The Boston Herald is reporting that according to sources, Bruschi injured the scaphoid bone in his wrist which could take at least six weeks to heal if surgery is required.
After suffering a season ending injury last year against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Patriots' starting safety Rodney Harrison made his return to the practice field. Harrison helped bring a ‘bad' attitude to the Patriot's defense. "He's a warrior - everybody knows that," Patriots defensive back Randall Gay said. "You can just tell by how he plays on the field... I was watching at home when he hurt (his knee) and I said, ‘If anybody can come back from that, it's Rodney Harrison.' I'm waiting for the day he steps on the field (for a game)."
Patriots defensive back Randall Gay, also known as "Blue" took over during the 2004 season when cornerback Ty Law went down with a broken foot. The Providence Journal reports that during 15 games in Gay's rookie season, he had 34 tackles and 2 interceptions. The next season Gay was sidelined with an unusual ankle injury. Now that the ankle has mended, Gay is looking forward to getting his old playing form back.
Cornerback Ellis Hobbs has been on the left side of the field during training camp. This could mean that the Patriots intend to start Hobbs at the left cornerback position, the same position that Ty Law played. The left side of the field is often reserved for the strongest cornerbacks.
The New England Patriots have signed free agent wide receiver Eddie Berlin. His addition will help bolster the deleted ranks of wide receiver.
