The Patriots are getting healthier. By a lot.
The team just released their inactive list, and some interesting names are not on it. Left tackle Matt Light is playing, so is running back Sammy Morris, and so is defensive end Jarvis Green. All had been nursing injuries.
Interestingly, tackle Sebastian Vollmer (head) is out, so is linebacker Junior Seau, and so is CB Shawn Springs.
You read about the Saints’ inactives already.
Here is the complete list of inactives: WR Julian Edelman (3rd QB), RB Fred Taylor, CB Kyle Arrington, CB Shawn Springs, LB Junior Seau, G Rich Orhnberger, T Sebastian Vollmer, and DL Ron Brace.
What that means for Edelman is that if you see him on the field at the Superdome (pictured, from our Matt Stone),before the fourth quarter, the first two QBs are done. So you won’t see a lot of him.
