Two of the starters, former NFL Defensive Player of the Year Bob Sanders and kicker Adam Vinatieri, haven't yet practiced.
Safety Antoine Bethea and defensive back Raheem Brock will not play because each has a broken hand. Cornerback Kelvin Hayden is out with a hamstring injury, and defensive end Robert Mathis is out with a bruised thigh.
Also missing the game will be backup quarterback Jim Sorgi and tight ends Gijon Robinson and Tom Santi.
