FOXBOROUGH — Yes, it’s true. Patriots DL Albert Haynesworth was seen at practice this afternoon in full pads.
This will be his first practice since Aug. 4. Only the first 20 minutes of practice is open to the media, so we won’t know how much he practices. But it’s a start.
Other notable returns include RB Danny Woodhead, who has been cleared to practice days after taking a nasty hit in last week’s preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Other players not in full pads or not seen include: RB Stevan Ridley, CB Leigh Bodden, RB Shane Vereen, S Josh Barrett, RB Kevin Faulk, DB Malcolm Williams, RB Eric Kettani, LB Jeff Tarpinian, LB Dane Fletcher, LB Brandon Spikes, OL Marcus Cannon, C Ryan Wendell, DL Brandon Deaderick, OL Nate Solder, TE Lee Smith, LB Jermaine Cunningham, DL Ron Brace and DL Mike Wright.
