FOXBORO -- The Patriots' offense got back two of its biggest weapons Saturday night, as wide receiver Chris Hogan and running back James White returned to the lineup for the Pats' AFC divisional-round playoff game against the Titans.

Newly acquired wide receiver Kenny Britt was bumped off the active list by Hogan's return. And, as reported earlier today, running back Rex Burkhead also was out of action.

Defensive lineman Alan Branch -- who, like Burkhead, had returned to practice this week and was thought to be in line to play tonight -- was also listed as inactive.

The complete list of Patriots inactives:

CB Johnson Bademosi
DL Alan Branch
WR Kenny Britt
RB Rex Burkhead
OL Cole Colston
RB Mike Gillislee
LB David Harris
