Vollmer's labrum bothered him throughout the year, though it didn't cost him any games. ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss said Vollmer should be "ready for action when it counts."

The Patriots have tweaked RT Sebastian Vollmer's contract.

The deal actually makes playing-time incentives easier for Vollmer to obtain. He'll earn an extra $1 million if he plays 70 percent of the Patriots' offensive snaps this season, and $2 million if that number rises to 80 percent. The previous thresholds were 80 and 90, respectively. Vollmer has played 91.2 percent of the Pats' snaps thus far.

Patriots RT Sebastian Vollmer (leg) is participating in OTAs.

Vollmer broke his leg in October and should be full-go for training camp. He received extremely strong marks in pass protection last season.

Patriots placed RT Sebastian Vollmer on injured reserve with a broken right leg, ending his season.

It's a huge blow for the Pats, as their offensive line had been one of the few areas of the team not racked by injury. Vollmer was playing some of the best football of his career, grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 2 right tackle. He'll be replaced by third-year G/C Marcus Cannon. Signed through 2016, Vollmer will be back as the Patriots' right tackle next season, but the injury costs him a $1 million roster bonus. Vollmer is also losing out on playing-time incentives.

The Boston Herald reports Patriots RT Sebastian Vollmer has been diagnosed with a broken right leg, and is undergoing surgery on Monday.

It's likely a season-ending injury for Vollmer, who is in the midst of a strong campaign. However, it's not outside the realm of possibility that the Patriots could stash Vollmer on their weekly inactives list if they believe he could return for the playoffs. Vollmer has graded out as the No. 2 right tackle in Pro Football Focus' ratings. It's just one more issue for a struggling Tom Brady to deal with. Marcus Cannon should slide in opposite LT Nate Solder. It's a big downgrade.

Vollmer got rolled up on a stretch run play to the right side, and needed an air cast to be placed on his leg. Vollmer's screams could be heard on television he was in so much pain. Look for Marcus Cannon to replace him at right tackle.
