FOXBOROUGH -- Despite practicing for the first time this week after suffering an ankle injury a month ago, Aaron Hernandez is inactive for today's game.

He joins linebacker Dont'a Hightower on the sidelines who suffered a hamstring injury last week against the Buffalo Bills. The Patriots signed Bobby Carpenter for insurance after his injury.

Also inactive for today's game is OL Matt Tennant, TE Michael Hoomanawanui (concussion), and DL Jake Bequette. They join Steve Gregory (hip) and Julian Edelman (hand) who were deemed out for Sunday's game on Friday.
