FOXBORO, Mass. — Jonas Gray probably won’t rush for 201 yards and four touchdowns again, but at least he’ll have the opportunity to do so.
The New England Patriots running back is active for Sunday night’s AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts at Gillette Stadium. Gray was inactive for last Sunday’s divisional round matchup vs. the Baltimore Ravens.
Headlining New England’s inactives is center Bryan Stork, who didn’t practice all week after suffering a knee injury against the Ravens. Stork is joined by defensive linemen Chris Jones and Zach Moore, wide receivers Brian Tyms and Josh Boyce, running back James White and tackle Jordan Devey.
Jones’ name is a bit of a surprise, but it helps explain the Patriots’ decision to call up defensive lineman Joe Vellano from the practice squad Saturday.
Trent Richardson, who reportedly missed the team’s trip to New England due to a family medical emergency, is inactive for the Colts along with linebacker Bjoern Werner, wide receiver Griff Whalen, cornerback Sheldon Price, tackle Xavier Nixon, center Jonotthan Harrison and nose tackle Zach Kerr.
