For the Patriots, losing two offensive linemen could be a real problem against the Jets blitz-happy defense. Rookie Sebastian Vollmer has filled in for an injured Matt Light over the past few games. With Stephen Neal out Dan Connolly will get his first start.

The absence of Jarvis Green has been an issue the Patriots have dealt with in the past few weeks since Green elected to undergo knee surgery during the bye week . Ty Warren, listed on the injury report, will play.

At linebacker, Ninkovich is out. But the good news is that the Tully Banta-Cain will be playing, despite being listed on the injury report.
