FOXBORO, Mass. — The New England Patriots were forced to scramble and play a right tackle at left tackle and a center at right tackle Sunday, but their injury woes could be lightened soon.
Offensive tackle Marcus Cannon was spotted in the Patriots’ locker room Monday walking around without a limp. Cannon injured his toe in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts and hasn’t practiced since. Cannon didn’t have a cast or walking boot on his foot.
Rookie guard Tre’ Jackson, who hurt his knee in Week 8 against the Miami Dolphins, also was spotted in the locker room. He had a brace on his left knee but didn’t appear to be limping.
The Patriots dressed just six offensive linemen against the Washington Redskins in Week 9. They played Bryan Stork at right tackle and moved Cameron Fleming to left tackle after Sebastian Vollmer sustained a head injury. Vollmer wasn’t spotted in the Patriots’ locker room.
It also appeared Jamie Collins, who sat out Sunday with an illness, hadn’t been to the Patriots’ facility Monday. His chair was propped against his locker during media availability.
The Patriots have Tuesday off and will be back for practice Wednesday.
