill Belichick and the Patriots. New England has a whopping 20 players listed questionable for Sunday's game. The Patriots may opt to rest key players for the playoffs. They could be determined by how much New England needs this game. The Patriots could be playing for a first-round bye if the Houston Texans lose their 1 p.m. ET game against the Indianapolis Colts. The Dolphins will be without Bess again this week. Carroll also missed last week’s game, but the Dolphins need him back for depth.
