The Patriots today announced the following 5 players will definitely not play in the season opener against Miami on Monday Night:-
- (OT) Sebastian Vollmer (Back)
- (DL)¬†Jermaine¬†Cunningham (Hamstring)
- (WR) Taylor Price (Hamstring)
- (OL) Ryan Wendell (Calf)
- (LB) Jeff Tarpinian (Knee)
Sebastian Vollmer was almost a certainty before this announcement to miss tomorrow’s game as he didn’t practice all week. Taylor Price being out may be a slight concern at receiver and may result in Mathew¬†Slater needing to step up for one game at least. ¬†Wendell hasn’t been seen all preseason so it is of little surprise that we aren’t seeing him and despite limited participation, it is clear Price, Tarpinian and Cunningham are not game ready.
The Patriots still¬†have¬†two more players to deactivate for the game day roster.
