NOTES: (updated)

RB, Corey Dillon, who was held out of last weeks matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers, is expected to return to help the running game this week. Without Dillon, Kevin Faulk managed only 4 yards on 5 rushing attempts.

CB, Ty Law is gone for at least 4 weeks due to a foot injury. According to Laws agent, Law broke a bone in his foot, and will miss a few weeks, but is not expected to miss the season. The Patriots have only ruled Law out for the game against the Rams. Law is seeking a second medial opinion on his condition.

CB, Tyrone Poole, has not been able to get back onto the field for a few weeks due to his knee injury. His replacements have not fared well in his absence, but they'll have to suck it up, as Pool is OUT again this week. The team signed DB Scott Farley, who was with the team in training camp, as another option.

OL, Tom ashworth has been bothered by a back condition that hasn't improved enough to allow him to play. He was deactivated last week, and is expected to miss this week's game as well. If he can't go, the line will likely undergo additional shuffling. Check the Hot News for more info.
