FOXBOROUGH -- The Patriots are preparing to be without offensive lineman Nick Kaczur for some time.
Kaczur is expected to be out for a significant amount of time with a back injury, according to reports and Belichick did not dispute that today.
"I don't think he'll be available in the immediate future, but we'll see how that goes. I'm not sure exactly how long that will or won't be," Belichick said.
The Patriots are already thin on the offensive line with guard Logan Mankins holding out in a contract dispute.
