When the New England Patriots offensive line struggled during the first four games of the season it was rookie Bryan Stork who stepped in to solidify that unit. The center of that line will not play in Sunday's AFC title game.The team announced that Stork has been ruled out for the match-up against the Colts with a knee injury. Stork left the divisional win against the Ravens and never returned resulting in a drop in pass protection for Tom Brady. After the injury last week, Ryan Wendell moved form guard to center and Josh Kline took Wendell's place at guard.

Stork's absence is the only major injury concern for the Pats based on the injury report submitted to the league following their practice on Friday. A few players including Dont'a Hightower, Brandon LaFell and Brandon Browner were listed as probable meaning they should will likely be available to play on Sunday.

Remember you can hear the Patriots vs. Colts live on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket as well as the Seahawks vs. Packers with coverage starting at 2pm.

Below is the latest injury report and the thoughts of former Patriots center Dan Koppen on what the loss of Stork means to the offense.
