4. Matthew Judon
It's a no-brainer that Matthew Judon will be inactive against the Raiders. The four-time Pro-Bowler tore his biceps back in Week 4 and isn't expected to play until December at the earliest.
Even though an injury of that nature would lead to a player being placed on the injured reserve, the Patriots have opted to keep Judon on the active roster. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to put two and two together to figure out that he's guaranteed to be inactive in Week 6.
Judon's injury dealt a huge blow to New England's defense. He was on pace for a career-best 17 sacks before tearing his biceps while also tallying 10 solo tackles and 9 QB hits through four games. His 4 sacks on the year are still two more than the Pats' next-best player.
Hopefully, Judon's recovery goes as planned and he can suit up down the stretch to end the season on a high note. Until then, don't expect to see him on the gridiron any time soon.
