Chad Ochocinco Among Patriots' Inactives

The New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens have released their inactives list, and among the Patriots’ inactives are Chad Ochocinco and rookie RB Stevan Ridley. Ochocinco traveled to Florida Friday to attend his father’s funeral but returned to Gillette Stadium in time to suit up, but the team decided to make him inactive. Ochocinco played only one snap last week against Denver, so it’s not really a huge blow to what the Pats wanted to do on offense. Ridley’s listing could be a result of fumbling in two straight games. Against the Ravens hard-hitting defense, ball security takes on even more importance. Another inactive that catches the eye is right tackle Sebastian Vollmer, who will miss his seventh-straight game. That means rookie Nate Solder will suit up and start at right tackle, which will be an area to watch against the Ravens’ pass rush.

Here’s the complete list of Patriots and Ravens inactives:
