Pats likely to start 2 rookie OL

Posted by Chris Brown on September 18, 2015 – 4:52 pm

Last week the Patriots were forced to play a pair of rookies on the interior of their offensive line. They even had to add a third at times. It looks like they’ll need to start two Sunday against the Bills.

With starting G Ryan Wendell out for a second straight week with an illness, the Patriots are expected to flip G Josh Kline to Wendell’s position and start Shaq Mason as they did last week at LG. 

The task is obviously much tougher for the two rookies this week facing Buffalo’s vaunted defensive line in a road atmosphere. 

Here’s the rest of New England’s injury report. 

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

OUT

G Ryan Wendell – Illness

DOUBTFUL

DT Dominique Easley – Hip

PROBABLE

RB Travaris Cadet – Hamstring

DE Trey Flowers – Knee

S Tavon Wilson – Quadricep
