Welker among those not dressed


TAMPA -- Patriots receiver Wes Welker headlines the group of players not dressed for tonight's game against the Buccaneers. Welker was held out of Thursday's practice, which was the first indication he wouldn't play tonight.

Those not dressed as they were not spotted in warmups:

WR Jabar Gaffney

S Patrick Chung

S Will Allen

S Josh Barrett

CB Ross Ventrone

LB Tracy White

OT Matt Kopa

TE Visanthe Shiancoe

WR Wes Welker

DL Gerard Warren

It is notable that offensive lineman Sebastian Vollmer is dressed, although it is uncertain if he will play. He did line up with the first unit at right tackle in warmups.

Also, defensive lineman Myron Pryor and tight end Jake Ballard remain on the physically unable to perform list and offensive lineman Markus Zusevics remains on the non-football injury list.
