Alfonzo Dennard is out with a knee injury as previously announced, but tonight will officially mark the return of Aqib Talib from his hip injury. This will be big for the Patriots secondary, although the Dennard situation is certainly concerning.
At running back, Leon Washington is also inactive as he didn't make the trip. However, Brandon Bolden is a healthy scratch here after being removed from the injury report Saturday. This likely means that Shane Vereen will be the primary passing back in his return game. Stevan Ridley will likely handle the 1st and 2nd down load, with LeGarrette Blount getting some touches as well.
Receivers Kenbrell Thompkins and Josh Boyce are both active tonight and could both see some snaps after being healthy scratches against the Steelers. The Patriots released Austin Collie last week after he suffered a leg injury, opening up the #4 receiver spot.
