By Scott Brown
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- There are no surprises among the
' healthy scratches Sunday.
is inactive for the second game in a row since the Steelers promoted him from the practice squad.
Wilson’s status just confirms that when the Steelers released
a couple of weeks ago they did so because they had no use for the veteran running back.
Wilson benefited from Redman’s release but if the Steelers really needed another linebacker on the 53-man roster he would have suited up in each or at least one of the past two games.
Also inactive for the Steelers are right guard
(ankle), wide receiver
, nose tackle
, tight end
Wheaton did some light catching with the other wide receivers a couple of hours before kickoff, and he appears to be moving closer to returning to the field.
Wheaton will miss his fourth game in a row after having surgery to fix a broken right pinkie.
The Patriots will be without top cornerback
(hip) while wide receiver
is inactive after playing just 14 snaps last Sunday.
