FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -Running backs Selvin Young of the Denver Broncos and LaMont Jordan of the New England Patriots were inactive for Monday night's game.
Young, Denver's leading rusher with 266 yards, missed his second straight game with a groin injury. Jordan, second on the Patriots with 106 yards rushing, also was sidelined for the second straight game with a calf injury.
The absence of Jordan, along with the Patriots decision to place Laurence Maroney on injured reserve with a shoulder injury Monday, left New England with just two of their top four running backs, Sammy Morris and Kevin Faulk.
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.
y Washington, cornerback Terrence Wheatley and linebackers Eric Alexander and Shawn Crable. Matt Gutierrez was the third quarterback.
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.
