The Patriots have released their full list of inactives for today's game. Included are running backs Thomas Clayton and Fred Taylor, linemen Mark LeVoir and Rich Ohrnberger, receiver Taylor Price, nose tackle Kyle Love, and defensive backs Terrence Wheatley and James Sanders.
No big surprises here, although the absence of James Sanders will put some pressure on Jarrad Page to play an increased role. And despite returning to practice, Terrence Wheatley remains out.
Other notables are Deion Branch, who despite being with the team for less than a week will be on the active roster and will likely play. Rookies Dane Fletcher and Brandon Deaderick, who were both active last week, will be active yet again today. It will be interesting to see if Deaderick will retain a significant role this week.
