Patriots open camp Wednesday; first public session Thursday

The Patriots have announced that they will officially open 2011 training camp Wednesday, with the first public practice to be held Thursday.

The time for Thursday’s practice is to be announced.

The team said that the first few practices “will likely be scaled back a bit while the players continue to work toward playing shape.”

But, as the notice concludes, football is officially back in Foxborough.
