Patriots vs Chargers: Inactives Reaction

The following players have been ruled inactive for today’s Patriots home opener against the San Diego Chargers: QB Ryan Mallett, LB Gary Guyton, DE Mike Wright, WR Taylor Price, OL Ryan Wendell, OL Dan Koppen, and RB Shane Vereen.

We’ve got analysis after the jump.

With Gary Guyton out, expect Brandon Spikes and AJ Edds to see their first action of the 2011 NFL season. Edds showed some talent in coverage while at Iowa – he could see some time on Gates.

Jermaine Cunningham will also see some time with Mike Wright’s concussion problem.

Dan Connolly should see the start again at center with Dan Koppen out with an injured leg.

Shane Vereen was seen loosening up, but ultimately was left inactive. Stevan Ridley will be the third RB today.

Taylor Price, who flashed during pre-season, still hasn’t been able to find the field.

    Yeah, with Fletcher & Edds or any other, Guyton may be in trouble here.

  2. Patriots Draft Guru says:

    No Guyton, no problem. More time for Edds, Spikes, and Fletcher.
