Broken leg, per the Boston Globe. Expect Marcus Cannon to be plugged in at RT. Consistency will likely suffer some in pass-blocking, but run-blocking I'm fairly sure he's Vollmer's equal.

Quote:
Right tackle Sebastian Vollmer left Sunday’s game against the Dolphins midway through the second quarter when he was rolled into while blocking. His pained scream was picked up by CBS microphones and he pounded the turf with his hands.

Vollmer’s right leg was put in an air cast and he was taken from the field in a cart, with many of his teammates coming over and offering their support before he was driven away. Vollmer has a broken bone in his lower right leg, and his season well could be over.

Wilfork, Mayo, and now Vollmer...when does it stop? Don't think there's any other team right now with more blows to them than the Pats.

Plenty teams in the league are going through the injury bug right now.

The Packers, for instance, have missed Matthews, Perry, Hayward, Burnett, Brad Jones, James Jones, Cobb and Finley. All of these guys are starters - all of them are good and all of them have missed or will miss 3+ games, with many of them missing much larger chunks and in addition to Bulaga tearing his ACL before the season, JC Tretter going on IR before TC, Sherrod's prolonged leg injury and nerve recovery (those 3 guys likely would have started at LT, C, and RT).

In fact, injuries reached a comical point in our loss against the Bengals - the one time I will definitively point to injuries as an excuse, in which we lost Eddie Lacy and Jermichael Finley in the 1st half to a concussion, Clay Matthews in the second half to a hamstring, Starks in the 3rd quarter to a leg injury which would keep him out of the next 3 games as well, and Johnathan Franklin on the last drive (this of course in addition to RB DuJuan Harris being placed on IR in the preseason). We had zero RB's to operate with on the last drive and as such, the pass rushers simply had to pin their ears down and get their hands up at the LOS. Its no wonder we were unable to hold onto our 30-14 lead in the late 3rd-fourth quarters.

Here's another fun story: against the Browns (IIRC), we had to force an injured Mike Neal to "suit up" so we met the requirement of 46 active players to avoid forfeiting the game.

For Packers fans, it never stops. Wink

His screaming was tough to listen to live. Sad

Hearing a 300 lbs grown man scream in pain is never a fun thing to listen to. These guys in the trenches are some of the toughest guys on the planet and to hear them scream like that would be terrible. Haven't heard it yet and not sure I want to.

It was really tough to watch. You could hear him on the live broadcast though. Initially thought it was somebody angry about a play blowing up, but nope, just a shattered leg bone.

dont know about that. There are a lot of teams worse off. Bears are missing their two of their best players. My cowboys are missing ware, Spencer, Austin, Ratliff, Murray, church, Wilcox, Claiborne, and possibly waters.

All of those beside Spencer are coming back and Ratliff isn't even a Cowboy. He's talking about guys missing the whole year, the Pats have obviously had a lot more injuries than just the 3. But he's meaning the 3 all-pro caliber players we have on IR now.

But you're right, lots of teams have bad injuries. Packers and Bears certainly come to mind.

Are you missing half of your starters? Because the Falcons are.

Let's just settle this objectively. Prior to this weekend (and Vollmer's injury), the Pats led the NFL with over $20M in cap hits on IR. Vollmer is another $3M. My guess is that they're still leading in that category.

That's one of the most biased stats I've ever seen.

How is it biased? Adam Schefter reported it a couple weeks ago.

Because cap hit /=/ amount of players injured. Wilfork makes up half of that number alone.
