FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is inactive against the New Orleans Saints.
The two-time Pro Bowl player was inactive Sunday for the sixth straight week and hasn't played after off-season surgery on his left forearm and back.
For the Saints, safety Roman Harper missed his fourth game with a knee injury, and wide receiver Lance Moore missed his third with a hand injury. The other inactive Saints were Zach Strief, Mark Ingram, Tyrunn Walker, Martez Wilson and Rod Sweeting.
