Burfict, Jones inactive for unbeaten Bengals

       FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) _ Linebacker Vontaze Burfict and wide receiver Marvin Jones are inactive for the Cincinnati Bengals as they try to remain unbeaten.

        Burfict is missing his second straight game after suffering a concussion. Jones is out with a sore ankle and has been sidelined all season after breaking a bone in his left foot during training camp. Left guard Kevin Zeitler also is out of Sunday night’s game against the New England Patriots with a calf injury.

        Inactive for the Patriots are linebacker Dont’a Hightower with a knee injury and cornerback Alfonzo Dennard with a shoulder injury.

        Wide receiver Aaron Dobson is active for the second time. He wasn’t on the injury report during the three games he missed after catching 37 passes as a rookie second-round draft choice last season.
