The promise of the Patriots getting Tommy Kelly back for the game Sunday against the Steelers was dashed Friday afternoon.
Kelly has been ruled out for the game against the Steelers in Foxboro. The defensive tackle, who injured his knee Oct. 6 against the Bengals, practiced Wednesday and Thursday but wasn’t on the field Friday.
As for the rest of the banged-up Patriots, Kyle Arrington, Aqib Talib and Leon Washington are all questionable.
Danny Amendola, Marcus Cannon, Brandon Bolden, Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski, Tom Brady and Matthew Slater are probable.
The Steelers, meanwhile, will be without guard David DeCastro, corner Curtis Brown and wide receiver Markus Wheaton.
