Patriots vs. Jets Inactives: Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola Out; Dobson In

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots have announced their inactives for their week two match-up against the New York Jets.

The New England Patriots have announced their inactives for their week two match-up against the New York Jets:

Danny Amendola, WR

Will Svitek, OT

Brandon Bolden, RB

Chris Jones, DT

Steve Beauharnais, LB

Rob Gronkowski, TE

Zach Sudfeld, TE

Thoughts:

  • As expected, both Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski are out tonight.  Both could eye a week three return, but it leaves the Patriots strapped for playmakers tonight against the Jets.  The team will receive a boost with the return of Aaron Dobson, who was held out week one but will make his NFL debut tonight.
  • Carries will be split between Stevan Ridley and LeGarrette Blount tonight, as Brandon Bolden remains out.  Leon Washington will make his debut however, and he could assist as a return specialist as well.
  • Rookies Zach Sudfeld and Steve Beauharnais are out.  Beauharnais is a healthy scratch while Sudfeld was questionable.  Sudfeld's absence leaves the Patriots with just Michael Hoomanawanui and Matthew Mulligan at tight end (and perhaps James Develin as a blocker), so expect even more 3-WR sets tonight (and the occasional use of Nate Solder as an eligible blocking tight end).
