Patriots RB Dion Lewis needs second knee surgery, out indefinitely

Vollmer, meanwhile, had been on the physically unable to perform list with an undisclosed injury.

CSNNE's Tom Curran reported that the knee surgery is not to fix the ACL while ESPN's Adam Schefter adds that the "clean-up" procedure will keep Lewis out "indefinitely".

Boston Globe reporter Jim McBride reports that three key players on the Patriots offense are dealing with big-time injuries, and each could miss the start of the season. He played in just seven games, six of them starts, but in that time he showed just how versatile he was. In his first game after signing the contract, a 30-6 win over the Cowboys, Lewis rushed six times for 34 yards and caught eight passes for 59 yards and a touchdown. Lewis played in seven games last season before tearing his ACL against the Redskins on November 8. But Lewis has rarely been healthy in his National Football League career.

The protest didn't change the results, but it definitely made a point. "They only supported the Uzbek", Bayaraa said. In wrestling, failing to engage is a penalty known as passivity, and it costs you a point.

Curran also reported that quarterback Tom Brady has been excused from practices Sunday and Monday.

The Patriots have several health concerns along their offensive line, and now Shaq Mason's hand is among them.

Vollmer is a solid veteran and a starting tackle and a move to the IR means the Patriots don't expect him to be back soon. He had been a valuable, unexpected asset for the Patriots offense and his absence was certainly felt throughout the rest of the season.
