Latavius Murray (toe) practiced again on Thursday.
Murray felt good after getting in a limited session on Wednesday. He seems to be over his turf toe and should be back for Sunday's game against Jacksonville. Murray will continue to share work with rookies DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard. Fullback Jamize Olawale is also a threat to steal goal-line carries.
Martellus Bennett (ankle) remained limited at Thursday's practice.
One of Bill Belichick's favorite pastimes is producing novel-length injury reports comprised of mostly healthy players like Bennett. Even if he receives the questionable tag, Bennett will be ready to go Sunday against Pittsburgh. Rob Gronkowski's 162-yard explosion came at Bennett's expense last week, though he's remains a borderline TE1.
Brock Osweiler was added to the injury report with a foot injury, but practiced in full.
It's a non-issue for his Week 7 status. Osweiler will be fine for Monday night's game against Denver.
DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) was limited in Thursday's practice.
Hopkins is expected to play Monday night despite the limited practice. He's a low-end WR2 against Denver's elite secondary.
Julian Edelman (foot) remained limited at Thursday's practice.
The Patriots are simply managing his reps. We're still waiting for Edelman to break out after going his first six games without a touchdown. Perhaps he'll end the drought Sunday against Pittsburgh.
Bears activated LB Pernell McPhee (knee) from the PUP list.
McPhee will make his season debut Thursday against the Packers. He's been a limited participant at practice and may not see a full workload right away. McPhee recorded six sacks last year while earning PFF's fourth-highest grade among 3-4 outside linebackers.
Stefon Diggs (hamstring) remained limited in Thursday's practice.
Diggs missed Week 5, but should return coming off Minnesota's bye. He's a WR3 for Sunday's matchup with the Eagles.
Phillip Dorsett (foot, hamstring) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.
He'll need to get in a limited session Friday in order to play Sunday against Tennessee. The Colts' receiving corps is running on fumes right now with Donte Moncrief (shoulder) still sidelined and T.Y. Hilton battling a nagging hip injury. Dorsett has mostly been a disappointment this year, hauling in just 13-of-26 targets for 253 yards and one touchdown over six contests.
