It was another two-a-day for the Patriots, though this afternoon workout was a little easier than most of them. Coach Bill Belichick ordered another walkthrough, allowing the players some rest during a tough stretch.
“It doesn’t feel like Day 7,” cornerback Terrence Wheatley said. “It feels like Day 30. But you got to grind it out.”
Mostly this afternoon, it was just a mental session, with players going through the motions of plays and making sure they were on the same page in their brains. Or something.
It is worth noting that many of the injured players were present and accounted for, including Tedy Bruschi, Richard Seymour, Ty Warren, Jonathan Wilhite, Ben Watson, and others. No casts or slings were visible. And quarterback Tom Brady didn’t wear his brace.
