|Aug 11 2014 - Brian Tyms|
WR Brian Tyms is facing a four-game suspension after testing positive for a banned substance, according to CSNNE.com.
The NFL does not reveal the substance, but Tyms said it was Adderall.
"I've had a prescription for it since I was 9," he said. "It costs money to get all that stuff situated. Money which I didn't have to spend. It was my fault. I should have brought it to the NFL and said, 'Hey, I take this from time to time before it got to that point.' But it wasn't like I'm using it as something to boost my ratings. I've been taking it since I was 9. That and Ritalin. I can't worry about that. I put that in God's hands. I just come out and try to play to get on this team."
If Tyms makes the 53-man roster, he will not be allowed to practice with the team for the first four weeks of the regular season. He made five catches for 119 yards in the Patriots' exhibition opener Thursday, a 23-6 loss to the Washington Redskins.
|Aug 11 2014 - James Anderson|

QB Ryan Mallett was absent from the practice field as the Patriots returned to workouts for the first time since the preseason opener. Bill Belichick would not comment on his backup's health, only saying that there were a lot of players in "different physical situations," indicating it's likely an injury. Mallett missed time this spring with a knee problem.
|Aug 10 2014 - Zach Moore|
DL Zach Moore is a rookie, sixth-round pick out of Division II Concordia. He's seen action all along the defensive line in his first NFL training camp, and so far is working to overcome what Bill Belichick acknowledges is a clear big jump in competition.
"He would have one of the biggest, no question, one of the biggest (jumps),"Belichick said. "He's been out here every day, works hard. We've got a long way to go, but [he's] getting better. He works on a lot of little things, he's in good condition, he's taken a lot of reps and he'll need to take a lot more, but he's making progress. Works hard. No issues, just a long way to go."
|Aug 10 2014 - Rob Gronkowski|
TE Rob Gronkowski remained in New England last week while the Patriots took part in joint practices with the Redskins leading up to the teams' preseason opener in Washington. He was back on the practice field on Sunday in Foxborough, doing his usual drills and work to the side with Tom Brady but refraining from any team action or contact work.
Afterwards the Pro Bowler discussed his health status as he returns from last December's torn ACL and how he spent the week away from his teammates.
"Just a little time off to let the knee heal a little bit more. You know, you can't always be grinding on it 24/7 off an injury. You have to let it heal," Gronkowski explained. "I'm feeling better since the time off, so, it's going well. My body kind of needed it, my knee needed it, that rest, when they went to Virginia. It was good progress."
Gronkowski said he's not had any setbacks in his recovery and that he's "getting better every day."
"I'm going full-speed in the drills I'm doing, but they're just limiting the drills I can do," Gronkowski said of spending a lot of 1-on-1 time against Darrelle Revis. "Most likely, when I'm cleared for contact, it will be full-go, too."
|Aug 9 2014 - Rob Gronkowski|

|Aug 9 2014 - Sealver Siliga|
DT Sealver Siliga suffered a left hand injury in joint practice action with the Redskins on Aug. 5 in Richmond, Va.

He was seen wearing a cast on the hand and is expected to miss extended time to the injury.
|Aug 9 2014 - Chris Jones|
DT Chris Jones limped off with a left ankle injury in the preseason opener against the Redskins. The second-year player had been having a solid camp after posting 5.5 sacks as a rookie a year ago.

LB Deontae Skinner passed his physical and was cleared for pracrtice Aug. 3.
|Aug 5 2014 - James Morris|

|Aug 5 2014 - Matthew Slater|
WR Matthew Slater also remains a limited participant in practice for the Patriots despite having been removed from the PUP list. The veteran special teams captain spends most of his practice time running on his own and not taking part in team dills in the kicking game.
|Aug 5 2014 - Alfonzo Dennard|
CB Alfonzo Dennard was removed from PUP after a week of camp, but has yet to take part in full contact or team practice action. The returning third-year cornerback continues to work some drills but also spend a lot of time working with the New England rehab staff as he comes back from offseason shoulder surgery.
|Aug 5 2014 - Michael Hoomanawanui|
TE Michael Hoomanawanui was not a part of the Patriots work against the Redskins as the veteran tight end continues to miss time with a leg injury. With Gronkowski and Hoomanawanui out of action the tight end depth chart remains extremely thin with the likes of journeyman D.J. Williams and undrafted rookie Justin Jones taking the bulk of the reps.
|Aug 5 2014 - Brandon Bolden|
RB Brandon Bolden was absent from the practice fields in Richmond, continuing to miss time with an unknown injury.
|Aug 5 2014 - Rob Gronkowski|
TE Rob Gronkowski did not make the trip to Richmond with the Patriots for the joint practices with the Redskins. The Pro Bowler has practiced on a limited basis early in camp and has yet to take part in team drills or any contact action. Since those two areas are the backbone of joint practices, it's not surprising that Gronkowski remained in Foxborough to continue to work back from the torn ACL suffered last December.
|Aug 5 2014 - Jerel Worthy|
DE Jerel Worthy remains on the non-football injury list. The third-year player has been recovering from surgery on his lower back in the spring.
|Aug 5 2014 - Matthew Slater|
WR Matthew Slater passed his physical July 31 and was cleared for practice.
|Jul 30 2014 - Jerel Worthy|
DE Jerel Worthy said Wednesday he is hopeful of getting back on the field soon as he completes his recovery from surgery on his lower back in April. The third-year player hurt his back while training early in the offseason. The injury and subsequent surgery kept him from participating in the team's spring workouts, and he started training camp on the non-football injury list.
|Jul 30 2014 - Rob Gronkowski|
TE Rob Gronkowski continues to take a cautious road in his return from a torn ACL suffered last December. The Pro Bowler was cleared to practice to start camp but has yet to take part in any team action or contact drills.
"The side work is going good, I'm getting used to everything I can do," Gronkowski said after Tuesday's practice. "Doing conditioning, which is my number one factor right now, that's what I can work out to the max -- running around and getting my body used to everything. Working individually, listening to my coaches and getting my individual routes and blocking down to the best of my ability."
|Jul 30 2014 - Josh Boyce|
WR Josh Boyce was absent from the practice field July 30 after limping off with a right knee injury one day earlier. The second-year former fourth-round pick started three of nine games played a year ago, playing catch-up after missing time last summer with a foot injury. It's certainly not ideal for him to mass time again as he tries to compete and stand out in a very unsettled young group of receivers.
|Jul 30 2014 - Tyler Gaffney|
RB Tyler Gaffney was claimed off waivers July 28, after suffering a season-ending knee injury with the Panthers. The rookie was a sixth-round pick out of Stanford and could be interesting young competition in the New England backfield moving forward given that both Steven Ridley and Shane Vereen are set to be free agents next spring.
|Jul 30 2014 - Dax Swanson|
DB Daxton Swanson, a first-year player out of Sam Houston State, returned to practice July 29 after missing start of camp while away from the team dealing with the death of his father.
