Also inactive for the Patriots were two other key players - starting tackle Nick Kaczur and defensive lineman Jarvis Green. Both left last week's 30-10 loss at San Diego with ankle injuries.

For Denver, the other inactive players were wide receiver Brandon Stokley, running back Ryan Torain, defensive end John Engelberger, tackle Erik Pears, tight end Tony Scheffler and defensive tackle Nic Clemons. No quarterback was on the list.
