The New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts have listed their inactives for today’s game. -

New England Patriots:

S Patrick Chung
T Sebastian Vollmer
LB Brandon Spikes
C Dan Connolly
LB Dane Fletcher
RB Shane Vereen
QB Ryan Mallett

Indianapolis Colts:

QB Peyton Manning
TE Dallas Clark
TE Brody Eldridge
FB Ryan Mahaffey
DT Drake Nevis
DE Jerry Hughes
CB Kevin Thomas

Devin McCourty is active for the first time since  Nov. 13 against the New York Jets. His grade two right shoulder separation has had him inactive for games and limited on the practice field.

I am surprised Patrick Chung will be missing his fourth straight game with a right ankle injury. He has been practicing as well as laughing and joking around with reporters this week. My guess, the Patriots do not want to rush him back.
