By Tim BrittonFOXBORO, Mass. -- Linebacker Gary Guyton didn't see the field on Sunday night, but that wasn't because of an injury.
Guyton, who was limited in practice all last week and questionable for the game with a shoulder injury, was active. But he didn't play, with Jeff Tarpinian and Tracy White getting time at outside linebacker instead.
Belichick didn't say why Guyton was kept on the sideline.
"Players that were active for the game were active for the game," head coach Bill Belichick said Monday. "Everybody that was active for the game was able to play. He missed some time this week in practice, and that was a concern going into the game, but he was active for the game."

New England coach Bill Belichick says he doesn't remember using a vulgar phrase he reportedly uttered coming off the field after the Patriots win over the New York Jets.
Belichick said at his regular Monday news conference that ''I don't remember it that way. I don't think we're here to talk about that. If you want to talk about the game, great.''...
Usually the colorful quotes in the Jets-Patriots rivalry are supplied by Rex Ryan, but the roles were reversed after Sunday night's blowout win by New England.
As the normally-reserved Patriots coach Bill Belichick walked off the MetLife Stadium field, he threw his arm around his son, Stephen, and added an exclamation mark to the 37-16 victory.
"Thirty-seven points on...
I can be honest, going into the Patriots/Jets contest Sunday night I did not have much confidence in my hometown team. Sure, Tom Brady was still under center, but with the offense sputtering the last two weeks and a defense that, while not giving up a lot of points, was more porous than a collander, things were not looking great. Bill Belichick underwent a difficult week with his...
You guys won’t believe this… but I’m almost positive Patriots coach Bill Belichick and Jets coach Rex Ryan both used swear words while walking through MetLife Stadium last night within earshot of someone.
For Belichick, it was his comments allegedly made on the field after thumping the Jets in a talk with his son. Somehow, the New York Post heard it and reported that he said...
Bill Belichick and Tom Brady have won quite a lot of games for the New England Patriots together, a NFL Super Bowl era-record 117, in fact. And needless to say, many of those victories have been pretty impressive in magnitude. That will happen when you win three Super Bowls in four appearances.
Yet that’s why it’s so unlikely—and perhaps fitting—that the latest Belichick...
Head coach Bill Belichick said Tuesday the Patriots will add rookie offensive lineman Marcus Cannon to the active roster by the 4 p.m. deadline. Cannon was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma prior to the NFL draft in the spring. Once considered a second-round prospect, Cannon fell to the Patriots in the fifth round. He started the season on the non-football injury list, which...
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick addresses the media during his press conference at Gillette Stadium on Monday, November 14, 2011.
Bill Belichick may not be the most engaging or forthcoming guy, but those who cover the New England Patriots on a regular basis know exactly what they're going to get from the famously taciturn head coach every week.
By Tim BrittonFOXBORO, Mass. -- One of the stranger aspects of the Patriots' season has been Logan Mankins' difficulty with penalties. The veteran picked up another holding call on Sunday night, and he is tied for the team lead in penalties alongside Rob Gronkowski with six.
Head coach Bill Belichick, though, isn't concerned with the yellow flags his left guard is drawing...
Only Chad Ochocinco could make lemonade from lemons.
With a stay in New England that has inspired character assassins and radio blabmeisters to turn violent, Chad continues to thrive in the hot spotlight of the New England Patriots.
Ochocinco’s latest piece of insanity off the field is guaranteed to put him into the pantheon of Patriot legends whose...

By Brian MacPhersonMarcus Cannon is on the verge of returning to the field.
Patriots coach Bill Belichick, who tends to keep pending transactions to himself until they officially are announced, disclosed during a conference call with reporters Tuesday that the rookie offensive lineman will be placed on the Patriots' active roster after six weeks on the physically unable to perform...
