The eighth Matt Light Celebrity Shoot-Out featured a number of current and former Patriots, including Rob Gronkowski, Jerod Mayo, Rob Ninkovich, and offensive linemen Marcus Cannon, Ryan Wendell, and Logan Mankins.
Before the Cardinals game, Belichick said Arizona’s Larry Fitzgerald could wind up as the greatest receiver in NFL history. Fitzgerald was held to one of the worst statistical games of his career, catching one pass for 4 yards. Time for Fitzgerald to return the favor. “Coach Belichick is not the best coach in history for no reason,” Fitzgerald told the team’s website. “He’s done it for a long time. He does a great job defensively. It was good to get out with a win, to be honest.” . . . Belichick also said the team would not provide an injury update on Hernandez until after Wednesday’s practice, when the first injury report of the week is due . . . Brian Fox, the artist from Somerset who created the painting honoring Myra Kraft that was given by the players last season to Patriots owner Robert Kraft, showed off his latest work at Light’s event. It shows Gronkowski spiking the football, and was to be auctioned off to assist the fund-raising.
