FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Patriots running back Danny Woodhead has been warming up on the field while being watched closely by head strength and conditioning coach Harold Nash, trainer Jim Whalen and team doctor Thomas Gill. This seems to reflect that Woodhead, who is questionable with an ankle injury, is a game-time decision.

Running backs coach Ivan Fears and offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien are also keeping a close eye on Woodhead's workout, which has included change-of-direction work, pass-blocking drills and route-running, among other things.

Meanwhile, fellow running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis is on the field, already dressed in game pants. He is questionable with a toe injury, but signs are pointing to him being active today.

Teams must declare their inactives 90 minutes before kickoff.

[Update -- Woodhead is active today. 3 p.m.]
