The New England Patriots and Washington Redskins have listed their inactives for today's game. -

New England Patriots:

S Patrick Chung
T Sebastian Vollmer
LB Brandon Spikes
C Dan Connolly
DE Gerard Warren
RB Shane Vereen
QB Ryan Mallett

Washington Redskins:

WR Terrence Austin
SS LaRon Landry
RB Ryan Torain
LB Markus White
OL Eric Cook
DL Chris Baker
DE Kentwan Balmer


I am shocked Patrick Chung will be missing his fifth straight game with a right ankle injury. He has been practicing as well as laughing and joking around with reporters for several weeks. My guess, the Patriots do not want to rush him back, but Sterling Moore's release yesterday may be a sign he is close to returning.

Linebacker Dane Fletcher is active for the first time since facing the Dallas Cowboys. Cornerback Devin McCourty is also active for a second straight game.

Losing safety Laron Landry is a big loss for the Skins. Washington already had to face the high powered Patriots offense and now they will have to do it with out their best secondary player.

Score Prediction: Patriots - 38, Redskins - 14.
