No Vollmer at practice again for the Patriots, which means they could turn to Solder at right tackle
|09.08.11 at 1:41 pm ET|
FOXBORO — For the second consecutive day, the only player absent from the start of Patriots’ practice was right tackle Sebastian Vollmer. New England practiced in the stadium for the second consecutive day under gloomy skies as preparation continued for the regular-season opener Monday night against Miami.
If Vollmer is unable to go on against the Dolphins, New England could make rookie tackle Nate Solder as a starter for the season-opener — Solder has swung between right and left tackle over the course of the preseason.
