The Patriots have just announced their eight inactive players for today’s game:
WR Julian Edelman
WR Taylor Price
CB Terrence Wheatley
RB Laurence Maroney
LB Dane Fletcher
OT Steve Maneri
DL Brandon Deaderick
OT Nick Kaczur
Edelman, listed as questionable on Friday, had been warming up on the field earlier with members of the training staff, but clearly wasn’t given the thumbs up. That’s a tough one for the Patriots.
And though Maroney was also listed as questionable, it isn’t a good start to the season for the running back, who was benched for New England’s regular season finale and was effectively benched early in the Pats’ playoff game with Baltimore.
Kaczur (back) and Wheatley (sprained foot) had already been declared out on Friday.
