 GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -Troy Brown, the New England Patriots' career leader in receptions and a key member of their last three championships, was inactive for the Super Bowl against the New York Giants on Sunday.
Brown, the team's longest-tenured player, missed most of his 15th season with a knee injury. He was placed on the physically unable to perform list late in training camp and wasn't activated until Nov. 27. Brown played in one game, in Week 16 against Miami, but had not catches.
Brown was in uniform for the Patriots' first playoff game against Jacksonville, but was inactive for the AFC championship against San Diego.
Also inactive for the Patriots were: wide receiver Chad Jackson, cornerback Antwain Spann, offensive tackle Wesley Britt, guard Billy Yates, tight end Stephen Spach and defensive lineman Santonio Thomas. Matt Gutierrez was the No. 3 quarterback.
New York's Corey Webster, whose interception of Brett Favre in overtime in the NFC championship helped set up the winning field goal, started at right cornerback in place of veteran Sam Madison.
Inactive for the Giants were: wide receiver Sinorice Moss, running back Danny Ware, offensive tackle Adam Koets, defensive back Geoffrey Pope, tight end Jerome Collins and defensive tackles Manny Wright and Russell Davis. Jared Lorenzen was the third-string quarterback.
