Depth chart along the line of scrimmage

By Mike Reiss

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Following up on Tedy Bruschi's comments about the Patriots' depth concerns along the line of scrimmage, here is a look at the projected depth chart on the defensive line and offensive line for Thursday's preseason game against the Falcons:

LDE: Gerard Warren/Ron Brace/Kade Weston

NT: Vince Wilfork/Myron Pryor/Kyle Love

RDE: Mike Wright/Brandon Deaderick/Darryl Richard

Veteran Damione Lewis, a backup at left defensive end in the preseason opener, is not expected to play. The status of Pryor, who left Tuesday afternoon's practice with a hand injury, will also be important to monitor.

LT: Matt Light/Mark LeVoir/Brian Simmons

LG: Dan Connolly/Eric Ghiaciuc/Ted Larsen

C: Dan Koppen/Ryan Wendell

RG: Stephen Neal/Rich Ohrnberger

RT: Sebastian Vollmer/Thomas Welch

The interior backups -- Ghiaciuc, Larsen, Wendell and Ohrnenberger -- should rotate between left guard, center and right guard once entering the game.
