NFL Playoffs Patriots vs Broncos Inactives: Chandler Jones, Jamie Collins Ready to Play

New, comments

The New England Patriots have named their inactives for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos. There are no surprises as the Patriots will field their strongest unit in a long while.

While the team will miss starting RG Tre Jackson, fellow rookie Shaq Mason slid into the RG role and played better against the Chiefs than Jackson has all season. Josh Kline will likely play left guard.

LaAdrian Waddle, Ishmaa'ily Kitchen, Jonathan Bostic, and Chris Harper are all fringe roster players that were never expected to play. Tavon Wilson is a healthy scratch, but is viewed as an important practice player.

Rookie Geneo Grissom could count as a surprise, but the team clearly doesn't believe they'll need him on the edge and this should be viewed as a positive sign for Chandler Jones' health.

Recently promoted linebacker Kevin Snyder will be active.
