The New England Patriots and Oakland Raiders released their inactives for Sunday’s game in Mexico City.

The Patriots inactives are:

C David Andrews

DT Malcom Brown

RT Marcus Cannon

RB Mike Gillislee

WR Chris Hogan

CB Eric Rowe

ST Matthew Slater

None of these inactives are much of a surprise. Four were known well ahead of Sunday, while Brown and Rowe were a gameday decision, but haven’t played due to their injuries; they appear to be on pace to return next week against the Miami Dolphins. As has been the case in the past, the Adam Butler and Ricky Jean-Francois will likely see increased snaps at defensive tackle while Johnson Bademosi and Jonathan Jones will play the slot cornerback role.

Andrews, who will miss his first game of the year, will be replaced in the starting lineup by second-year man Ted Karras, Cannon – just like last week – by LaAdrian Waddle. In Chris Hogan's place, Phillip Dorsett should see increased snap yet again.

While the players listed above will miss today's contest, running back Mike Gillislee is absent for the second-straight week as he’s fallen behind Dion Lewis and Rex Burkhead on the depth chart. The free agency acquisition was a healthy scratch last week versus the Denver Broncos.

Tight end Martellus Bennett, also listed on the injury report this week, is active once again.

The Raiders inactives are:

CB David Amerson

EDGE Shilique Calhoun

QB Connor Cook

DT Darius Latham

RT Marshall Newhouse

DL Jihad Ward

OT Jylan Ware

While Amerson is the Raiders’ top cornerback, he’s been playing poorly and was expected to miss the game; Oakland has just three healthy cornerbacks in this game with T.J. Carrie, Dexter McDonald, and Sean Smith. Newhouse is the starting right tackle and should be a big loss for Oakland.

None of the others are major impact players.
