When I looked I waS surprised to see it was not November but early August. I know... let's panic!
Guys, the Pats had a very very good O line last year and will have a very good one this year too. They have two solid Cs and a third as well. THey have 3 guys that can start at tackle and one of them, Solder, is likely the best pass protecting T the Pats have ever had. I expect Mankins and Waters back and they have 3 good backup O linemen. Will they possibly add another lineman? Yes, I would not be at all surprised. Especially at guard. Though Connolly, one of the Cs was really slated to play more guard I think then C originally. And he can do it.
Injuries are always a concern and depth is one of the things that has made BB teams so so good and adaptable.
Last thought, some teams are already losing people for the year. So far we have not (other than through retirement, not injury).
