Patriots’ Marcus Cannon ready for chance to start

FOXBOROUGH — One year older and plenty wiser, Marcus Cannon is expected to make his second start on Sunday for the Patriots, three seasons into his NFL career.

This situation has similarities to the first time Cannon started for the Patriots, Nov. 22, 2012, a Thanksgiving road game against the Jets. Assuming Cannon starts Sunday’s home game with the Steelers, he’ll be filling in for an injured Sebastian Vollmer, just as he did last year.
