Patriots Get More Bad Injury News, Sebastian Vollmer Headed to IRJim O'Connor - USA TODAY Sports

Well, a quiet Sunday afternoon suddenly isn’t. The Patriots got a double whammy on Sunday when they learned to Dion Lewis needs another surgery and will be out an additional 8-10 weeks, and right tackle Sebastian Vollmer is likely headed to IR for a bad hip as well as a balky shoulder. Vollmer has been on PUP since training camp began.  The news was first reported by Jim McBride of the Boston Globe.

Guard Shaq Mason it has been reported missed the Chicago Bears preseason game with a broken hand. Mason was one of the team’s most reliable offensive linemen in 2015.

Vollmer could conceivably still play in 2016. If the Patriots decide to place Vollmer on the IR, under the new rules, he could return later in the season. Each team is only allowed one such move per year and they don’t have to designate which player will return as in the past. We had Vollmer as starting the season on PUP in our latest roster projection but now it looks like he could be gone for the entire year.

Now Marcus Cannon, who has been getting most of the starting reps during training camp will begin the season as the team’s starting right tackle opposite of Nate Solder. We posted numerous times this spring that the team needed to address the RT of the future. The Patriots, however, opted to stand pat and this is one decision that may come back to haunt them.

They also have Cameron Fleming, La Adrian Waddle and Keavon Milton as backups.
