The New England Patriots are getting healthier, but they're not out of the woods yet.

The Patriots listed a whopping 17 players as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Houston Texans in their final injury report Friday, though Tom Brady was removed from the report after appearing earlier in the week

Eight New England players missed practice Wednesday due to illness as a flu bug made its way through the locker room. Jamie Collins, Jermaine Eluemunor, and Stephon Gilmore returned to practice yesterday, while Dont'a Hightower, Isaiah Wynn, and Joejuan Williams were back on the field Friday.

Kyle Van Noy, who did not practice Friday, is a new addition to the injury report because of illness, while Ryan Izzo is the only player who has already been ruled out of Sunday's game due to illness.
