New England Patriots sideline Morris and Watson for Miami visit The New England Patriots sidelined the running back Sammy Morris and tight end Benjamin Watson for the Sunday match-up against the Miami Dolphins. Both players were reported as doubtful earlier. Morris became the Pats leading rusher with 384 yards after replacing injured Laurence Maroney last month. But Morris suffered a chest injury last week and Maroney is now questionable against the Dolphins. Benjamin Watson with five touchdowns this season also suffered injury against the Cowboys and will miss Week 7 football.

 For the Patriots Eric Alexander, Mel Mitchell and Mike Wright were also ruled out for the game. The Dolphins will play without Trent Green, who is out for the season, as well as DT Vonnie Holliday DT and S Travares Tillman. Dolphins TE David Martin and LB Zach Thomas remain questionable. At Bookmaker the Pats are still favorite with odds -1700, the odds on the Dolphins have slightly improved over the week from +1250 to +1100 and the spread is now favoring the Patriots -16 points, half a point down since Wednesday. The NFL Week 7 game between the Patriots and the Dolphins remains the most bet on event this weekend, New England as the favorite pick.
