FOXBORO (CBS) – Here are the Patriots players inactive for tonight’s game against the Chiefs:
Patrick Chung S
Jeff Tarpanian LB
Dane Fletcher LB
Devin McCourty CB
Kevin Faulk RB
Brandon Spikes LB
Ryan Mallett QB
Chung practiced this week but he is not ready. Sterling Moore and Antwaun Molden will get more playing time in the Patriots defensive backfield.
Faulk was upset this week, now it comes out that he’s not in the game plan. Maybe the Pats will finally use Shane Vereen. The rookie back was out on the field running early. It’s possible he can get some run.
On a side note, the Patriots signed safety Ross Ventrone to the 53-man roster again. Making it transaction number 16 on the season. To make room for Mr. Transaction, New England released offensive lineman Donald Thomas.
