The New England Patriots have announced their inactives for their week three match-up against the Oakland Raiders:

Alfonzo Dennard, CB; Zach Moore, DE; DE; Don Jones, S; Aaron Dobson, WR; Josh Kline, OL; Ryan Wendell, OL; James White, RB

Thoughts:

As expected, Shane Vereen is good to go despite being questionable with a shoulder injury. Vereen and Ridley will once again carry the load of the rushing offense.

Aaron Dobson is once again a healthy scratch. The Patriots are trying different combinations of receivers - last week Kenbrell Thompkins was the inactive.

Jamie Collins also makes his return, meaning the Patriots have their full linebacker corps.

The Raiders have also announced their inactives:

Matt Schaub, QB; Nick Roach, LB; Sio Moore, LB; Tony Bergstrom, G; Maurice Jones-Drew, RB; Chimdi Chekwa, CB; Matt McCants, T

As expected, the Raiders will be without two of their three starting linebackers with Nick Roach (questionable) also being declared out.
