Super Bowl XLIX Inactives: No Gray, Tyms for Patriots

The New England Patriots have announced their inactives for Super Bowl XLIX:

Zach Moore, DE; Josh Boyce, WR; Jordan Devey, OL; Jonas Gray, RB; James White, RB; Joe Vellano, DL; Brian Tyms, WR

All seven listed names are healthy scratches - a testament to the great health the team will bring with it to Super Bowl XLIX.

The two big names here are Gray and Tyms. With Tyms on the sideline, the Patriots have only three healthy active wide receivers in Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, and Brandon LaFell. With Gray inactive, the Patriots also only have three running backs suiting up: Shane Vereen, LeGarrette Blount, and Brandon Bolden.

The Patriots opted to keep eight healthy active linemen. Bryan Stork was listed as probable heading into today, but keeping eight lineman active gives the team an extra security blanket.

The Seahawks also announced their inactives:

As expected, all three hobbled defensive backs (Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor, Earl Thomas) are active and will start.
