PROBABLE: Virtual certainty that player will be available for normal duty.

NOTES: DL, Richard Seymour was not listed on the injury report for the first time since he was injured against the New York Jets in week 16. Seymour has been gradually working his way back to active duty, and was a question mark in the AFC Championship game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Leading up to the game, it was presumed Seymour would be a gametime decision. According to published reports, Seymour wasn't ready to play, and gametime wouldn't have made much difference.

The longstanding philosphy of Belichick's in one where a player who doesn't practice the week of the game, by Thursday or Friday, they will not play on Sunday.

All other players participated in practice.


At the event known as media day, or maybe more appropriately, a day at the circus, wide receiver Terrell Owens announced to the masses that he will play on Sunday. Expect to see TO suit up for the greatest stage of his life... if for nothing more than a few more moments of attention. On Tuesday the sports channels showed clips of TO during Monday's practice, moving throuhg a drill at what might be considered 1/3 speed. His movements looked deliberate, and cautious, but did not display a sense of compensation for the foot injury he is trying to rehab. Even though TO is listed on the injury report as questionable, he will likely suit up to try to play through the injury.
