Listen to your team news NOW.

This means Julian Edelman is active after being a true game-time decision with knee and shoulder injuries. Starting center Ted Karras will return after missing last week due to a knee injury suffered in the loss to the Texans.

Cowart (concussion) was the only player to be ruled out ahead of Sunday, as he did not make the trip. Cunningham, Kessler, Harris, Eluemunor and Izzo are healthy inactives. McCourty (groin) returned last week, but played less than five snaps. Joejuan Williams is active in his place.

For the third straight week, the Patriots will have a full complement of weapons on offense.
