FOXBORO -- The following Patriots players are inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills: defensive tackle Alan Branch, running back Rex Burkhead, running back James White, wide receiver Chris Hogan, offensive tackle Cole Croston, linebacker Kyle Van Noy and linebacker Trevor Reilly.

Burkhead and Branch were both ruled out Friday, as they didn't practice all week. Hogan came back from his shoulder injury against Miami two weeks ago, but didn't look himself and was inactive against Pittsburgh. White injured his ankle against the Steelers, although he finished the game. Mike Gillislee will likely be a major part of the offense with Burkhead and White down.

For Van Noy, it is his third straight missed game. His last game was against the Bills. Elandon Roberts and David Harris will be active in the middle of the defense. 

Croston and Reilly are healthy inactives. Brandon King returns after missing two straight games.

Nate Solder is active after being added to the injury report with an illness late Saturday night.
