AFC East: Titus Adams

Wilfork out, Fred Taylor in for Patriots

December, 27, 2009
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The big pregame news in Gillette Stadium is the New England Patriots' inactive list for their game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Nose tackle Vince Wilfork has been scratched for the second straight game with a foot injury, and right tackle Nick Kaczur is out again with a shoulder injury.

Fred Taylor is not on the list. The veteran running back will play against his former team after ankle surgery sidelined him for nine games. Patriots defensive end Ty Warren also is back after missing a game.

Conditions here are foggy and soggy. A light mist has fallen all morning, but the temperature is a pleasantly mild 52 degrees.

Be sure to check out the coverage at Mike Reiss and Chris Forsberg will blog their keen observations throughout the day.

The New England Patriots announced Monday they've signed seven players to their practice squad.

The most intriguing name is Isaiah Stanback, who was among the Dallas Cowboys' final cuts. The Cowboys drafted Stanback in the fourth round two years ago. He played a quarterback at the University of Washington, but the Cowboys converted him to receiver and sometimes used him on kickoff returns.

"I tried very hard at receiver," Stanback says in the Dallas Morning News. "I busted my butt at receiver and did whatever was asked of me. I think I could do it, but I was never comfortable with it.

"Quarterback is what I've done my whole life. It's what I'm comfortable with."

The rest of the Patriots' practice squad is:
