Chris Moore, WR, HOU: Foot — Questionable
Impact: Moore is also trending towards being able to start at wideout this weekend.
Damien Harris, RB, NE: Thigh — Questionable
Impact: He didn’t play last week on the same amount of practice, so it’s probably wise to have an alternative.

Impact: Remember that Stevenson didn’t practice all that much last week and still ended up with 172 yards rushing.
DeVante Parker, WR, NE: Concussion — OUT

Tyquan Thornton, WR, NE: Knee — Questionable
Impact: If he plays, there may be a catch or two in his future, but that’s all.
