FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – The New England Patriots on Sunday announced that running back Kevin Faulk was upgraded to probable for Monday night’s game at Minnesota.

Four other players were downgraded to out.

Faulk had been listed as questionable with an ankle injury, which meant he had about a 50-50 chance of playing.

Tight end Daniel Graham (ankle), guards Russ Hochstein (knee) and Stephen Neal (shoulder), and safety Eugene Wilson (hamstring) were downgraded from questionable to out.
