Foot Injury Prevents Pats’ Vollmer From Practicing

Patriots_Sebastian_Vollmer_2013FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Starting right tackle Sebastian Vollmer, who didn’t play in the second half of Sunday’s 23-3 win over the Buccaneers after injuring his foot, was not present for the start of practice Wednesday.

The Boston Herald reported that Vollmer has a sprained foot.

In Vollmer’s absence Sunday, third-year player Marcus Cannon stepped in at right tackle. The Patriots’ depth would also get a boost if veteran Will Svitek, a swing tackle and guard who missed the first three games with a knee injury, returns to action. Svitek, the former Atlanta Falcon, appears to be making progress.
