The Patriots, plagued by injuries all season, saw yet another key player go down on Sunday.

Offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer was carted off in the first quarter against the New York Jets with a leg injury and quickly ruled out for the game. New England is already without starting wideouts Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola, along with running backs Dion Lewis and LaGarrette Blount.

Here are some other injuries we’re tracking in Week 16:

Matt Hasselbeck | QB, Colts

He was replaced by Charlie Whitehurst in the second quarter against the Dolphins.
