Head coach Arthur Smith confirmed Wednesday that Patterson’s participation will be a game-time decision when the Falcons (4-5) host the Patriots (6-4).
Patterson has been a limited participant in practice this week.
He sustained the injury in Sunday’s 34-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys and finished with 25 rushing yards and one catch for 14 yards. He was limited to a season-low 15 snaps on offense and five on special teams.
Patterson, 30, leads the Falcons in rushing yards (303), receiving touchdowns (five), kickoff return yards (332) and all-purpose yards (1,103).
