I'm surprised to see so many people on the Patriots injury list. With the history of the Patriots keeping everything close to the chest, that's a lot of people to now say are hurting - especially going in to Week 1. With Haynesworth listed as questionable, it's possible the Dolphins only have to worry about giant Vince Wilfork instead of both giant players.
The Patroits are decimated right now along their offensive line. With starters Connolly and Vollmer, and backup Wendell all hurting, against the strength and depth of the Dolphins' front seven, the Patriots are down in probably the worst position they could be.
For the Dolphins, I'm not surprised by either of the two players' statuses. I hope Thomas can play, as I would like to see him get some touches and some experiences, but the signing of Larry Johnson doesn't make it as probably that Thomas will make it onto thee field. Clay is out - kind of makes me miss Lousaka Polite.
