In two days, the 2015 NFL season will be kicked off at Gillette Stadium when the New England Patriots will play the Pittsburgh Steelers to fight for their first win of the new year. Today, we learned who might not be part of this fight.

The team has released it's newest injury report today and it looks like yesterday's. Per Mark Daniels, here it is:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="de"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Today&#39;s Patriots practice report is the same as yesterday. <a href="http://t.co/qTJLSpXp2Z">pic.twitter.com/qTJLSpXp2Z</a></p>&mdash; Mark Daniels (@MarkDanielsPJ) <a href="https://twitter.com/MarkDanielsPJ/status/641341433857728515">September 8, 2015</a></blockquote>

The big name on the list, just like yesterday, is Bryan Stork. The Patriots' starting center has missed his third straight practice session due to a concussion. It looks highly unlikely that he will be active for the season opener. In his place, recently voted team captain Ryan Wendell looks like the favorite to start.

However, the veteran has missed most of training and three of four preseason games and might not yet be ready to play an entire competitive game. Thus, undrafted rookie center David Andrews or three-year veteran Josh Kline might get thrown into the spotlight. Anyway, a situation worth monitoring (for more on it, click here).

Tavon Wilson again practiced in a limited role and might be a game-time decision on Thursday, while Travaris Cadet and Trey Flowers look good to go.
