Patriots safety Chung among four players ruled out for Sunday

Get ready to see some more wideouts masquerading as defensive back when the New England Patriots visit the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

The Patriots announced Saturday that safety Patrick Chung has been downgraded from questionable to out for the Redskins tilt, along with linebacker Brandon Spikes (knee), guard Dan Connolly (groin) and running back Shane Vereen (hamstring).

It had been hoped that Chung would be able to play for the first time since Week 9. He practiced on a limited basis Friday, but the safety's nagging foot injury will keep him out a fifth straight game.
