The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe expects Patriots RT Sebastian Vollmer (hip, shoulder) to open the season on the reserve/PUP list.

Vollmer is eligible for reserve/PUP because he's spent all of camp on active/PUP. Leaving him on reserve/PUP makes more sense than I.R. because the Patriots could bring back Vollmer if he's healthy after six games. Vollmer being healthy by that point does sound unlikely, however, based on the latest reports. Marcus Cannon is No. 2 on the Patriots' right tackle depth chart.
Aug 21 - 1:44 PM

Patriots RT Sebastian Vollmer will reportedly be placed on injured reserve with a nagging hip injury.

It's been a rough morning for the Pats with Dion Lewis slated to undergo a second knee surgery and now Vollmer appearing unlikely to play this season. It's a big blow to an offensive line that struggled to protect Tom Brady in last year's playoffs. Marcus Cannon is a candidate to take over for Vollmer.

Patriots RT Sebastian Vollmer and T/G Marcus Cannon "don't know their fates," according to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe.

Vollmer is regarded as one of the best tackles in football when healthy, so it would be somewhat surprising if the Pats cut him loose. Of course, we're dealing with Bill Belichick, who is notoriously ruthless in his handling of players perceived to be on the decline. Dumping Cannon seems like a no-brainer following his lackluster play in the postseason. Cutting both would free up $10 million in cap space.
Feb 28 - 9:59 AM

The Patriots have ruled out LT Sebastian Vollmer (knee), RE Chandler Jones (toe, abdomen), and LB Dont'a Hightower (knee) for Week 17.

There's a chance the Pats could lose the AFC's No. 1 seed, but they aren't taking any chances with their banged-up players. The decision to deactivate so many key cogs may suggest a willingness to also rest some starters if New England gets up early on Miami. Vollmer and Jones are fully expected to be ready for the playoffs. Hightower is a bit less certain.
Jan 1 - 4:29 PM

CSN New England reports Patriots LT Sebastian Vollmer (knee) will likely sit out Week 17, but will return for the postseason.

It's a much needed break for the Patriots, who are just about at the point of no return with injuries. With the Pats having sewn up a first-round bye, Vollmer now has two weeks to rest before returning to action. L'Adrian Waddle or Cameron Fleming will man the blindside in Week 17, increasing the chances Tom Brady gets some rest.

The Patriots hope LT Sebastian Vollmer suffered only a sprain Week 16 against the Jets.

The team should know more following a Monday MRI, but the hope is he can return for the playoffs. Vollmer was rolled up from behind on the Patriots' first possession and had to be carted off the field. New England is dangerously thin at tackle.

Patriots LT Sebastian Vollmer was forced from New England's Week 16 game against the Jets with a left leg injury, and will not return.

Vollmer got rolled up from behind by multiple players on a Joey Iosefa run. He was carted off the field, and immediately ruled out for the day. Quick rule outs often suggest a serious injury. Vollmer, of course, was filling in for Nate Solder, who is out for the season. He's been replaced by Lions castoff LaAdrian Waddle. It's a big issue for the Pats.

Patriots LT Sebastian Vollmer (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 11.

Vollmer returned to limited practice this week and looks like he could get cleared for Monday night. The Patriots are also hoping to get RT Marcus Cannon (questionable, toe) and RG Tre' Jackson (questionable, knee) back this week.

Patriots LT Sebastian Vollmer exited Week 9 against the Redskins with a head injury.

He is questionable to return. Cameron Fleming will switch over to the left side with Bryan Stork, who was just activated off injured reserve-designated to return Saturday, playing right tackle. The Patriots are ridiculously beat up on the offensive line.
Sun, Nov 8, 2015 02:44:00 PM

RT Sebastian Vollmer was forced from the Patriots' Week 2 game against the Bills with a finger injury, and is questionable to return.

Losing Vollmer shouldn't alter New England's game plan that drastically. He's been rotating with Marcus Cannon at right tackle.

Patriots RT Sebastian Vollmer (shoulder) is participating as camp opens.

Vollmer underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum shortly after the Super Bowl. The top-11 tackle per PFF's grades is ready to go on the right side, opposite left tackle Nate Solder.

Patriots RT Sebastian Vollmer (shoulder) should be ready for the start of training camp next month.

Vollmer had surgery to repair a torn labrum shortly after last season. Despite playing hurt last year, the 29-year-old still finished 11th out of 84 qualifiers in PFF's offensive tackle ratings.
Sun, Jun 14, 2015 09:38:00 AM

Patriots RT Sebastian Vollmer underwent offseason shoulder surgery.

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." He's finished with positive grades from Pro Football Focus in both pass blocking and run blocking each of the last four seasons.
