Patriots OLT Matt Light, who was not on Friday's injury report, is inactive for Saturday's game against Miami. Per NFL Network's Albert Breer, Light's ankle flared up Saturday morning.

Rookie Nate Solder, who has started at right tackle most of the season, is expected to start at left tackle, with rookie Marcus Cannon starting on the right side.

S Patrick Chung and ILB Brandon Spikes remain out. There was hope Chung would return this week, and there were some reports that Spikes could go as well.

The way we see it

The Dolphins' edge rushers will give the Patriots' rookie tackles quite the test on Saturday as they try to protect Tom Brady. On defense, the Patriots have won games without Chung and Spikes, but are still giving up lots of yards and points. Both would have helped in covering Dolphins RB Reggie Bush.
