Key player pops up on injury report for Patriots originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

On the final injury report of the week, the New England Patriots had a surprise player pop up.

Second-year linebacker Josh Uche, who has record three sacks over New England's first two games, landed on the report with a back injury which made him a limited participant in Friday's practice. Uche is now one of three Patriots listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints at Gillette Stadium, along with Trent Brown (calf) and Adrian Phillips (not injury related).

Brown was also a limited participant for the third day in a row and Phillips missed his second straight day of practice.
