Patriots left tackle Matt Light arrived at Gillette Stadium at 7 yesterday morning for another workout. He needed no jolt of caffeine to get going, just a reminder of how his 2005 season ended, with a late September leg injury. "It's been a long time since I've been on the field, so that's motivation," he said. ''It was a rough injury." And it's been a rough road back to health. Light hoped to return to action late last season, but a setback in his rehab kept him on the sideline.
Seven-plus months after suffering the initial injury, having tossed his crutches aside, he believes he's turned an important corner.
this is certainly good news.

Thank goodness. Although we're headed to the dreaded "dead period" for football, training camp will be starting in a little over two months. If we're going to have these guys game one, they'll need to start getting close.

Reiss has more today on Light
Though Matty makes the mistake of referring to himslef in the 3rd person.
