Jonas Gray was listed as probable to play against the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday. But the New England Patriots’ leading rusher will instead miss his third game in a row with an ankle injury.
The first-year running back was among the team’s seven inactives for the 4:35 p.m. divisional kickoff at Gillette Stadium. And so was another first-year back in fourth-round pick James White, who is a healthy scratch for the 14th time this season.
Wide receiver Josh Boyce, blocking tight end Steve Maneri, rookie offensive tackle Cameron Fleming, former Ravens guard Jordan Devey and sixth-round defensive end Zach Moore are also inactive for New England.
For Boyce, who was promoted from the practice squad in Week 17, as well as Maneri and Fleming, it marks their first healthy inactives of the season. Devey and Moore, meanwhile, have been gameday scratches a combined 17 times this year.
With those moves, the Patriots have elected to go with swing tackle Marcus Cannon and second-year guard as the two reserves along the offensive line, deactivating Fleming for the first time since Week 15 when he was recovering from an ankle injury.
As for Baltimore, tight end Phillip Supernaw, center Ryan Jensen, ex-Patriots defensive tackle Casey Walker, nose tackle Terrence Cody, defensive end DeAngelo Tyson, linebacker Steven Means and cornerback Chris Greenwood are inactive.
Ravens starting left tackle Eugene Monroe is active after missing the last two games with an ankle injury. He was listed as questionable on Friday.
