The Patriots have issued their final injury report before Sunday night's season-opener against the Steelers, and it's not very long.

Listen to your team news NOW.

New England has no one listed as out or doubtful, but wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (hamstring), tight end Matt LaCosse (ankle) and safety Obi Melifonwu (ankle) are all listed as questionable. All three players were limited participants in practice all week.

Thomas is certainly the biggest name to keep an eye on, but LaCosse could be the most intriguing given that Ryan Izzo is the only other tight end currently on the roster with Lance Kendricks (one game) and Benjaming Watson (four games) both suspended.

On the Pittsburgh side, starting free safety Sean Davis is listed as doubtful after missing practice all week with an ankle injury. Kam Kelly is expected to make his first career start in place of Davis, so don't be surprised to see Tom Brady and the Patriots try to target him.
