Also inactive for the Pats are running back Sammy Morris, running back Fred Taylor, tackle Matt Light, linebacker Eric Alexander, cornerback Shawn Springs, and offensive lineman Rich Ohrnberger.

Active is receiver Julian Edelman, who’ll be needed now that rookie wideout Brandon Tate is on injured reserve.

  1. Actually, the Pats have been running more of a 4-3 this season (even though most networks and information sources have not recognized this (see NFL.com and ESPN). Also, Jarvis Green isn’t exactly a starter (again, see same sources). Wilfork and Warren are definitely starters; Mike Wright, (rookie) Myron Pryon, Derrick Burgess, Tully Banta-Cain, and Green have shared the rest of the duties. You could say that they’re missing–at most–50% of their starting D-line, though I still think that’s a stretch.
