Patriots announce Sebastian Vollmer is done for the season

Vollmer AP

Patriots right tackle Sebastian Vollmer’s season is over.

The Patriots announced today that Vollmer has been placed on season-ending injured reserve after suffering a leg injury on Sunday against the Dolphins.

That news is not unexpected, as Vollmer needed surgery after breaking his leg. But it is a significant blow to New England. Vollmer had started every game this season and was playing well on an offense that has had plenty of difficulties elsewhere.

Marcus Cannon is expected to be the starting right tackle in New England going forward.

The roster spot opened up by putting Vollmer on IR will be taken by defensive tackle Isaac Sopoaga, who arrived in a trade with the Eagles today.

    Maybe he can be replaced by Sebastian Cabot or Uncle Bill.

    The Patriot Way lol.

  7. j0esixpack says: Oct 29, 2013 6:45 PM

    Sorry to lose Sea Bass. But recovering cancer patient Marcus Cannon is primed to step up and be even more of an inspiration than he already is!

  15. TheWizard says: Oct 29, 2013 7:00 PM

    I don’t expect much drop off with Cannon, in fact, the running game to the right side may improve.

  16. bubba9er says: Oct 29, 2013 7:02 PM

    Sopo’aga is a very strong man inside. The 49ers are missing him a bit this year – Good pick up by the Pats.

  22. filthymcnastyog says: Oct 29, 2013 7:12 PM

    Haters keep hating. Mouth breathers keep breathing. BB and Brady will live on in infamy as 2 of the greatest and their jobs. No amount of trolling can erase the statistics and records that will go down as one of the greatest era’s the NFL has ever seen. They have cemented their place in history and will receive eternal football life.

  23. blue18hutthutt says: Oct 29, 2013 7:12 PM

    This is a big blow – according to Profootballfocus, Volmer was the 8th ranked tackle in pass protection

    But somehow, the Pats seem to find ways to plug another body into that OL and give Brady all day

  25. craniator says: Oct 29, 2013 7:17 PM

    Marcus Cannon is a good up and coming player , but the bottom line is that the Patriots will essentially have an offensive guard lining up at the right tackle position.

    Blue18 -

    Reading comprehension was never your strong suit at Sylvan, was it? I said absolutely nothing about Seattle being good or bad, so how does that make me “delusional” and “self important”. Do explain.

    Also, my kid sister uses all caps LMAO all the time too. It’s super cute when she does it. Kind of lame and creepy when a grown adult (I think?) uses it as well.

    Clean it up

    Steelersaregodsteam: you’re team is going to have their asses handed to them this week. Also, Pouncey will be served this week too. Ben is still a rapist and that is why he paid those girls off.

  29. thereyougo2 says: Oct 29, 2013 8:05 PM

    Stopoaga let go by two teams within 9 months leaves one to consider he can no longer get it done. Then you realize the second to let him go is Philadelphia and you know he’s done.

  30. drewzducks says: Oct 29, 2013 8:09 PM

    stealersareadogsteam … Do all former Stealers end up dead, living in a cardboard box, or just their HOFers ? The Rooney’s murdered Webster, the facts don’t lie.

  31. radrntn says: Oct 29, 2013 8:09 PM

    well I for one hated to see the patriots draft Marcus Cannon. I think this kid is going to be a stud. He only fell in the draft because of his medical condition at the time. I wish him the best, but still hate the patriots. However I loved the seymour trade.

  32. patsfansknowitall says: Oct 29, 2013 8:49 PM

    Serious question, i’m new to the US working on assignment – why do people accuse the patriots of cheating? They seem like a model franchise…

    ^ Good call. Seattle is a roided out, bagtastic squad with some of the dumbest fans in the sport. Yell, Seattle fan in your concert hall, then yell louder. Then yell more. Wow, you’re such great fans.

  34. 8man says: Oct 29, 2013 9:05 PM

    It’s an old saying, “Injuries are part of the game.” Deep down you just hope that at some point your team hit’s its “quota” and it’s over.

    Seems like a lot of quality guys for the Patriots are done for the year, but many fanbases feel the same way about their squads.

    I think we all agree, the game would be better served if all teams stayed healthy.

    Belichick. Best coach in NFL history.

    Brady. Best qb in NFL history.

    Patriots. Best team in NFL history.

    They accuse the pats of cheating mainly cause their teams suck and the pats never do. Not since 2001 anyway. Worst 6-2 team in history? We are still 6-2 moron. In the immortal words of triple H “suck it”

  38. rally411 says: Oct 29, 2013 9:42 PM

    “All those injuries this year and yet they’re still in first place. Damned Bill your good.”

    Sure is. And it helps that his team plays in a division where the other teams are picking in the top 10 of the draft year-in and year-out. But you go ahead an feel good about yourselves, patsie fans.

    Every year tommy terrific gets a year older & closer to retirement. The second coming of Jerry Rice couldn’t save this team now.
    2013 patsies= Dead Team Walking

  39. bmoreravens1012013 says: Oct 29, 2013 10:08 PM

    As a Ravens fan, I feel bad for the patriots , I’m not happy. As much as I cant stand The patriots , I still want to see a good, clean football game. The patriots have already been decimated by key injuries, one more is just overkill in my opinion. The crazy thing is , despite the loss, Brady and the bunch will probably see themselves to 7-2 in some crazy way… now that being said, Go Ravens!!

    They were caught breaking NFL rules about using video surveillance on other teams.

    But that’s only half of the answer.

    NFL fans whose favorite team doesn’t win act like babies for the most part. We can turn into soccer fans who got too drunk to riot. That and internet trolling is a really fun way to pass time.

    Ilovebaxter = tool

    You see, don’t you, that most people in America actually despise the pats, the coach who cheated, and by association Brady who is having another bad year.

    Just so you are aware. Yo.

  45. aaronp2098 says: Oct 30, 2013 12:49 AM

    It’s crazy to think he was the best they have on the O tackle this year. Shows how far N Solder play has fallen off from last year.

    Pats cheat and the hoodie is a whiner
    BB is an embarrassment to the NFL
    If he was as good as the pats fans think he would be the face of the NFL
    Not respected anywhere else

    Cool response. LOL @ believing in karma, and laughing at someone else’s pain. Looking smart as usual.

  49. patriotenvy says: Oct 30, 2013 2:09 PM

    All the idiots who are happy and think karma did this are bring BAD karma on themselves. See, there are two types of karma, but you people just say “karma”. There is also good karma. Karma knows what you are all thinking and what’s in your heart. It’s coming for you too!
