Brandon Spikes downgraded to ‘questionable’

FOXBORO — Hours before their showdown with Peyton Manning and the Broncos at Gillette Stadium, another defensive starter’s availability is in question.

The Patriots Sunday morning downgraded linebacker Brandon Spikes to “questionable” from “probable” with a knee injury. The designation means his probability of playing has officially gone from 75 percent to 50-50.

Spikes attended Friday’s practice at Gillette Stadium but was the only player not spotted in shells, wearing only sweats and his practice jersey. He also spent the media portion of practice speaking with linebackers coach Pepper Johnson.

Spikes has been nursing a knee injury for most of the season and has dealt with knee injuries in past season, limiting his playing time in his first three seasons in the league. He played in 12 games in 2010 and eight in 2011 before missing just one game in 2012.

Spikes has played in all 10 games this season and leads the Patriots in total tackles with 60.
