Austin Collie, Rob Gronkowski out for Patriots vs. Bengals

Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports

The Patriots will also be without Rob Gronkowski for the fifth straight week.

The Patriots will have Danny Amendola in the lineup in Week 5 against the Bengals, but will continue to miss starting tight end Rob Gronkowski (back, forearm). The Patriots newly-added wide receiver, Austin Collie, is also inactive. Cincinnati will also be without a key starter in cornerback Leon Hall (hamstring) and will miss "franchise" player and starting defensive end Michael Johnson (concussion) as well.

As reported earlier in Week 5, Patriots running back Stevan Ridley will be among the inactives for New England. Special teams ace Matt Slater is also missing the game due to injury.

Here is a look at the inactives for both teams:
