Patriots

Although the Patriots have already started making cuts to their preseason roster (Maurice Harris, Mike Pennel), the major blood-letting will happen Saturday, when all teams have to cut their rosters down to 53 players.

And while many players know they've got their roster spots already secured, a host of others know they're at risk entering New England's final preseason game.

Their backup offensive linemen can't feel too comfortable after the team traded for not one, but two o-linemen Wednesday, acquiring Korey Cunningham from the Cardinals and Jermaine Eluemunor from the Ravens.

How could those moves affect the Patriots' 53-man roster, and which players, in particular, should feel nervous with cutdown day looming?
