Malcolm Mitchell won't be part of the Patriots' game plan against the Titans after all.

The receiver wasn't activated to the 53-man roster on Friday, so therefore he cannot play in the AFC divisional round Saturday night against the Titans. The Patriots' last day to activate him is next Wednesday. If they don't, he reverts back to injured reserve.

The Patriots do appear to be getting receiver Chris Hogan back for the game, which should help Tom Brady and the offense.

New England receiver depth chart has Brandin Cooks, Hogan, Danny Amendola, Phillip Dorsett and Kenny Britt.
