Patriots Release Full List Of Inactives For Game Against Texans

The biggest problem New England had was the flu bug that hit the Patriots locker room. Many players missed practice sessions, and some of them won’t play against the Houston Texans. The team has released the full list of inactives for the Week 13 game.

Tight end Ryan Izzo (illness), cornerback Jason McCourty (groin), defensive tackle Byron Cowart (head), guard Jermaine Eluemunor (illness), quarterback Cody Kessler, running back Damien Harris and offensive tackle Korey Cunningham were added to the list of inactives.

Izzo, McCourty and Coward were ruled out Friday and Saturday. Eluemunor missed Wednesday’s session and was a limited participant Thursday and Friday. He could also be inactive even without the illness. We don’t have information if Eluemunor is a healthy scratch or if his status is linked to the illness.

Ben Watson and Matt LaCosse will play tight end Sunday night. Linebacker Elandon Roberts may take snaps at fullback.

Bill Belichick has a solution for his inactives

JC Jackson is replacing McCourty. Stephon Gilmore and Jonathan Jones are filling out the Patriots’ starting cornerback group. Joejuan Williams and Justin Bethel may play on defense. Phillip Dorsett and Mohamed Sanu missed last week’s game, and they are playing tonight.

Dorsett, Sanu, S Patrick Chung (illness/heel/chest), LB Jamie Collins (illness), CB Stephon Gilmore (illness), LB Dont’a Hightower (illness), CB Joejuan Williams (illness), OT Isaiah Wynn (illness), LB Ja’Whaun Bentley (knee), OT Marcus Cannon (illness), S Nate Ebner (ankle/back), WR Julian Edelman (shoulder), WR Matthew Slater (hamstring) and LB Kyle Van Noy (illness) were listed as questionable, but they will play.

Marshall Newhouse is the Patriots’ swing tackle behind Wynn and Cannon. Jarrett Stidham is supporting Brady. The GOAT has been placed on the injury report in the last two weeks due to elbow soreness.

The Patriots’ offense will have Wynn, Sanu and Dorsett. Will this be enough for the Patriots to stop struggling on the offensive end? Brady is happy to see Dorsett back in the fold. Sanu was signed to help the team, and his injury happened at the worst time. But, he is back on the field now, and that may be of great help for New England.
