Fells headlines Patriots' inactives

By Mike Reiss

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Veteran tight end Daniel Fells is inactive for today's AFC divisional-round playoff game against the Texans, highlighting his slide down the depth chart in recent weeks.

The Patriots have starters Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez healthy, and Michael Hoomanawanui has leapfrogged Fells as the No. 3 option at the position.
