The New England Patriots are just about as healthy as you could ask for heading into a playoff game, which means that all of the team's inactives are healthy scratches. The full list of Patriots inactives for their divisional playoff match-up against the Falcons:
As expected, key injured Patriots Alfonzo Dennard and Rob Gronkowski are active. The only mild surprise on this list is the inclusion of tight end Daniel Fells. Fells had been active in recent weeks, but with him falling behind Michael Hoomanawanui on the depth chart, the Patriots opted to keep depth elsewhere with several other key players coming back.
The Texans inactives:
No major surprises here for the Texans either. They also came into this week with a nearly perfect bill of health.
