Jonas Gray will be in uniform as the New England Patriots kick off the AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts.
The running back, who rushed for 201 yards and four touchdowns on 37 carries versus Indianapolis in November, has been inactive since injuring his ankle in Week 16.
Gray, eligible tight end Cameron Fleming as well as defensive tackle Joe Vellano headline New England’s notable actives.
Fleming was a key component in the Patriots’ ground success from six-lineman packages against the Colts in Week 11, but he was a healthy inactive in last week’s divisional round. And Vellano, who played in five games during the early stages of the regular season, is also set to play just one day after being elevated from the practice squad.
Defensive tackle Chris Jones will not play. The second-year pro surfaced on the injury report earlier this week with an elbow issue, before being listed as probable on Friday.
Also inactive for New England is fourth-round halfback James White, wideouts Josh Boyce and Brian Tyms, guard Jordan Devey, starting rookie center Bryan Stork, and sixth-round defensive end Zach Moore.
White has been inactive for 15 games this year, while Boyce has been inactive for the past two games. Devey and Moore were last active for the regular-season finale, while is inactive for the first time this year.
Stork was ruled out with a knee injury on Friday after being a non-participant in the team’s practice preparations for the Colts.
As for the Colts, running back Trent Richardson, receiver Griff Whalen, offensive tackle Xavier Nixon, center Jonotthan Harrison, defensive lineman Zach Kerr, outside linebacker Bjoern Werner and defensive back Sheldon Price have been designated as the seven inactives.
Richardson and Nixon did not make the trip to Foxborough on Saturday, but Indianapolis will have starting cornerbacks Vontae Davis and Greg Toler with them against New England. Both were listed as questionable heading into the playoff game.
