DENVER (AP) -- Former Patriots cornerback Marquice Cole is among the Broncos' inactives for the AFC title game.

Cole was released by New England on Dec. 26 and signed by the Broncos last week to replace injured cornerback Chris Harris Jr., who blew out his right knee against San Diego.

For New England, punter Ray Allen (shoulder) and receiver Aaron Dobson (foot) will both play. Allen hurt his right shoulder against Indianapolis when he was hit after fielding a bad punt.

The Patriots' inactives are Kenbrell Thompkins (hip, concussion), Steve Beauharnais (illness), Justin Green, D.J. Williams, Chris Barker, Isaac Sopoaga and Jake Bequette.

Other inactives for the Broncos are Zac Dysert, Ronnie Hillman, Vinston Painter, Chris Kuper, Joel Dreessen and Sione Fua.
