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.
