Gronk, Edelman active for Patriots


The Patriots are the healthiest they’ve been in weeks, and that includes wide receiver Julian Edelman and tight end Rob Gronkowski being active.

Both teams turned in their active rosters 90 minutes prior to Saturday’s game. Edelman and Gronkowski are among 12 players the Patriots had listed as questionable.

Chiefs wide receiver Jeremy Maclin is active, meaning both teams have their top pass catchers at least in uniform.

Inactive for the Patriots are tackle LaAdrian Waddle, linebacker Jon Bostic, wide receiver Chris Harper, safety Tavon Wilson, defensive end Geneo Grissom, defensive tackle Ishmaa’ily Kitchen and starting guard Tre’ Jackson, the only player the Patriots had listed as out.

Waddle is the only player listed as questionable who was made inactive.
