Vrabel, who forced three fumbles and scored a touchdown in last Sunday's 52-7 win over Washington, has a shoulder injury. Wilson missed that game and Watson missed the last two games with ankle injuries.
Morris was hurt in the sixth game, a 49-28 win at Dallas, and left the locker room with his left arm in a sling. The team said he had a chest injury. He was inactive for the past two games. He still leads New England (8-0) with 384 yards on 85 carries after signing as a free agent from Miami.
Kevin Faulk, primarily a third-down back and a solid receiver, has also seen more action since Morris was hurt.
