    Mike Gillislee Among Inactives

    Sunday, January 21, 1:58 PM

    New England Patriots running back Mike Gillislee (knee) is officially inactive for the AFC Championship Game. This was reported earlier in the day, so this is not a shock. Gillislee is probably healthy enough to play, but New England does not need him with Rex Burkhead back in the lineup. The other inactives for the Patriots are DT Alan Branch (knee), OL LaAdrian Waddle (knee), TE Jacob Hollister, WR Kenny Britt, WR Bernard Reedy, and LB David Harris, Branch's absence is a concern with Leonard Fournette coming to town.
