Patriots-Rams inactives: Mankins rounds out group for Pats

The Patriots announced on Friday that seven players had been declared out for the game with the Rams, but then the team placed one of those seven, Ras-I Dowling, on injured reserve so that meant the team still had one more player to declare inactive.

That ended up being Logan Mankins, who will miss his third game this season. Mankins has been dealing with hip and calf injuries, and it seems fair to ask – if there was a pretty good chance he wouldn’t be playing – why the team had him sit on that bad hip for flights that total 12-14 hours.


Here is the full list of the Patriots inactives, as well as the Rams. Receiver Danny Amendola (shoulder), who did return to practice this week, will not play for St. Louis.
