Rob Gronkowski will remain on the sidelines for at least one more week, but the Patriots will get their first look at Austin Collie in game action on Sunday.
Collie, who sat out last week’s game — his first with the Patriots, will make his debut with the team after missing almost all of the 2012 season with a concussion. Running back Stevan Ridley, who missed the Cincinnati game with a knee injury, is active and will be back on the field for the Patriots against the Saints.
While Collie and Ridley get the nod for the Patriots on Sunday, some other key contributors will be forced to join Gronkowski on the sidelines and ride the pine a little longer.
Check out the full list of inactives for both the Patriots and Saints below.
