Tom Brady officially can win his decades-long dogfight with the New York Jets on Monday.

If the New England Patriots quarterback passes for at least 252 yards against the Jets in their Week 7 matchup, he'll become the all-time leader in passing yards against NY, according to NFL Media's Grant Gordon.

Gordon injured his knee and ankle during last week's victory over the Giants.

Also questionable are receiver Julian Edelman (chest), Phillip Dorsett (hamstring), Gunner Olszewski (hamstring), running back Rex Burkhead (foot), and safety Patrick Chung (heel, chest).

In total, the injury report accounts for a total of 1,253 of New England's 1,789 receiving yards this season.

With Izzo and LaCosse both out of action, the Patriots will have Ben Watson and the newly signed Eric Tomlinson as the only tight ends active for Monday. According to Albert Breer of the MMQB, the Patriots inquired about Buccaneers tight end O.J. Howard, but Tampa Bay told them no.
