The Patriots have downgraded five players to out for the season opener against Miami:

T Sebastian Vollmer
LB Jermaine Cunningham
WR Taylor Price
LB Jeff Tarpinian
OL Ryan Wendell

Vollmer was expected, as he did not practice all week. His absence means rookie Nate Solder will likely start at right tackle, where he will see heavy doses of Dolphins' pass rusher Cameron Wake.

On the plus side, Albert Haynesworth made the trip, which means there's a good chance he'll play tomorrow - the defensive tackle missed yesterday's practice due to illness.
