    Didn't Dennard miss some practice last week?

    Anyway -- reading that Ch Jones is back practicing, nothing on Woodhead so I assume he was there too. Outdoor practice; yuck.

    Great to hear Jones is ok. Can't afford to lose him.

    Reis now guesstimating Denard absence due to illness, not injury.

    Dennard was Probable last week with knee/hammy - he was one of the few that stayed on the report when 15 were removed.

    This combined with the fact that Jones was practicing is incredible news. Just sucks that we'll probably never know how close Jones is too full strength until Sunday.

    Woodhead reportedly had a splint on his thumb.

    Dennard not at practice today/possible illness

    https://twitter.com/MikeReiss

    As per mike reiss, Dennard was not present for today's practice. Hopefully it's not anything big because we need him. we all know that. Reiss went on to say that he thinks it could be an illness. God i hope its not the flu, especially with the country wide epidemic thats going on. Hey who knows, maybe he'll have a michael jordan type of game for the patrios like MJ had for the bulls. lol. Just hope he's ready to go.

    P.S. This also means chandler jones is practicing along with woodhead so that's some good news for whoever wanted to know.

    Only two not practicing today:
    Gronk (duh)
    Dennard

    Everyone else is present

    Glad to hear Fells is still in good standing. Hopefully he can help this weekend. When looking at that list of practice award winners, I keep seeing Mallette on that list, that makes me really glad we drafted him. I remember there were concerns about his character prior to the draft, but he's showing he's all business.

    Mallet is probably the one throwing deep balls for our DB's to practice covering.

    Ravens throw more than any other team in the NFL.

    Which is a real benefit, because not many people have strong arms like Mallet and Flacco. Not too many backup QB's can give their CB corps a real Flacco flyball simulation.

    If we didn't have The Hammer I could see Bledsoe getting a call for some red jersey 1099 work this week :)

    As a Patriots fan I hope you're right about Dennard having an awesome game on Sunday.... But as a Jazz fan I really dislike you right now for bringing up the MJ performance. :D

    I'm not worried about Dennard for I think BB is just giving him a little rest to try to get as healthy as possible. IIRC he missed some practice time last week as well but he was ready to go against the Texans.

    What stood out more for me about that report is that Fells won the practice award. Pats are gonna need a good game out of him with Gronk on IR and I think that is a good sign that he's ready to come in and contribute.

    Which reminds me... What's the word on Hawanoo... Hawoonui... Ummm... the other TE? I remember seeing reports that he got a little hurt during the Texans game. Is he ready to go?

    There was one report about him icing his knee after the game - if there was no problem today than it probably looks good

    This is probably where Kamar Aiken comes in useful. Mallet to Aiken over and over and over and over.

    Defend it boys!

    One of his issues is a hamstring and you don't want to put too much unnecessary wear-and-tear on a sensitive hamstring in practice. Game play is different. It's not like they're installing a whole new defensive scheme. The meetings are probably even more important at this point. They're just resting him, I believe.

    re: Dennard, hamstring issues are typically nagging, and take a long time to heal fully. Given that he sustained the injury in the 49ers game, I doubt he's 100%, so it's not surprising that Belichick is giving him as much rest as possible to help with healing and prevent reaggravating the injury. As such, it doesn't really worry me, since I didn't have any real expectation that he'd be 100% recovered by this point anyway.

    To whatever extent the Dennard news is a negative, Chandler Jones being back out there is a much bigger positive. Not sure what to make of Woodhead practicing with a thumb brace. Seems like that could cause issues with ball security, blocking, and catching, so I have a hard time believing that Vereen isn't a better option based on that. Maybe Belichick just wants Woodhead to be available in case Vereen gets hurt?
