Welker among those not dressed

August, 24, 2012
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.
