Patriots Vollmer Out, 12 Questionable For Sunday

BOSTON (CBS) –  The New England Patriots have ruled offensive lineman Sebastian Vollmer out, with linebacker Jermaine Cunningham doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.

Cunningham, who had practiced all week, was limited in Friday’s practice with a hamstring injury.

Other than Vollmer, offensive lineman Marcus Cannon was the only Patriots to miss practice on Friday. His absence is not injury related, and is listed as probable. Cannon has seen some game action the last few weeks, and will help the Patriots offensive line combat a powerful Redskins pass-rush.

Wes Welker, limited all week with what is listed as a knee injury, is also probable for Sunday’s game.

The Patriots listed 12 players as questionable, including safety Patrick Chung and linebacker Brandon Spikes. Both have not played since suffering injuries November 6 against the New York Giants.
