Dont'a Hightower, LB
Trey Flowers, DE
Ryan Wendell, C
Aaron Dobson, WR
Khyri Thornton, DL
Geneo Grissom, DE
Rufus Johnson, DE
There aren't any major surprises here for the Patriots. The Patriots had already ruled Dont'a Hightower out of this one. Dion Lewis was listed as questionable with an abdomen injury, but he was expected to play so no surprise to see him active.
Outside of Hightower and technically Trey Flowers, the other players are healthy scratches. Dobson is inactive for the second straight week, and you have to wonder what the return of Brandon Lafell next week might mean for his roster status. Ryan Wendell still has yet to make his 2015 debut.
The Colts also announced their inactives:
#NEvsIND Inactives: 26 Prater 34 Robinson 55 Irving 60 Louis 71 Good 92 Werner 94 Kerr— Indianapolis Colts (@Colts) October 18, 2015
As expected, quarterback Andrew Luck is active and will play. New pick-up Ahmad Bradshaw is active for the game.
