Patriots Inactives: New England Make Change At Running Back In Week 5

There are a few Patriots players that are now on the inactives list. It looks like they will be making a change at running back going into week 5 of the season. The Patriots are now 1-3 going into week 5 of the NFL season. It has been a disappointing start to a season that many people were very excited about.

G Shaq Mason
CB Shaun Wade
OLB Ronnie Perkins
RB J.J. Taylor
TE Devin Asiasi

OT Trent Brown (injured reserve)

Patriots Inactives: New England Make Change At Running Back In Week 5

The Patriots are also not going to be playing starting cornerback Jalen Mills due to a hamstring injury and back up corner Shaun Wade (concussion). They also are going with a different running back, benching J.J. Taylor (healthy scratch) and putting back rookie Rhamondre Stevenson.

There are also some inactives for the Houston Texans.

This is shaping up to be a pretty good game. It will be interesting to see how it goes for a team that is coming off a tough loss against the Buccaneers. Tom Brady had some thoughts on playing his former team.

“So, for 20 years I saw him basically every day. And since I left New England, I just, we’d never seen each other kind of face to face. And it was nice to catch up and exchange just some different thoughts that we had been having. And it was a good way to end the night for both of us.”

“When I left here, we just didn’t have a chance—he was out of town—to meet,” Brady told King. “When I went down to Tampa it was Covid. I was thinking about my season and so was he. It was just, we’ve known each other for a long time, and we didn’t have a chance to talk, and (Sunday night) we did, and it was great.”
