Nov 26 2014 - Charley Hughlett
  LS Charley Hughlett was re-signed to the Patriots practice squad Wednesday (Nov. 26). The rookie free agent out of Central Florida also spent time with the team this offseason.

Nov 26 2014 - Matthew Slater

Nov 24 2014 - Malcolm Butler

Nov 24 2014 - Dominique Easley

Nov 23 2014 - Tim Wright

Nov 23 2014 - Danny Amendola
  WR/KR Danny Amendola set up New England's second touchdown with a dazzling 81-yard kickoff return in the second quarter. His career-long kick return is 84 yards, for the Rams in 2010.


Nov 23 2014 - Jonas Gray
  RB Jonas Gray went from being a star and on the cover of Sports Illustrated to not playing a down Sunday. The SI cover jinx? He reportedly was sent home from practice after arriving late Friday. Gray dressed Sunday but didn't get in the game. Earlier this season, CB Darrelle Revis was late to practice and was sent home, but he played in the next game. Ah, being a first-year player. "We do what we think's the best, that's what we did today," coach Bill Belichick said. Gray said he was disappointed he didn't play but happy the team got the win. Revis talked to Gray after the game.


Nov 23 2014 - LeGarrette Blount
  RB LeGarrette Blount, who was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers after leaving the field early last Monday night and re-signed by the Patriots on Tuesday, scored on a 3-yard run on his first carry back with his old team. It came on his second play from scrimmage. He went on to score another touchdown and reel off runs of 23 and 33 yards in the second half. Blount gained 78 yards on 12 carries. "It's good to see him back," NT Vince Wilfork said. "You know how we do things around here. He's never been a problem, and I don't see him being a problem for us."


Nov 23 2014 - Tom Brady
  QB Tom Brady, playing on the 14th anniversary of his NFL debut -- also against Detroit, in a late relief role -- threw for 349 yards and two first-half touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Lions. It was his 63rd career 300-yard game, tying him with Dan Marino for six on the all-time list. He also became the sixth NFL quarterback with 7,000 pass attempts. During New England's seven-game winning streak, he has thrown 20 touchdown passes and two interceptions. The pick he threw near the goal line Sunday was only his third career red-zone interception, to go with 120 touchdown passes. Brady relieved Drew Bledsoe at the end of a 34-9 Thanksgiving Day loss at Detroit in 2000. On Sunday, he engineered a 34-9 win over the same franchise.


Nov 23 2014 - Casey Walker
  DT Casey Walker was signed by the Patriots to their practice squad Saturday (Nov. 22). Walker, 24, was signed by the Patriots from the Carolina practice squad on Sept. 27. He originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with Carolina out of Oklahoma on April 30, 2013. The 6-foot-1, 340-pounder spent part of the 2013 season on the Carolina practice squad and went to training camp with Carolina this past summer. He was released on Aug. 30 and signed to the Carolina practice squad on Aug. 31. Walker played in five games with one start for the Patriots and accumulated 10 total tackles and one sack.


Nov 22 2014 - Chandler Jones
  DE Chandler Jones is out of Sunday's game against the Lions with a hip injury.


Nov 22 2014 - Cameron Fleming
  T Cameron Fleming is out of Sunday's game against the Lions with ankle and finger injuries.


Nov 21 2014 - Jonas Gray
  RB Jonas Gray was late for practice Friday and coach Bill Belichick sent him home, following his usual rule.


Nov 20 2014 - Casey Walker
  DT Casey Walker was waived by the Patriots Thursday (Nov. 20). Walker had played in five games with one start since joining the Patriots from the Panthers practice squad in Week 4. Walker was a healthy scratch last Sunday in Indy and could join the team's practice squad if he clears waivers.


Nov 20 2014 - LeGarrette Blount
  RB LeGarrette Blount re-signed with the Patriots Nov. 20, two days after pouting his way out of Pittsburgh. The big back signed with the Steelers this spring after reviving his career in New England last fall when he had 772 yards with a 5-yard average and seven scores on the ground. He had 189 yards and a pair of rushing scores against Buffalo in the 2013 season finale and then notched 166 yards and four ground scores a couple weeks later against the Colts in the divisional playoff. He turned that performance into a two-year, $3.85 million deal with the Steelers that included a $950,000 signing bonus. But he was unhappy with his role with the Steelers, notching just 65 attempts for 266 yards and two scores in the first 11 games while Le'Veon Bell exploded for 195 carries and 951 yards. Blount reportedly left the field early at the conclusion of Pittsburgh's Monday night comeback win in Tennessee that was keyed by Bell's 204 yards rushing and was released the following day. Blount signed a two-year deal with the Patriots reportedly worth up to $2.35 million, though it's for the prorated minimum for the rest of 2014. He was on the practice field in New England on Thursday, interestingly wearing a No. 60 practice jersey. He could be negotiating with safety Don Jones for the No. 29 that Blount wore last season to much success for the Patriots. Blount did not speak with the media, but new teammate and Sports Illustrated cover boy Jonas Gray was happy to welcome the veteran to the New England backfield. "The guys here have nothing but good things to say about him. It's kind of funny, that running back position, they always talk about the camaraderie, so right away, even on the practice field, we acted like we've known each other for a long time," Gray said, just days after his own breakout 201-yard, four-touchdown performance. "I'm excited, man. I think it's going to be something good for us. For a team, what we want to do long-term, when these cold-w


Nov 19 2014 - Tom Brady
  QB Tom Brady continues to be a full participant in practice despite an ankle injury.


Nov 19 2014 - Ryan Wendell
  OL Ryan Wendell was limited in Wednesday's walkthrough because of a knee issue.


Nov 19 2014 - Nate Ebner
  DB Nate Ebner remains limited in practice due to a finger injury.


Nov 19 2014 - Dominique Easley
  DL Dominique Easley continues to be listed as limited due to a knee issue.


Nov 19 2014 - Marcus Cannon
  OL Marcus Cannon was limited in the walkthrough due to a hip injury.


Nov 19 2014 - Cameron Fleming
  OL Cameron Fleming (ankle/finger) did not take part in New England's Wednesday walkthrough. Fleming returned to action as a tackle-eligible blocker against the Colts after missing time to the finger injury. However, he left the second half of the game in Indianapolis with the ankle injury that occurred when a teammate rolled up on his leg.


Nov 19 2014 - Chandler Jones
  DE Chandler Jones (hip) was once again absent from the practice field with the injury suffered in Week 7 against the Jets. He has not practiced or played since.


Nov 19 2014 - Sealver Siliga
  DT Sealver Siliga was on the Patriots' indoor practice field Wednesday for the team's walk through in preparation for Sunday's game against the Lions. Siliga has been on injured reserve with a designation to return with a foot injury since Sept. 27.


Nov 18 2014 - Xavier Grimble
  TE Xavier Grimble was released by the 49ers from their practice squad Tuesday (Nov. 18). Grimble (6-4, 261) was signed to the 49ers practice squad on September 15, 2014.


Nov 18 2014 - LeGarrette Blount
  RB LeGarrette Blount, unhappy with his role as a backup in Pittsburgh, was released by the Steelers on Tuesday. Blount signed a two-year, $3.85 million contract with the Steelers as a free agent on March 28 and played in all 11 games this season. He rushed for 266 yards and two touchdowns on 65 carries and had six receptions for 36 yards. Blount might have sealed his fate when he left the field before the end of the Steelers' 27-24 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Monday night. He appeared only briefly in the game and had no carries for the first time this season. "We believe the decision to release LeGarrette is in the best interest of the organization and wish him the best of luck," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said.


Nov 17 2014 - Cameron Fleming
  OL Cameron Fleming played a major role as an extra blocking tight end against the Colts, but the rookie fourth-round tackle limped off with a lower leg injury after getting rolled up on late in the victory. Fleming had just returned after missing five games to a finger injury.


Nov 17 2014 - Julian Edelman
  WR Julian Edelman missed a few snaps against the Colts after landing hard on his hip on the sideline trying to make a leaping reception. Edelman seemed to have landed on the first-down stick, but returned to finish the game.


Nov 17 2014 - Don Jones
  S Don Jones was a surprising healthy scratch against the Colts. The veteran special teamer had been a key part of the team's success in the kicking game in eight of the first nine games of the year.


Nov 17 2014 - Jordan Devey
  OL Jordan Devey was a healthy scratch in Indy, the third straight week he's been inactive after starting the first four games of the season at right guard.
