FOXBOROUGH -- The locker now belongs to Roderick Rogers.
Christopher Price

This is it. Friday night in Washington is the third preseason game of the year for the Patriots -- traditionally, it’s the preseason game where the starters play the most. It’s the last chance to see a reasonable facsimile of New England’s starting offense and defense in game action before Opening Night against Buffalo Sept. 14.
Christopher Price
08/26/2009 - 9:38pm
FOXBOROUGH -- It’s a simple, three-word phrase that is the overarching theme to everything that Patriots coach Bill Belichick preaches: Do your job.
Christopher Price
08/25/2009 - 6:45pm
FOXBOROUGH -- He can’t help but notice.
Christopher Price
08/24/2009 - 10:42pm
FOXBOROUGH -- This week marks the halfway point of the six-week stretch between the start of training camp and the first regular-season game. Based on what we’ve seen so far, here’s my take on how the Patriots’ 53-man roster will look come Opening Night against the Bills.
Christopher Price
08/23/2009 - 8:20pm
FOXBOROUGH -- Randy Moss has had a lot of adjectives attached to his name over the years: selfish, petulant, mercurial, brilliant.
Christopher Price
08/21/2009 - 2:31am
FOXBOROUGH -- No touchdowns, and no consistent offense. Nine penalties. Tom Brady taking some savage hits from opposing defenders. It was not the sort of night Patriots coach Bill Belichick was hoping for.
Christopher Price
08/20/2009 - 12:22am
A regular-season game between Chad Ochocinco’s Bengals and Bill Belichick’s Patriots would bring a torrent of good-natured trash-talking.
Christopher Price
08/18/2009 - 11:19pm
FOXBOROUGH -- At first glance, it would appear that change is in the air at Gillette Stadium.
Christopher Price
08/17/2009 - 9:14pm
FOXBOROUGH -- He is now, literally and figuratively, the man in the middle.
Christopher Price
08/16/2009 - 11:28pm
FOXBOROUGH -- This summer, Tedy Bruschi sightings have been few and far between.
Christopher Price
08/14/2009 - 2:01am
Tom Brady’s numbers don’t really tell the story.
Christopher Price
08/12/2009 - 8:06pm
In preseason football, wins and losses are incidental. Never was this more deftly illustrated than last season, when the Detroit Lions went 4-0 in the preseason -- and 0-16 in the regular season. The lesson? In the preseason, there are far more important things to watch than the scoreboard.
Christopher Price
08/11/2009 - 7:49pm
FOXBOROUGH -- Patriots quarterback Tom Brady pronounced himself ready to go for Thursday’s preseason contest against the Eagles in Philadelphia, saying he’s “expecting” to see the field for the first time in more than 11 months.
Christopher Price
08/10/2009 - 7:18pm
FOXBOROUGH -- Someone’s hearing footsteps.
Christopher Price
08/09/2009 - 11:43pm
FOXBOROUGH -- They have been liberated.
Christopher Price
08/06/2009 - 10:59pm
FOXBOROUGH -- The Derrick Burgess the Patriots acquired Thursday afternoon isn’t the same player who terrorized opposing quarterbacks in 2005 with a league-high 16 sacks.
Christopher Price
08/06/2009 - 4:43pm
FOXBOROUGH -- Even for a veteran, trying to pick up the nuances of the Patriots’ defense can be a daunting task. But in his first training camp in New England, Leigh Bodden has an ace in the hole.
Christopher Price
08/04/2009 - 10:34pm
FOXBOROUGH -- Sure, Kevin O’Connell and Brian Hoyer are football players. But they’re also human beings.
Christopher Price
08/03/2009 - 8:16pm
FOXBOROUGH -- Julian Edelman has only been a member of the Patriots for three-plus months, but he sounds like he’s well aware as to how they do things at Gillette Stadium.
Christopher Price
08/02/2009 - 10:53pm
FOXBOROUGH -- The band could be breaking up.
Christopher Price
08/02/2009 - 2:35pm
FOXBOROUGH -- Laurence Maroney hears everything.
Christopher Price
07/31/2009 - 8:25pm
FOXBOROUGH -- Despite wild speculation Friday, the only backup quarterback on the New England roster who wore No. 7 all day was Matt Gutierrez.
Christopher Price
07/30/2009 - 9:09pm
FOXBOROUGH -- So Kevin Faulk: Does it look like Tom Brady has changed after taking a year off to rehab his knee and get married? “Same old Tom,” Faulk said. The running back then paused for a moment.
Christopher Price

When training camp opens to the fans and media Thursday morning in Foxborough, they’ll be plenty of stuff to keep an eye on. Here are five body parts I think will demand some extra attention.
