FOXBORO, Mass. -- All-Pro defensive lineman Richard Seymour was inactive for the New England Patriots' divisional playoff game against Indianapolis on Sunday because of an injured left knee.

Seymour got hurt three weeks ago in a win against the New York Jets and missed the Patriots' final regular-season game. New England was off last week.

The Patriots also were without starting cornerbacks Ty Law and Tyrone Poole, both on injured reserve.

Robert Mathis, who was second on the Colts with 10 sacks, was inactive for Indianapolis. He injured his knee in last week's wild-card win over Denver.
