    The players not present for the public portion of the Thursday workout were both CBs, Asante Samuel and Ellis Hobbs along with Ty Warren, Nick Kaczur and Kyle Eckel.

    Samuels and Hobbs were seen to be in the locker room, so there may not be a problem with them. However the absence of Ty and Nick is troubling. Warren has not had an injury, unless he got dinged in the Giants game, but Nick Kaczur has been battling a foot injury. If he can go, the Patriots pass protection and running game get better.

    Of significance I think is that Steve Neal, the starting RG and IMO the best pulling Right Guard in the League, is back at practice. Having him back should help the wide running and passing game. In his absence the Pats have been running inside the tackles pretty much, without much effort at wide sweeps. The number and success of screen passes, a commonly used weapon of the Patriots has seemingly declined as well.

    Its encouraging the TE Kyle Brady a key to the pass blocking and running game at TE is back at practice. Kyle Eckel is a valuable ST player, but his loss is not a major problem.

    It would seem that this Patriots team will only have the loss of Sammy Morris at RB and Rosey Colvin at OLB as they enter the playoffs, much better off than most of their playoff predecessors.

    correct; the Pats are quite healthy and this is very good

    only 3 players (i would add D.Thomas) are 'missing'

    Are the Pats resting Samuel and Hobbs? Why aren't they practicing?

    Their probably just getting time off during the bye week. Heck, BB's given a bunch of players a day off or two during this season.

    That's the million dollar question. When Bethel came in for a workout I wondered if it was to replace Willie as KR.

    Ty Warren was back on the field today.
    Both corners were again out.
    But, still 10 days, and they both finished the game against the Giants.

    Remember when all the rage was the Bronco's line? That group of kneee wackers? This line is better than that ... this line with a healthy Neal and Kaczur is one of the best ever in the NFL ... no doubt in my mind about that. You go back in time and look at the great Steelers & Packers lines and this line is right up there and IMO will be considered great when their run is done.

    I for one wish that all injury lists included IR players. You read dumb statements like "The Broncos have only two starters on the injury report" [without mentioning four more starters on IR]. (fictional example)
