Patriots-Bucs inactives: Trent Brown won't play in Week 4


The stage is set for Sunday night's much-anticipated showdown between the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Both teams will be without key players in Tom Brady's return to Foxboro. Fellow ex-Patriot Rob Gronkowski didn't make the trip to New England as he's recovering from a gruesome rib injury suffered last week. The Bucs also will be without dual-threat running back Giovani Bernard and veteran edge rusher Jason Pierre-Paul.

The Patriots' offensive line will be shorthanded once again as Trent Brown will miss his third consecutive week.
