With just a couple hours remaining before kick off in Super Bowl XLVI, the Patriots and Giants released their official injury reports for the big game. There were no last minute toss-ups, and correspondingly, there were no real surprises on the inactives list. Most importantly, Rob Gronkowski is active and Bill Belichick has said the tight end will play. The amount of time he sees is still to be determined based on how his ankle responds, according to the Patriots' head coach.
The full list of inactives for both teams:
QB Ryan Mallett, RB Kevin Faulk, RB Shane Vereen, OLB/MLB Gary Guyton, G Donald Thomas, C/G Nick McDonald and DT Ron Brace.
WR Ramses Barden, RB Da'Rel Scott, LB Mark Herzlich, C Jim Cordle, DT Jimmy Kennedy, T James Brewer and DE Justin Trattou.
