Here's the list of absences from this morning: DE Richard Seymour CB Shawn Springs TE Benjamin Watson CB Jonathan Wilhite LB Tedy Bruschi DE Jarvis Green DE Le Kevin Smith DL Myron Pryor OL Mark LeVoir OL Ryan O'Callaghan OL George Bussey PUP WR Brandon Tate OL Rich Ohrnberger DL Darryl Richard DL Ty Warren OLB Shawn Crable (LB Tyrone McKenzie) Concerns: Seymour and Wilhite have now missed every practice since the first day, I believe. On Day One, Wilhite was playing with the starting DB's. Now he has missed a significant amount of time - clearly as the result of an injury. The corner corps is pretty deep, but this is too bad. Seymour has missed enough time now that he is clearly dealing with an injury as well - whether hamstring or something else. He probably doesn't need much camp to get ready, but he made a point of stating that this offseason he was in great shape and would benefit from a full training camp. Coupled with Warren on PUP, the Patriots have been forced to play Brace at end, and look at street free agents like Kevin Carter. Crable has missed enough practices now on PUP that he will be set back on defense. He spent most of last season on IR or inactive, so he didn't gain much experience. Given the strong need for a decent pass rushing OLB, this injury is tough for the team. The absence of Mark LeVoir and Ryan OCallaghan is a nice opportunity for Sebastian Vollmer. He'll get lots of playing time, accelerating his development. The PUP status of Ohrnberger and Richard certainly slow their development. Both positions are deep, so the team is not really affected. The players' chances of contributing are less.
