Patriots S Devin McCourty suffered what the team fears to be a high ankle sprain in Sunday night's win at Houston, according to the Boston Globe. Such an injury would likely keep McCourty out for at least Week 15 against the Titans and might threaten the rest of his regular season. McCourty's a much better real-life player than IDP asset, so you can comfortably drop him for a replacement if you own him in fantasy. We'll keep an eye on who's in line to start at the back of the Pats' secondary this week.

Patriots S Devin McCourty (shoulder) is active. He entered the day questionable but is OK to use as you normally would in IDP lineups.

Patriots S Devin McCourty is active for Sunday's game against the Saints after entering the day questionable with a groin issue. He's fine to use in IDP lineups against a pass-heavy Saints offense.

Fox Sports' Mike Garafolo reports that Patriots S Devin McCourty is expected to re-sign with New England. The news is a bit surprising considering how close we are to free agency and McCourty's perch near the top of the free-agent list across positions. He hasn't been much of an IDP factor through most of his 5 seasons to date, so don't expect a drastic change on that front. McCourty's continued presence would certainly help a Patriots team D with a solid front 7.

UPDATE: McCourty also tweeted, "I'm back," Sunday night.

Patriots LCB Devin McCourty returned to limited practice Saturday but is doubtful for the Monday night game because of a separated shoulder. Assuming he doesn't suit up, he'll become the latest injured Patriot to return for the week's final practice before being inactive. Antwaun Molden and Philip Adams appear to be next in line to fill in against the Chiefs.

Patriots LCB Devin McCourty left the Sunday night game after a hit from his own teammate separated his right shoulder. There's no word yet on how long he might be out, though IDP owners should probably plan to miss him for at least Week 11. New England might be forced to plug Antwaun Molden back into the lineup after he fell short in his previous stint as fill-in starter. The team is already without rookie Ras-I Dowling (hip, IR) and waived veteran Leigh Bodden.
