FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Oakland Raiders running back Maurice Jones-Drew is inactive for the second straight game with a right hand injury.

Darren McFadden is taking his spot against the New England Patriots in Sunday's game.

The Raiders also are without two starting linebackers, Nick Roach for the second game in a row with a concussion and Sio Moore with an ankle injury suffered a week earlier in a 30-14 loss to the Houston Texans.

Matt McGloin is the backup quarterback instead of Matt Schaub, who is inactive for a non-injury related reason.

Among the inactive players for the Patriots are cornerback Alfonzo Dennard (shoulder), center Ryan Wendell (knee) and wide receiver Aaron Dobson (not on the injury report).
