The Super Bowl is getting closer, and both the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams are in perfect shape heading into the game. The two teams did not list any players on their final injury reports of the week and today’s lists of inactive players reflect this:

Patriots inactives

CB Duke Dawson

DE Derek Rivers

DE Keionta Davis

DE Ufomba Kamalu

SS Obi Melifonwu

OL James Ferentz

TE Stephen Anderson

None of the players listed as inactive are that big of a surprise. With Deatrich Wise Jr. returning off his injury-related absence in the AFC Championship Game, the Patriots decided to deactivate Derek Rivers once again. Also inactive is special teamer and backup safety Obi Melifonwu, whose spot on the active roster gets taken by defensive tackle Danny Shelton — a run stopper helping against the Rams’ potent ground game.

Basically, the Patriots are at full strength heading into the Super Bowl.


Rams inactives

DB Darious Williams

RB Justin Davis

LB Ogbonnia Okoronkwo

LB Trevon Young

OL Jamil Demby

DT Sebastian Joseph-Day

DT Tanzel Smart

Just like there is on the Patriots’ list, there are no surprises on Los Angeles’.
