Foxboro, MA ( - New England Patriots starting center Bryan Stork will not play in Sunday's AFC Championship against Indianapolis due to a knee injury the rookie sustained last week.

Stork, who was forced to exit New England's 35-31 Divisional Round win over Baltimore in the second quarter, was officially declared out on Friday's injury report.

Right guard Ryan Wendell shifted to center following Stork's departure against the Ravens, with Josh Kline taking over Wendell's usual spot.

For the Colts, starting cornerbacks Vontae Davis and Greg Toler were each termed questionable due to knee and shoulder injuries, respectively. However, the Indianapolis Star reported Friday that both are expected to play on Sunday.

Four New England starters, including quarterback Tom Brady, are listed as probable for the conference title game. Brady is dealing with a minor ankle issue but was a full participant in Friday's practice.

Wide receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder/elbow), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) and cornerback Brandon Browner (knee) also are probable for the Patriots.
