FOXBORO — The following Patriots players are inactive for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins: defensive end Zach Moore, defensive lineman Dominque Easley, cornerback Alfonzo Dennard, offensive lineman Jordan Devey and Cameron Fleming, running back James White and linebacker Chris White.
Easley (knee) had been ruled out on Friday, and this will be the third game this season he has missed. Dennard (healthy inactive) had been active for two of the last three games, but he will be inactive for his eighth game of the season. Fleming (ankle) hasn’t played since injuring his ankle late in the Colts game.
The big news is both Chandler Jones and Dont’a Hightower are active. Jones will play for the first time since suffering his hip injury in Week 7 against the Jets, while Hightower (shoulder) missed last Sunday’s game in San Diego. It will be worth monitoring how much playing time each of them get.
