Haynesworth questionable after missing practice with illness

Albert Haynesworth's regular-season debut with the New England Patriots may have to be put on hold after the team listed the defensive tackle as questionable with an illness on their injury report Saturday.

Haynesworth and starting right tackle Sebastian Vollmer were the lone Patriots not to participate in Saturday's practice, the final tuneup before Monday night's matchup with division-rival Miami. Both are listed as questionable on the injury report.

Saturday was the first day this week Haynesworth did not practice, and he was not listed on Friday's injury report.

Vollmer's absence likely means the third-year offensive tackle will not be on the field for New England Monday night. Rookie tackle Nate Solder is expected to fill in for Vollmer, who did not practice all week due to a back injury.

For the Dolphins, rookie running back Daniel Thomas is listed as questionable with a hamstring injury after being limited in practice all week. Running back Clay Charles -- out with a hamstring injury -- is the only other Dolphins player listed.

Haynesworth and Vollmer were two of 12 Patriots players listed as questionable, a group that included cornerback Kyle Arrington (hip), linebacker Dane Fletcher (thumb) and defensive ends Mark Anderson (knee) and Jermaine Cunningham (groin).
