FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Given his importance to the New England Patriots’ offense this year, wide receiver Brandon LaFell was part of a hold-your-breath moment in the regular-season finale against the Bills on Dec. 28.
Playing into the fourth quarter, LaFell came up hobbling after making a 14-yard catch and remained on the sideline for nine snaps before returning for the final four of the contest. LaFell was then held out of the team’s two bye-week practices, and has been limited this week in practice while being classified with a toe injury. more
