    The Patriots got a bit of good news on Wednesday, with the Boston Herald reporting that left guard Logan Mankins and defensive end Chandler Jones were both back at practice....

    What about Volmer and Connolly? Did anyone see Gronk?

    Beside Hightower and McDonald was anyone else missing?

    Vollmer and Connolly practiced. Gronk was not seen. Vereen was the only other player missing who you didn't mention.

    That is really good news, for sure! You know Mankins has to be foaming from the mouth to get in there and start busting some holes!

    I hope Vollmer can get up to 100% healthy at some point. He just impresses the hell out of me even when he's obviously got health issues.........:cool:

    It's good to see Mankins practicing, since he was in a boot I take it was rather serious and long term. Even if he can't go this week, it's a great sign.

    Jones I'm really hoping can play, from all reports his didn't seem nearly as serious.

    ...and again at practice on Thursday. Nice to see the comments out of the locker room that both guys are preparing to play Monday night. It is much easier to look at the matchups in the trenches, and feel that it will be a pretty even battle.

    I like the Patriots' linebackers and secondary a great deal more than the Texans' who have so many backups and guys who were on practice squads recently at the second and third levels. Their nickle and dime guys are people I've never heard of. If the Patriots offensive line opens holes, the running backs should do some serious damage on Monday night.

    This is one of those games where the tables are turned a little. Keep the Houston offense on the sideline and the Patriots can control the clock and the game. Foster and Schaub can keep the pressure on, but not if they are watching from the bench.

    This one should be a battle.

    I think he'll be back long before the 2nd round. The 49er game next week will mark 4 weeks since the injury so he could very realistically be back by then. Worst case scenario IMO is the following week or final regular season game.

    As long as it's not blocking on extra points. Since we'll have made do without him, we don't need to put him back in.
