Week 17 Patriots vs Dolphins gameday inactives: Miami missing four key starters

New, comment

The following players will not take the field on Sunday.

The New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins have announced their inactives for week 17.

Patriots inactives

CB Cyrus Jones
WR Malcolm Mitchell
WR Danny Amendola
OT LaAdrian Waddle
QB Jacoby Brissett
RB D.J. Foster
S Jordan Richards

None of these inactives are a surprise. Jones, Mitchell, and Amendola are dealing with injuries, while the other four are at the bottom of their respective positional depth charts.

Dolphins inactives

QB Ryan Tannehill
LB Jelani Jenkins
CB Byron Maxwell
TE Thomas Duarte
TE Dominique Jones
WR Leonte Carroo
DE Mario Williams

The Dolphins are resting four key contributors, as Tannehill, Jenkins, Maxwell, and Williams are key players. The Dolphins defense has been wrecked in recent weeks, with DT Ndamukong Suh, LB Kiko Alonso, and DE Cameron Wake as the only consistent pieces.
