INJURY UPDATE: Rookie receiver Chad Jackson was added to the Patriots' injury report today. He's questionable with a groin injury, and was reported to have missed at least a portion of team drills. The rest of the injury report remained the same. On the Lions side, offensive tackle Rex Tucker (knee) was placed on injured reserve.
GRAHAM UPDATE: A few emailers were curious for an update regarding the kidney transplant for tight end Daniel Graham's brother, Jason, as detailed in this Boston Globe story. The procedure has been rescheduled for Tuesday.
AFC EAST IN FOCUS: The AFC East has rebounded nicely after a slow start. Consider that the four teams in the division (Patriots, Jets, Dolphins, Bills) combine for a 24-20 record, which is the second best in the NFL, trailing only the AFC West (25-19). Furthermore, the Jets, Dolphins and Bills combine for a 16-17 record, which is tied with the AFC West for the highest winning percentage in the NFL among the teams in 2nd, 3rd and 4th place.
