Fred Taylor (toe) is active for Thursday's game against the Lions.
It will be Taylor's first game since Week 3, as the veteran has been dealing with turf toe on both feet. We still expect BenJarvus Green-Ellis to be the Patriots' lead back, but Taylor should see a handful of touches. Tom Brady, as expected, is also active. The Patriots inactives are WR Taylor Price, T Mark LeVoir, G Rich Ohrnberger, G Stephen Neal, DL Myron Pryor, DL Brandon Deaderick, DL Mike Wright and CB Jonathan Wilhite.
