The New England Patriots are on the road this week when they visit Oakland to battle the Raiders (Sunday, 4:15). The team released its latest injury report and the good news for Pats fans is that the much maligned secondary looks as though it will be getting back some key contributors.
Both, rookie cornerback Ras-I Dowling (hip) and safety Patrick Chung (hand) are listed as questionable after sitting out the teams 38-31 loss to the Buffalo Bills last week. Kyle Arrington and Leigh Bodden are also listed as questionable heading into the game this weekend.
Among the players not in action this week, Sebastian Vollmer is the most troubling as he continues to struggle with back problems. Both Aaron Hernandez and Mike Wright will sit this one out as well.
