Report: Mohamed Sanu, Phillip Dorsett expected to play vs. Texans

By WEEI 93.7

After having just Julian Edelman, N'Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers as wide receivers last week, things should be back to normal for Tom Brady and the Patriots offense Sunday night in Houston.

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, Mohamed Sanu (ankle) and Phillip Dorsett (concussion) are both expected to play. Both players practiced all week in a limited fashion. For Sanu, it appeared he was close to giving it a go last week against Dallas and was a true game-time decision, but ultimately sat out after suffering the injury against the Eagles.

This means Brady will have Edelman, Sanu, Dorsett, Harry and Meyers all active for just the second time all season. The first came against Philly, but Dorsett left early in the second half with a concussion and Sanu played through an ankle injury.

The Patriots offense has a chance to breakout against Houston's defense as it enters the game 20th overall, 25th against the pass, 31st on third down and 32nd in the red zone.
