FOXBOROUGH -- The following Patriots players are inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets: fullback James Develin, running back James White, tight end Matt LaCosse, offensive lineman Caleb Benenoch, defensive end Shilique Calhoun, safety Nate Ebner and offensive lineman Korey Cunningham.

Listen to your team news NOW.

This means running back Damien Harris will make his NFL debut. He along with Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead could get a lot of work. In addition, Marcus Cannon is active after missing last week with a shoulder injury.

Develin, Calhoun, LaCosse and Ebner were all on the injury report, while White's wife is expected to give birth.

With Cannon active, it means Cunningham is inactive and it is likely Joe Thuney will be the backup swing tackle. Jermaine Eluemunor would then replace him, which they did in Week 1.

Rookie cornerback Joejuan Williams and fullback Jakob Johnson will also make their debuts. Jakobi Meyers is active following the Antonio Brown release.

Benenoch, Cunningham and White (wife giving birth) are the only healthy actives.
