FOXBOROUGH -- Wide receiver Danny Amendola is active for today's New England Patriots game against the Miami Dolphins.

That means Tom Brady will have his full complement of receivers for the first time this year, in New England's eighth game, as Rob Gronkowski is also active.

Amendola has been in-and-out of the Patriots lineup this year with injuries. He missed last week's game with a concussion.

However, cornerback Aqib Talib is again out of the lineup. He'll miss his second consecutive game with a hip injury suffered in the Oct. 13 win against the Saints.

Other inactives against the Dolphins include defensive lineman Tommy Kelly (knee), RB Leon Washington (ankle), wide receiver Josh Boyce, offensive lineman Chris Barker, linebacker Steve Beauharnais and defensive end Jake Bequette.
