The Patriots have downgraded three more players to out for tomorrow's game: DT Albert Haynesworth, S Patrick Chung and WR Taylor Price.

Haynesworth did not practice Thursday or Friday, but was listed as questionable with a back issue. With Myron Pryor placed on IR earlier this week, the Pats may be forced to play more 3-4 looks because of the lack of depth at defensive tackle.

Chung underwent surgery on his thumb this week, and though he did practice yesterday, he also was listed as questionable. He has a hard cast on his right hand. His absence also leads to depth problems at the position, and is almost certainly why Ross Ventrone was promoted off the practice squad earlier today.

With Aaron Hernandez dealing with a knee injury that will sideline him for at least a couple of weeks, Price had an opportunity to make an impact, but a nagging hamstring injury will prevent him from doing that tomorrow.
