Starting center Bryan Stork was upgraded to probable on Saturday afternoon, after being listed as questionable on the Patriots' final injury report of the week on Friday. According to the NFL rules, a probable designation means the player has a 75 percent chance of taking part in the game, whereas a questionable designation implies a 50-50 shot to play.
Stork suffered a knee injury against the Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional round, and missed New England's win over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC title game. The rookie lineman has allowed just one sack in 830 snaps this season.
The Patriots also listed defensive end Akeem Ayers (knee), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder), quarterback Tom Brady (ankle), defensive tackle Chris Jones (elbow) and defensive tackle Sealver Siliga (foot) as probable heading into their showdown with the Seattle Seahawks Sunday.
Brady was a full participant in practice all week, despite suffering through a cold the past few days. By Sunday morning, Brady had completely recovered from the cold, according to Albert Breer of NFL Network.
The other four players in that "probable" group were each limited on the practice field as the Patriots went through their final preparations, but are expected to be ready on game day. Darrelle Revis was also limited at Friday's practice, citing non-injury/rest reasons.
The Patriots now have no players that have been ruled out for the game, and none that are listed as questionable or doubtful.
