The Patriots are inside the Dana-Farber Fieldhouse today for practice, and are once again in shells and shorts/sweats.
Colleague Monique Walker reports that the following players were not spotted: Tom Brady, Matt Light, Ras-I Dowling, and Dane Fletcher.
Albert Haynesworth, who was not spotted yesterday, was present during media access today.
Asked this morning about Brady not being present yesterday during the media access window and whether it was just to give the quarterback some rest – he’s taken every snap of the first six games and hadn’t missed a practice before this week – Bill Belichick said he “didn’t know” who was and wasn’t on the field.
“I didn’t take roll so I don’t know,” he said. “The guys who were out there were out there. The ones that weren’t, weren’t. Only on the days when we have to file it, then we’ll file it appropriately. Since yesterday wasn’t one of those days, then some guys were out at the beginning, some guys went in, some guys came out later, and I don’t know.”
