Vollmer, who is on the Patriots' preseason PUP list, continues to deal with a nagging hip injury, CSN New England reports.

EDGE Analysis

As a result, the Patriots' starting right tackle is a candidate to wind up on regular season PUP or even IR. In Vollmer's absence, Marcus Cannon now appears on track to start opposite left tackle Nate Solder, with the team's line further taxed by news Sunday that guard Shaq Mason has a broken hand.

Vollmer (knee) is set to open training camp on the Patriots' active/PUP list, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Vollmer dealt with nagging knee injuries throughout the 2015 campaign which have evidently extended into this offseason. However, the Patriots are likely exercising caution with their valuable offensive lineman as he further proved his versatility last season by sliding over to protect Tom Brady's blind side when LT Nate Solder (biceps) was lost to IR after just four games. When he's cleared to practice, Vollmer will revert back to his natural right tackle position.

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, and more in playing-time incentives.
