Insight: Simply incredible. A whopping three Patriots defensive starters have been lost to season-ending injuries in the last month (Vince Wilfork, Jerod Mayo and Kelly). Chris Jones and Joe Vellano figure to split time at defensive tackle while Kelly is out.

Description: Patriots defensive tackle Tommy Kelly missed practice again Friday and is not expected to play this week.
Insight: Added to the already gone Vince Wilfork, the Pats could be vulnerable to the run up the middle. Of course, playing the New Orleans Saints thie weekend means they will see Drew Brees fading back to pass more often than Pierre Thomas or Darren Sproles running through the line.
