While the group work was taking place on the West practice field, right next door Steve Gostkowski was showing that he still has a strong leg, attempting three from 60 yards. The first one hit the crossbar. The second fell about 15 yards short before back-up Chris Koepplin raised his two arms in approval on the third, prompting a Washington Redskins “Smurf” style celebration from Gostkowski, holder Zoltan Mesko and snapper Matt Katula.
Also, C Chris Morris gets placed on IR, and Danny Woodhead names his baby daughter Gia.

LT Matt Light only participated in individual drills. He was in one-on-ones for the first time and won his first two in very impressive fashion. He did lose to Andre Carter, but everyone got beat by him. Carter was awesome today.
LB Jeff Tarpinian and OL Zach Roth missed practice for the first time. A total of 21 Patriots were out.
Brady hit Ochocinco perfectly in stride with several deep passes, and Ochocinco made nice catches on both, which would have resulted in touchdowns had it been a game.
The first came on a flea flicker, as running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis threw the handoff back to Brady, who then let it fly, deep down the middle of the field. The play threw the defense off-guard, and a wide-open Ochocinco made the catch.
The other big play the two connected on came as Ochocinco beat cornerback Devin McCourty wide down the right sideline, making somewhat of a diving catch in the end zone.
The two plays captured the highlight of the afternoon.
Perhaps the speculation that Ochocinco will be cut because he dropped a pass or two was a bit premature. . .
One-on-one drill standouts: While OT Matt Light didnt take part in any of the full team drills, he did partake in the individual position drills. He completely stuffed DE Eric Moore on one play and generally looked pretty good in the one-on-ones. DE Andre Carter, meanwhile, completely took rookie Nate Solder to school on one rush. Vince Wilfork pancaked Thomas Austin during his session, while Kyle Love and Myron Pryor also dominated in their individual battles.
More Mallet served up: For the second straight day, rookie quarterback Ryan Mallett once again saw more reps. He was under center for more snaps than Brian Hoyer. What to read into it? Probably nothing more than Mallett is going to see more time against Tampa in Thursdays exhibition game. Malletts work on the practice field, however, continues to be uneven, particularly with regard to his accuracy.

Scott Zolak claims that BB had Mallet rated as the #1 QB in the entire draft.
