New England Patriots

FOXBORO (CBS) – The Patriots will be without safety Patrick Chung and left tackle Matt Light Saturday afternoon against the Miami Dolphins.

Light’s injury is a new development, as he was not on the original injury report this week. In warm-ups, it was visible that he was having trouble getting out of his stance.  Without Light, the Pats could turn to the rookie Nate Solder and this will be a big test for him. Jason Taylor and Cameron Wake are good pass rushers, so this will be a tough task for a pair of rookies.

Guard Logan Mankins was also seen taking snaps at left tackle prior to the game. We’ll see what Bill has up his sleeve when Tom Brady and crew take the field.

Chung has been sidelined with an foot injury since New England’s loss to the Giants in November. During the week, he was confident he would make a return, but at this rate it looks like he will be done for the regular season.  Maybe he can suit up in the playoffs.

Also inactive for New England are offensive lineman Sebastian Vollmer, linebacker Brandon Spikes, defensive lineman Ron Brace, running back Shane Vereen and third-string quarterback Ryan Mallet.
