Morris, Taylor, Light, Edelman, Green out

The New England Patriots on Friday ruled out five players for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins: Wide receiver Julian Edelman (forearm), defensive end Jarvis Green (knee), offensive lineman Matt Light (knee) and running backs Sammy Morris (knee) and Fred Taylor (ankle).

Three players -- cornerback Jonathan Wilhite (illness), defensive end Ty Warren (ankle) and tight end Benjamin Watson (back) -- were listed as questionable, which means there is a 50 percent chance they will play Sunday.
