Vollmer misses practice, could be out awhile

FOXBORO -- The Patriots participated in a padless walkthough at Gillette Stadium on Wednesday, in preparation for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. Only one player, offensive lineman Sebastian Vollmer was missing from the session, and CSNNE's Mike Giardi reports that he will be out for the foreseeable future with not just a back injury, but a foot injury too.

Linebackers Dane Fletcher (thumb) and Brandon Spikes (knee) returned in a limited fashion, but since it was only a walkthrough, we'll see if they participate the rest of the week.

Other notably limited participants were Devin McCourty (shoulder), Patrick Chung (foot), James Ihedigbo (shoulder).
