Vollmer Out, 13 Questionable For Patriots Against Colts
BOSTON (CBS) – Offensive lineman Sebastian Vollmer will miss the Patriots matchup with the Colts on Sunday, with 13 more questionable.
Vollmer did not practice all week with a back and foot injury. He will miss his sixth game of the season on Sunday.
Linebacker Brandon Spikes, who was limited on Wednesday but did not practice Thursday or Friday, is doubtful.
Receiver Chad Ochocinco, who missed his first game with the Patriots last weekend against the Eagles, was a full participant in practice on Friday and is probable for Sunday.
There is some good news for New England, as both corner Devin McCourty and safety Patrick Chung are questionable, and likely to make a return after practicing all week.
McCourty has missed two games after suffering a separated shoulder against the Jets in Week 10. He said on Friday he is getting better every day, and hopes the shoulder feels it’s best on Sunday.
“It feels a lot better. It’s getting better and I’m hoping that each day that when I wake up I move it around and it feels better than it did the day before,” said McCourty.
But just because he was talking to the media does not mean he is a sure-thing to suit up on Sunday.
“Today you guys caught me right in between going to treatment. Being persistent pays off I guess,” he said.
