Patriots LT Nate Solder (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Solder has said he plans to play this week, and starting off with even a limited practice is a good sign. He will likely play. Solder managed just four games last season because of a torn bicep.

Patriots LT Nate Solder (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 1.

The Pats also ruled out RG Jonathan Cooper (foot), in addition to Rob Gronkowski (hamstring). Backup RG Shaq Mason (hand) is listed as questionable. The Patriots lost RT Sebastian Vollmer (shoulder) and RB Dion Lewis (knee) to reserve/PUP in the preseason. Tom Brady is suspended. On Sunday night, this extremely shorthanded offense will take on a Cardinals defense that shuts down enemy rushing attacks and blitzes with the highest frequency in football. Jimmy Garoppolo's first-ever regular season start could be an ugly one.

Patriots LT Nate Solder (calf) has been cleared for training camp.

He missed OTAs and minicamp, but his status was never in doubt. Solder has a $10.32 million cap number this season.

Patriots LT Nate Solder will miss the rest of the season with a torn bicep.

Solder's injury was initially labeled as an elbow issue, so this comes as a big surprise. It's a huge loss for New England, even if Solder wasn't playing that well on Tom Brady's blind side. Look for Marcus Cannon to step in at left tackle, as the Patriots continue to sort out the interior of their offensive line. Solder just signed a two-year, $20.62 million extension through 2017 last month.

Patriots LT Nate Solder will have an MRI on his injured elbow Monday.

Patriots LT Nate Solder was forced from New England's Week 5 game against the Cowboys with an elbow injury, and will not return.

Patriots signed LT Nate Solder to a two-year, $20.62 million extension through 2017.

Solder will play 2015 on his fifth-year option of $7.4 million. He had a down 2014 season, grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 44 tackle and struggling badly in pass protection, giving up 29 combined sacks, hits, and hurries. But Solder is one of the mainstays on what has been an ever-changing Patriots line. As part of the deal, Solder can't be franchise-tagged after the 2017 season.

Patriots LT Nate Solder was diagnosed with testicular cancer in April of 2014.

Thankfully, the cancer was limited to one testicle and had not spread. So doctors removed it and Solder was back on the field for workouts in June. The 27-year-old went on to start every game at left tackle during the Patriots' Super Bowl run and is now trying to raise awareness about a disease that affects 1-in-263 men.

Patriots exercised LT Nate Solder's fifth-year club option for 2015.

Solder, the 17th overall pick out of Colorado in the 2011 draft, has started 44 of a possible 48 regular-season games since entering the league and graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 8 left tackle in 2013. He excels both in pass protection and as a run blocker. Solder will earn a little over $7 million in 2015.

Patriots LT Nate Solder (head) returned to practice Thursday.

He was officially limited. In two straight weeks, Solder has sustained a head injury. And in two straight weeks, he's going to suit up the following Sunday. Solder has been an anchor on Tom Brady's blind side this year, grading out as the league's No. 7 left tackle according to Pro Football Focus.

Patriots LT Nate Solder was forced from New England's Week 15 game against the Dolphins with a "head" injury, and will not return.

Solder's "head" injury is almost certainly a concussion, which would be his second in as many weeks after the Patriots rushed him back for Week 15. It's a troubling development, and has Solder very dicey for Week 16. LG Logan Mankins has kicked over to left tackle, with Josh Kline checking in at left guard.

Patriots LT Nate Solder has passed his concussion test.

Patriots LT Nate Solder (concussion) returned to practice Thursday.

He was officially limited. Solder has already been cleared after his concussion was discovered following Sunday's win over the Browns. Tom Brady will almost certainly have his blind-side protector this week.
