Patriots SS Patrick Chung, who suffered a knee injury in the team's Week Seven win over the Chargers, will be inactive for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Chung returned to practice in a limited basis on Thursday and Friday and was listed as questionable. Chung is second on the team with 48 tackles. He also has a blocked punt and blocked field goal.

WR Taylor Price, WR Matthew Slater, RB Fred Taylor, S Jarrad Page, OL Rich Ohrnberger, OL Mark LeVoir and DL Kyle Love are the rest of the Patriots' inactives.

The way we see it

With Page, the third safety on the depth chart, also out, James Sanders will start opposite Brandon Meriweather. Against the Chargers, undrafted rookie Sergio Brown played his first NFL game and made some key stops, he will likely be the third safety again today. CB Terrence Wheatley is active for the first time this season and could help in the secondary.
