The Chiefs need only five inactives following the release of running back C.J. Spiller and offensive lineman Jordan Devey earlier today. The team carries an active roster of 51 players into the game and only 46 may be active.

Left guard Parker Ehinger and line backer Reggie Ragland are inactive. Both players continue recovering from ACL injuries sustained last season.

Other inactives include cornerback D.J. White, defensive lineman Jarvis Jenkins and third-string quarterback Tyler Bray.

The Patriots will be without special teams star Matt Slater. He was questionable entering the game with a hamstring injury.
