New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is inactive against the New Orleans Saints.

The two-time Pro Bowl player was inactive Sunday for the sixth straight week and hasn't played after offseason surgery on his left forearm and back.

Tommy Kelly was inactive for the first time as the Patriots went without their two starting defensive tackles. Vince Wilfork is on season-ending injured reserve.

Also inactive for the Patriots were Matthew Slater, Leon Washington, Josh Boyce, Tavon Wilson and Chris Barker.

For the Saints, safety Roman Harper missed his fourth game with a knee injury, and wide receiver Lance Moore missed his third with a hand injury. The other inactive Saints were Zach Strief, Mark Ingram, Tyrunn Walker, Martez Wilson and Rod Sweeting.
