Patriots first round pick Nate Solder apparently suffered concussion in practice this week.
The team added him to the injury report as questionable with a concussion Saturday; he practiced throughout the week. Solder started for the Patriots for most of this season, but has recently come off the bench after Sebastian Vollmer returned from injury at right tackle.
The Patriots still used Solder on 22 snaps as an extra tackle/tight end last week against the Giants, according to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com. Solder is also the “swing tackle” in case Matt Light or Vollmer suffer an injury.
It’s possible the team could activate Marcus Cannon from the PUP list to help boost the team’s offensive line depth.
