On Saturday evening the Patriots announced three additional players have been downgraded to out. Albert Haynesworth, Patrick Chung and Taylor Price all will not play on Sunday in Buffalo.

Yesterday, the team listed tight-end Aaron Hernandez (MCL Sprain), right tackle Sebastian Vollmer (back) and defensive lineman Mike Wright (concussion) as Out on Friday’s injury report as well.

These injuries make tomorrow's game even tougher. The Patriots, who are already thin at safety, now lose one of their best defensive backs with Patrick Chung. Surely, Patriots Nation wishes a speedy recovery for all of these injured players.

I still believe the Patriots can win, but the game will not be easy. These injuries give an opportunity to many of the back-ups, and should provide as a good measurement of New England's depth.
