ORCHARD PARK, NY -- Six out of seven inactive Patriots could be gleaned from Friday's practice and participation report: Offensive lineman Will Svitek, who's been sporting a brace on his right knee, was declared "Out"; running back Brandon Bolden, receiver Aaron Dobson, and defensive backs Nate Ebner and Duron Harmon  were "Questionable" after being limited all week. 

Unlucky number seven? Running back Leon Washington. The designation was unexpected as New England just brought him back in Saturday, and is lacking in running back depth with Bolden sidelined. But Washington did look tight during warmups. He spent a decent amount of time under the watch of head Patriots trainer Harold Nash. 

PATRIOTS INACTIVES 

TE - Rob Gronkowski (Back/forearm)

RB - Brandon Bolden (Knee)

RB - Leon Washington 

WR - Aaron Dobson (Hamstring) 

DB - Nate Ebner (Ankle)

DB - Duron Harmon (Hamstring) 

For Buffalo, the deactivation of starting free safety Jairus Byrd isn't a shock as he was "Doubtful" to play. It's still a significant loss for the Bills.
