Guyton: 'I'm not a Patriot no more'

Gary Guyton was virtually a non-person at the end of last season in New England, so he's more than happy to be in Miami now.

"Whatever happened in New England just happened, so I just moved on," said the 26-year-old linebacker.

Guyton made his last start for the Pats in Week 12. He made his last tackle for the team on Dec. 4 against the Colts, recording zeroes across the board in all defensive statistical categories in his last six games (including playoffs).

But he appreciated what he learned in New England.

"Really, just how to be professional and how to play the game, so I learned a lot when I was there," he said. "I had a good time there. Bill (Belichick) is a great coach. He did a good job bringing me up. So just being able to learn the game and learn everything I can do from the game of football."

And he wants to take those lessons to his new job.

"At the end of the day, it is going to be what its going to be, so things happen," he said. "Im not a Patriot no more. Now, Im a Dolphin.

Patriots-Steelers injury report: Seven Pats listed as questionable

FOXBORO -- The Patriots will head into Sunday's AFC title game with seven players listed as questionable, including three receivers. 

Danny Amendola, Malcolm Mitchell and Chris Hogan have all been limited in practices this week due to their injuries. Amendola has been dealing with an ankle issue since a Week 13 win over the Rams, while Mitchell has not played since injuring his knee in Week 16 against the Jets. Hogan suffered a thigh injury against the Texans and left the game in the third quarter.

Both Hogan and Mitchell indicated this week that they were moving in the right direction in terms of their recoveries. One would think that the Patriots would need at least one, if not both, to help stress the back end of the Steelers secondary this weekend.

Hogan has been the team's most consistent down-the-field threat this season, averaging a whopping 17.9 yards per catch during the regular season. Against the Texans, before his injury, he reeled in four passes for 95 yards. 

Mitchell, meanwhile, had a very productive second half of his rookie season before he was hurt. He compiled 25 catches for 306 yards between Weeks 11 and 16, establishing himself as one of Tom Brady's go-to targets. 

The overall health of the Patriots receiving corps -- which will also include Julian Edelman and Michael Floyd -- will bear watching when the Patriots and Steelers kick off in two days.
