The New England Patriots are dealing with injuries to their offensive line, and they could be without another player for their matchup against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
Marcus Cannon was not present during the open portion of practice on Thursday afternoon. According to NESN’s Zack Cox, the veteran tackle is currently in concussion protocol and likely out against the Colts.
New England is already missing center David Andrews, who suffered a concussion against the Chicago Bears. He did not play in last Sunday’s game against the New York Jets.
Isaiah Wynn could start in Cannon’s place, and Yodny Cajuste would be the only backup for both the left and right tackle spots.
Indianapolis does have the ability to rush the passer. They have 19 sacks on the season, which puts them in the middle of the pack in the NFL. DeForest Buckner and Yannick Ngakoue are tied for the team lead with four sacks on the season.
Marcus Cannon is in concussion protocol. That means he's more than likely out for Sunday.
