FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is inactive against the New Orleans Saints.
The two-time Pro Bowl player was inactive Sunday for the sixth straight
week and hasn't played after offseason surgery on his left forearm and
Tommy Kelly was inactive for the first time as the Patriots went
without their two starting defensive tackles. Vince Wilfork is on
season-ending injured reserve.
Also inactive for the Patriots were Matthew Slater, Leon Washington,
Josh Boyce, Tavon Wilson and Chris Barker.
For the Saints, safety Roman Harper missed his fourth game with a knee
injury, and wide receiver Lance Moore missed his third with a hand
injury. The other inactive Saints were Zach Strief, Mark Ingram, Tyrunn Walker, Martez Wilson and Rod Sweeting.
