Patriots vs. Seahawks inactives: Aaron Hernandez is back for New England

Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Two Patriots linebacks are among the inactives for Sunday's meeting between New England and the Seahawks, but tight end Aaron Hernandez is back for New England.

New England Patriots linebackers Dont'a Hightower and Tracy White are among the inactives for the Patriots as they take on the Seattle Seahawks Sunday in Seattle. But tight end Aaron Hernandez is back, active for Sunday's game after missing three games for the Patriots.

The two linebackers are among seven inactives the Patriots have declared for the game, a list that also includes safety Steve Gregory and offensive lineman Matt Tennant.

The holes in the Patriots' defense could be a concern headed into a showdown with rookie quarterback Russell Wilson and the Seahawks' offense.

Hightower, who missed the Patriots' last game as well, has been dealing with a hamstring injury. Wide receiver Julian Edelman is also out, the team reported.

The Seahawks inactives include guard John Moffitt and strong safety Winston Guy. The Seahawks' secondary will also be without cornerbacks Jeremy Lane and Danny Gorrer. The Seattle secondary will be tested against the Patriots' offense, led by quarterback Tom Brady and his group of receivers in the late-afternoon showdown.
