The following are ACTIVE for today’s game: Ravens WR Donte Stallworth, Patriots G Logan Mankins
The following are INACTIVE:
Antonio Gates, TE, Chargers: Opposing defenses can’t bring him down, but apparently a bad case of plantar fasciitis is enough to knock Gates out of the game. If Gates could have played today, he would have been Superman. As it is, he’s still a TE superhero.
Owen Daniels, TE, Texans: He continues to struggle with injuries this season. Daniels played last week, catching one pass for eight yard, but he’s having multiple leg problems. A bad hamstring will keep him out this week.
Ryan Wendell, G, Patriots: The big casualty of the Logan Mankins re-signing is Wendell. He had been starting in Mankins’ place, but now that Mankins is back, Wendell is back to the bench.
Deion Branch, WR, Patriots: Bothered by a hamstring, Branch - who's found new life in New England - won't play today. He hadn't practiced all week, so the news shouldn't be that surprising. Um, just kidding. He's active.
Jake Delhomme/Seneca Wallace, QB, Browns: This means that, once again, Colt McCoy will start at QB for Cleveland.
Shawne Merriman, LB, Bills: Not a surprise, because of how late Merriman reported to his new team once he was claimed off waivers from San Diego. Expect him to be ready for next week's game.
Malcom Floyd/Legedu Naanee, WR, Chargers: And somewhere, Philip Rivers is weeping. At least Antonio Gates is acti ... oh, never mind.
Patrick Chung, CB, Patriots: He's been bothered by a knee injury, and he'll miss his second-straight game. It's unfortunate for New England, because Chung is a tackling machine.
