Vollmer, Washington make trip

September, 28, 2013
ATLANTA -- Starting right tackle Sebastian Vollmer and running back/kickoff returner Leon Washington, both of whom were questionable on Friday's injury report, have made the trip with the Patriots.

That means they still have a chance to play in Sunday night's game against the Falcons.

Vollmer missed the second half of the team's 22-3 win over the Buccaneers on Sept. 22 with a foot injury, while Washington was inactive for the game with a thigh injury.

The Patriots downgraded just two players Saturday -- receiver Danny Amendola and tight end Rob Gronkowski. They join special-teams captain Matthew Slater as players who will not play.

The Patriots must declare four more players inactive by 90 minutes before kickoff.
