The New England Patriots are going into their Super Bowl rematch against the Atlanta Falcons short handed.
The Patriots will be without starters cornerback Stephon Gilmore and linebacker Elandon Roberts. Gilmore is still making his way through concussion protocol, which caused him to miss their last game against the New York Jets. Roberts has been dealing with an ankle injury.
The other players inactive for the Patriots are cornerback Eric Rowe, linebacker Harvey Langi, defensive lineman Geno Grissom, and offensive linemen Cole Croston and Cameron Flemming.
The Falcons inactives are wide receivers Nick Williams and Marvin Hall, safety Sharrod Neasman, linebacker Jordan Tripp, guard Sean Harlow, tackle Austin Paztor and defensive Ahtyba Rubin.
