New England Patriots RB J.J. Taylor

The 1-3 New England Patriots take on the 1-3 Houston Texans this afternoon. Here are your inactives:

New England Patriots Inactives:

CB Jalen Mills

TE Devin Asiasi

G Shaq Mason

CB Shaun Wade

DE Ronnie Perkins

RB J.J. Taylor

  • The Patriots will sit J.J. Taylor after his costly fumble last Sunday vs. the Buccaneers that may or may have cost them the game. Rhamondre Stevenson will take his place, getting his first appearance since his fumble in Week 1 which has put him on the bench since then. Jamie Collins will start his third career stint with New England after being signed by the team. Devin Asiasi and Taylor are the only healthy inactives.

Houston Texans Inactives:

QB Deshaun Watson

TE Jordan Brevin

CB Jimmy Moreland

RB Scottie Phillips

RB Rex Burkhead

WR Danny Amendola

DE Charles Omenihu

  • Rex Burkhead and Danny Amendola will both miss out on their return to Foxboro, while Marcus Cannon — who did not re-sign with the Pats along with Burkhead — will play for the Texans after he was questionable. Deshaun Watson continues to be under fire for some serious sexual assault allegations.
