Despite injury, Vollmer not expected to miss playoffs

Sebastian Vollmer's injury last Sunday may have yielded a collective groan across New England, but a sigh of relief followed Tuesday.

The seven-year veteran is slated to miss Sunday's season finale against the Miami Dolphins, but he'll likely be back for the postseason, according to CSNNE.com's Tom Curran.

The 31-year-old went down in the first quarter of New England's game against the Jets after he was hit from behind by running back Joey Iosefa.

Vollmer has started 80 of a possible 112 games since being seleceted in the second round of the 2009 draft.
