Patriots without LB Thomas, who wasn't listed on injury report

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Adalius Thomas is among the inactive players for the New England Patriots in their Sunday game against the Tennessee Titans.

The move was surprising for the starting outside linebacker, who wasn't on the participation and injury list.

Among the Patriots' other inactive players were left tackle Matt Light, who hurt his right knee last Sunday, and running back Fred Taylor, who missed his second consecutive game with a right ankle injury. Safety James Sanders and wide receiver Joey Galloway also were inactive.

The Titans were without injured defensive backs Cortland Finnegan (right hamstring), Nick Harper (broken right arm) and Vincent Fuller (broken right arm). Defensive end Jevon Kearse sat out his second consecutive game with a foot injury.
