The New England Patriots added offensive tackle Nate Solder to the team's injury report Saturday, raising some concern about the team's depth at right tackle in Sunday's matchup against the New York Jets.

Solder was listed as questionable with what the team announced as a concussion.

The rookie first-round pick isn't a starter for the Patriots, but has still started seven games this season as the team's swing tackle, mostly in place of Sebastian Vollmer. Vollmer, who returned to the starting lineup last week after missing five games, is questionable again this week with a back injury.

The Patriots have already ruled out linebacker Brandon Spikes (knee), while safety Patrick Chung (foot) and linebacker Jerod Mayo (knee) are among 10 players who are questionable.

Wide receiver Plaxico Burress (lower back) and running back Joe McKnight (toe) are expected to play for the Jets. Safety Brodney Pool (knee) and tight end Shawn Nelson (illness) are questionable.

The Patriots also signed safety Ross Ventrone to the 53-man roster from the practice squad. Wide receiver Tiquan Underwood was released.
