ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Hello from New Era Field!
Keep it right here or come back throughout the day for updates live from Orchard Park where the Patriots take on the Bills.
Here's the inactives for the Patriots: LB Dont'a Hightower, RB Damien Harris, OL Korey Cunningham, QB Cody Kessler, OL Caleb Benenoch, Dl Byron Cowart, CB JoeJuan Williams.
That means Edelman is officially active, as expected. So is RB Rex Burkhead, who was questionable with a foot injury. With Hightower out, perhaps Jamie Collins wears the green dot as the signal caller and communicator on the field.
James White, Shilique Calhoun, Nate Ebner (groin) and Matt LaCosse (ankle) are all back in the lineup after missing the Jets game.
Hightower looking like an inactive
With Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) on the field doing conditioning work with Damien Harris, Korey Cunningham and others who aren't likely to play, it's a sign he could be inactive.
Edelman does pre-game routine
Julian Edelman went through his usual pre-game routine. As we reported yesterday, he's expected to play. Others with “questionable” standing, TE Matt LaCosse, S Nate Ebner, WR Gunner Olszewski all worked out with strength coach Moses Cabrera. FB James Develin, on IR with a neck injury, made the trip to support his teammates. He was on the field jogging.
