The Patriots final Friday practice participation and injury report remained unchanged from earlier in the week as the team prepared to travel to Miami to take on the Dolphins.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Right tackle Marcus Cannon (shoulder), tight end Matt LaCosse (ankle) and running back Brandon Bolden (hamstring) were all once again limited in practice on Friday.

All three players were officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins.

Cannon is the most notable name on the list after leaving the season opener against the Steelers with the injury. If he’s unable to play against Miami – there were some reports that he could miss multiple weeks and the team actually signed veteran Marshall Newhouse to add depth this week – it brings uncertainty to another spot on the line early in the season. New England already has a first-year starter at left tackle in Isaiah Wynn, who missed his rookie season to a torn Achilles, while Ted Karras is forced to fill-in at center for David Andrews, who is on IR for the season due to reported blood clots in his lungs.

If Cannon cannot play against Miami it could leave either Korey Cunningham, a late-camp trade addition, or Newhouse to start at right tackle. Another option would be to move left gaurd Joe Thuney to the spot, as team did late in the game against the Steelers, although given a week to prepare that scenario seems less likely.

The Dolphins list six players on their final injury report of the week.

Safety Reshad Jones (ankle) and wide receiver Albert Wilson (calf) are both listed as out after missing practice all week. Linebacker Trent Harris (foot), defensive end Charles Harris (wrist), center Daniel Kilgore (shoulder) and safety Bobby McCain (shoulder) are all listed as questionable for Sunday’s game.
