Jack Jones’ absence hurts. Puts pressure on the secondary.
The best rotation is probably Gonzalez and Jack Jones outside with Jon Jones inside.
Now Jon Jones is presumably outside with Wade or Marcus Jones inside.

The only place where the ceremony will be available live and in its entirety is a live stream on Patriots.com. Ch. 4, which has the television broadcast of the 4:25 p.m. game, had been hoping to show the Brady tribute in full and had put in a request with CBS in New York to do so, but it could not be arranged.

The Patriots have kept specifics about the ceremony close to the vest, but the team announced that they will stream the ceremonies with Brady live on Patriots.com at halftime of the game.

Stevenson's illness has me wondering: what are the COVID protocols for the NFL now?

If there's still a 5-day or 10-day or test result protocol in place, a lot of teams will be missing players throughout the year (not saying Stevenson has COVID, just wondering).

Because the newest variants of COVID are pretty much unprotected from infection, though far less lethal for those who have built a system respinse and much more treatable with the new medication(s).

Big question now is who gets cut/waived?

Also, feels like Ferentz/Montgomery are the front runners now for PS elevation.

Is this where we tell all the Zappe naysayers "I told you so?"

Corral probably ends up back on the practice squad.

I wonder if this is a sign that BB's willingness to cut a player and bring in a backup lit a fire under Zappe's butt and that he showed enough improvement in these past nine days that the coaching staff thought he was worthy of the backup job? Or did Corral just not impress at all?

This team has more bad luck with injuries. Here they are, the last day of practice and lose a starting corner for 4 games.

Or did they know that Zappe was much better positioned to be the backup FOR NOW and Corral needed some time.

He’s not making it back to PS.
Arizona would be crazy not to claim him,
If he does BB rolled the dice and won.
Why not release a jag ol nobody is claiming them.
