The New England Patriots were back at practice, and in full pads, on August 13 following a day off after their blow-out pre-season win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night, and the big news was that Matt Light participated for the first time since signing a new contract.
Light, the starting left tackle and three-time Pro Bowler who was an integral part of New England's three Super Bowl championships, had been on the active/physically unable to perform (PUP) list since re-upping as a free agent. Even though he reportedly did not do much in practice, the fact that he was out there means he is now off the PUP list and recovered from off-season surgery.
The other news was that wide receivers Julian Edelman and Taylor Price didn't take part, and that means they got nicked up in the game. Defensive linemen Albert Haynesworth, Shaun Ellis and Mike Wright, linebacker Brandon Spikes and offensive guard Dan Connolly remain among those not able to practice.
In roster moves, center/guard/long snapper Chris Morris was cut even though the former Oakland Raider and Carolina Panther was signed as a free agent just 10 days ago. Defensive lineman Steve Williams, who by all accounts had little chance to make the roster, was also cut. The Patriots brought in offensive lineman Zach Roth, who played for Texas Christian University.
