Social Media Sights and Sounds From Day Twelve Of Patriots Training CampEric Canha-USA TODAY Sports

After a three-day break following the preseason opener against the New York Giants, the Patriots returned to the Foxborough practice fields on Monday in preparation for joint sessions and a game with the Carolina Panthers. 

The morning practice had a light feel as all players were in shorts and shells with only 11-on-11s occurring. Full pads will return Tuesday and Wednesday with the Panthers. 

Absent players included CB Malcolm Butler, ST Cody Davis, CB Joejuan Williams, OL Bill Murray, OL Andrew Stueber, OT Justin Herron, and OT Isaiah Wynn. Tight End Dalton Keene was limited. 

On offense, Mac Jones completed 23 of 30 passes with an interception, Brian Hoyer went 9-for-19, and Bailey Zappe was 9-of-12 during 11-on-11s. 

Nelson Agholor continued his strong summer, recording two one-handed touchdowns on Jonathan Jones and Jalen Mills. Whether or not he remains a Patriot by week one remains to be seen, as trade rumors involving his name and moving his current salary continue to pop up. 

Additionally, receiver rookie Tyqan Underwood continues to impress after catching a touchdown pass in the corner of the end zone from Bailey Zappe with Jack Jones in coverage. 

As for the defense, Henry Anderson and LaBryan Ray each recorded a sack. Jack Jones forced a pass breakup. 

Prior to practice, head coach Bill Belichick offered some high praise for Ja’Whaun Bentley, who is entering his fifth season. 

“Ja’Whaun’s got great leadership ability, I think you saw that all the way — however far you want to go back — but even going back to DeMatha, high school, and his role there and some of the things we talk about in high school, then of course at Purdue,” Bill Belichick said. “… He’s really come in and grown from his rookie year. He’s had a very strong voice, but not overpowering. But he has really good leadership. Each year it’s gotten better.”

Bentley signed a two-year contract to remain with the Patriots back in March.

The Patriots will welcome the Panthers in for two joint practices, each open to the public on Tuesday and Wednesday at 9:30 am before their 7:00 pm game on Friday.  NOTE: Those dates will be the last public practice sessions of the summer.
