Patriots inactives: Alan Branch, Rex Burkhead among those to miss game vs. Titans

FOXBORO -- The following Patriots players are inactive for Saturday's AFC divisional round game against the Titans: running back Mike Gillislee, offensive tackle Cole Croston, defensive tackle Alan Branch, wide receiver Kenny Britt, running back Rex Burkhead, cornerback Johnson Bademosi and linebacker David Harris.

Gillislee, Branch and Burkhead were all listed as questionable, so Croston, Britt, Bademosi and Harris are healthy scratches.

Bademosi is a strange inactive, as he was active for every game this season. Branch and Burkhead both missed games down the stretch and seemed optimistic to play, but apparently need more time.

Chris Hogan will make his return after playing just one game since the bye week (Miami in Week 14). With his return, Britt is the odd receiver out.

Up front, Malcom Brown, Lawrence Guy and Ricky Jean-Francois will be faced with the task of stopping Derrick Henry.
