FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- For months the biggest question facing the Patriots was whether Tom Brady would be on the field for the start of the 2016 regular season.While that question has been answered, its not the only issue to resolve for New Englands offense as it prepares for its third preseason game.Running back Dion Lewis has yet to appear in a training camp practice or preseason game. He had ACL surgery on his left knee in November and now reportedly could be facing a second procedure.There are also health concerns on the offensive line. Sebastian Vollmer was expected to be the starter at right tackle, but has missed both preseason games and remains on the physically unable to perform list with an undisclosed issue.In addition, guard Shaq Mason, who was not in uniform last week against Chicago after starting the preseason opener, reportedly has a broken hand. Lewis, Vollmer and Mason were all absent from the practice field on Monday.Brady was also absent after not being on the sideline for his second straight preseason game. Coach Bill Belichick declined to give details, saying only I dont comment on any personal situations.What Belichick has acknowledged is that because of Bradys upcoming four-game Deflategate suspension, the priority is to get Jimmy Garoppolo ready to play.The Patriots were hoping to see Lewis, who had four touchdowns in seven games before his injury last year, ready in time for the regular season after getting him back on the field in June during their offseason program.Losing Mason would also be a setback after he appeared in 14 games with 10 starts in 2015. The same can be said for Vollmer, a fixture on New Englands line since arriving in 2009.The way that we practice and the way that we play, whoevers out there were ready to go, said veteran left tackle Nate Solder, who played in just four games last season before going on season-ending injured reserve.Asked in particular what the team loses without Vollmer, Solder said there were so many things.As a group we just have to move forward, he said.The most likely candidate to step into Vollmers spot at right tackle is Marcus Cannon. Cannon filled Solders left tackle role when he went down last season, and he has started the first two preseason games at right tackle.If they want you to play, that must mean they have trust for you to play in that position -- wherever they put me, Cannon said.Belichick said he thinks Cannon has had a good camp so far and is capable of playing on either side of the line.There were other circumstances and because of his athleticism, his intelligence, his versatility, a lot of times he was the guy making the move, Belichick said. But I think weve got him in a good spot now.How the Patriots proceed at running back is a little more complicated, because whoever replaces Lewis will be needed in the passing game.LeGarrette Blount has played well this preseason, but is more of a traditional ball carrier. The same is true for a player such as Brandon Bolden.James White, in his third season out of Wisconsin, has shown ability catching the ball out of the backfield, but has had trouble at times getting in the end zone in the run game.Im always gonna be myself, White said. Your role can change on the team each and every year. So whatever my role happens to be, Im gonna go out there and do it to the best of my ability and just try and help this team win.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Kyle Hightower on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/khightower wholesale soccer jerseys china .

Lombardi, the grandson of former Green Bay Hall of Fame coach Vince Lombardi, has been an offensive assistant on Sean Paytons New Orleans staff since 2007. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Detroit Tigers have scored 10 runs in three straight games, and the task of stopping those scorching bats Saturday falls on rookie Blake Snell, who makes just his fifth career start.Snell has one of the Rays two wins in the last 16 games, but if hes going to win, hell have to beat one of the American Leagues best in Justin Verlander, who takes the mound as Detroit seeks its fifth win in a row.I think every single one of us knows what were capable of, said Fridays Rays starter Drew Smyly, who gave up six runs in dropping to 2-9 on the season. We just have to go out and do it. No teams going to let us just take one. We have to go out and take it ourselves.Verlander is a mortal 7-6 this season with a 4.30 ERA, and struggled in his last outing, giving up nine hits and eight earned runs in 4.2 innings in a loss to red-hot Cleveland. That ended a run of four straight victories for him that had dropped his ERA from 4.11 to 3.78.In his career against the Rays, Verlander is 7-3 with a 3.49 ERA -- in his only meeting against Tampa Bay last season, he dominated, giving up just one earned run in eight innings while striking out 10 batters.Snell was USA Todays Minor League Pitcher of the Year last season, and he has a 3.54 ERA in his first four appearrances.dddddddddddd. He has yet to give up a home run in four starts, the second longest streak to open a career in Rays history.Hell face a Tigers lineup thats ridiculously hot at the plate -- theyve scored 10 or more runs in three straight games for the first time in nearly 20 years. They had scored 18 straight runs against the Rays before Brad Millers two-run home run in the ninth inning Friday.The biggest bats have been Cameron Maybin -- six hits in the last two games -- and Victor Martinez, who crushed two three-run home runs in Fridays win. Martinez has a .354 career average against the Rays, the second-highest all-time among opponents with 250 plate appearances, trailing only the Twins Joe Mauer. His average at Tropicana Field is even stronger at .368 -- his best of any park in which hes played 10 or more games in his career.Hes got a bunch of hits and had the RBI early, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said of Maybins recent surge. Hes been like that since he came back. He does a nice job getting on base, hes a threat to steal, hes had good at-bats, for the most part since his return from the DL. He brings a great energy to our dugout.
