Before the New England Patriots play a game, we'll attempt to predict the team's inactive players.
Our best guess on the list for Saturday's playoff game against the Colts:
Jake Bequette: Second-year defensive end is fifth on the depth chart and has been inactive the past nine games.
Michael Buchanan: Rookie defensive end is fourth on the depth chart and contributes on special teams, and while it would be nice to have him active, he is one option to be potentially be the final player declared inactive.
Aaron Dobson: Rookie receiver hasn't practiced since leaving the Dec. 29 season finale against the Bills with a foot injury.
Justin Green: Rookie cornerback from Illinois adds important depth but the Patriots might just have to go with the top four of Aqib Talib, Alfonzo Dennard, Kyle Arrington and Logan Ryan at the position.
D.J. Williams: Tight end has made some solid contributions in limited action, but just gets edged out in a numbers game.
