Martellus Bennett has played through a lot this season, not missing a single game, and now we know what he’s been dealing with.
According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Bennett has played this season with a cracked bone and bone chips in his ankle. The report also adds he will likely need surgery after the season.
Bennett was on the injury report every week with an ankle injury since Week 5, but came off last week prior to the divisional round. He was back on it this week with a knee injury suffered against the Texans.
Tom Brady noted his toughness and ability to play through pain earlier in the season.
“He’s been great,” Brady said in late November. “He’s been so productive for us and I really enjoy playing with him. You talk about a guy that’s been out at practice every day. I mean, he’s fought through a lot of stuff...
The Patriots will have a gameday roster decision to make in advance of Sunday’s AFC championship game.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, rookie receiver Malcolm Mitchell will play against the Steelers after missing the last two games with a knee injury. The report also adds Chris Hogan (thigh) is good to go as well.
With Mitchell out against the Texans last weekend, the Patriots went with Hogan, Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Michael Floyd. This could be altered a bit Sunday with Mitchell appearing to be ready to go.
It seems unlikely the team will have five receivers active against the Steelers because of other needs on the roster. Edelman and Hogan are locks to play. Mitchell is playing, according to Schefter, so this leaves the Patriots seemingly deciding between Amendola and Floyd for the last wide receiver roster spot.
Tragedy struck the baseball world early Sunday morning.

Not a good look for Patriots fans.
According to multiple reports, a fire alarm was pulled around 3 a.m. early Sunday morning at the Steelers’ team hotel.
The hotel was evacuated while the fire department checked the building, but while many Steelers players were awakened by the alarm, the team was not officially evacuated.
On Sunday morning, the Mass State Police released a statement saying it arrested a 25-year-old Dennis Harrison from East Boston for pulling the alarm at the Logan Airport Hilton hotel.
He was charged with disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace and pulling a false fire alarm.
ESPN reports he pulled an alarm in a stairwell near an exit at the hotel and jumped into a waiting car with two other men and...
Still dreaming of David Ortiz rejoining the Red Sox? Perhaps this will make you feel better — Pedro Martinez believes it’s going to happen.
Speaking on the Trenni & Tomase program on Saturday from Foxwoods, where the Red Sox were holding their Winter Weekend, Martinez made it clear that he’s 100 percent skeptical of Ortiz’s decision to retire, and believes it’s only a matter of time before he laces up his cleats again.
“David says he’s retired,” Martinez said. “But I still believe David is going to give it another try. I don’t know why I have that feeling that David might want to do that. I just don’t see David, having the type of season that he had, and having the success that he was still having, sitting at home wasting it. David is too smart. I still believe David is going to feel the little...
