Week 10 Patriots vs Titans inactives: Rob Gronkowski is OUT, Sony Michel returns

The list of inactive players has been released. Let’s take a look.

NFL: New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

In not even 90 minutes, the New England Patriots will kick off their tenth game of the season. While the team has slowly been getting healthier over the course of the week and did not declare any players out on Friday, it still will have to miss some core players against the Tennessee Titans today.

Patriots inactives

TE Rob Gronkowski

OG Shaq Mason

RB Kenjon Barner

OL Matt Tobin

DE Derek Rivers

SS Obi Melifonwu

CB Keion Crossen

The Patriots’ list of inactives includes two starters in Rob Gronkowski (ankle/back) and Shaq Mason (calf), but no real surprises: all of the players who will be out today are either dealing with injury — and will therefore receive an additional week off ahead of the week 11 bye — or find themselves near the bottom of the depth chart at their respective positions. Or, in the case of Obi Melifonwu, were just recently added to the team.

Of the six players listed as questionable on Friday’s final injury report all but Gronkowski and Mason will be active: offensive tackle Trent Brown, linebacker Dont’a Hightower, tight end Jacob Hollister, and running back Sony Michel will all play today. For Michel, it will mark his first game back since hurting his knee in week seven against the Chicago Bears.
