The following Patriots players are inactive for Monday's game against the Bills: linebacker Ronnie Perkins, tight end Devin Asiasi, quarterback Jarrett Stidham, offensive lineman Yasir Durant, cornerback Shaun Wade and linebacker Jahlani Tavai.
There were no surprises with every player listed as questionable being active for the game. Perkins was downgraded to out on Sunday due to illness.
Wade is a minor surprise, but Sean Davis was elevated from the practice squad. Tavai had been active for nine of the last 12 games, but with Jamie Collins back from injured reserve a game-day roster spot was needed.
Brian Hoyer continues to be the backup quarterback and Stidham is No. 3.
This is a huge game for the Patriots as with a win they remain atop the AFC standings, but with a loss fall back to No. 5.
