Good news for Patriots fans as left tackle Matt Light, running back Sammy Morris, and right guard Stephen Neal are back in action for tonight's game against the New Orleans Saints.

Morris had been one of the more productive runningbacks prior to his injury, and his return will definitely be a big boost for the offense.  The bad news is that Sebastian Vollmer will miss tonight's game while still recovering from a "head injury" - which certainly hurts their depth at the offensive line.

Needless to say tonight's game should be interesting - and we'll see if Morris is a factor tonight when the game begins.
