Jamie Collins was officially questionable with a back injury, but he was made active for Sunday's AFC Championship Game.
The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe first reported that Collins was "good to go" despite the questionable status, per a source.
Among a boatload of questionable Patriots players, including fellow front seven defenders Chandler Jones and Dont'a Hightower, Collins was in a precarious position after being limited in practice all week.
The linebacker injured his back in the second half of the Patriots' victory over the Kansas City Chiefs last weekend. He played one more down after suffering the injury, then remained on the sideline for the duration of the day. Collins played just 43 of 89 snaps in the Divisional Round.
Collins led the Patriots in tackles with 89 in 2015, despite only playing in 12 contests.
