Ruled out are: Dowling, Bolden, White, Gregory, Chung, Scott, and Hernandez. Probably means that Pats will, again, be playing with a short bench. Guys nursing injuries include Mankins and Connolly. Guys like Dennard, Wilson, and Ebner are getting their baptism by fire. Other guys are going to need to step up. Guys like Tarpinian, Sterling Moore, Arrington (yeah right), Vereen, McDonald, Francis, Bequette, Edelman, and Brace.
