FOXBORO -- A good sign for the Patriots as safety Patrick Chung returned to practice on Thursday as he returns from an apparent minor knee injury in last Sunday's win at San Diego.
Running back Fred Taylor (toe), safety Jarrad Page (calf) and defensive lineman Mike Wright (unknown cause) were the only players missing at the open portion of Patriots practice. The team's second practice in preparation for the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday was held outdoors on the upper practice fields in full pads.

The color commentator for Florida Atlantic University football broadcasts, Dave Lamont, was not happy when the FAU quarterback took a hit to the head on Saturday. Lamont proceeded to yell at the officials, scream for the league commissioner and challenge everyone in the Arkansas State press box to a fight. He later apologized.
With that in mind, we've assembled a list of memorable radio play calls from the past few years. There are some famous rants — such as Vikings announcer Paul Allen ripping quarterback Brett Favre in the NFC championship game — and some happier calls, including Chicago's WGN announcers celebrating the Blackhawks' 2010 Stanley Cup championship (once they realized that yes, the puck was indeed in the goal).
Tim Wakefield has been named the winner of the prestigious Roberto Clemente Award, an annual honor, which "combines a dedication to giving back to the community with outstanding skills on the baseball field."

Paul Pierce joined Dale and Holley to talk about the Celtics first two games, whether he would have left Boston if Doc Rivers had not returned and the impact of Shaquille O'Neal both on, and off, the floor. "I love Shaquille in the locker room," Pierce said. "The one guy he’s making better on and off the court is Kevin [Garnett]. You can just tell with Kevin’s attitude, he’s a lot more loose than he’s ever been. Kevin really listens to a lot of things Shaq has to say because they’ve been through their wars together and I know Kevin has a lot of respect for Shaq and what he’s done in this league, as do all of us. His presence has really helped us out as a ballclub, in the locker room and on the court."
Pierce said that Rivers return was the key to bringing the team back for one more run. "It all started with Doc," Pierce said. "I said that if Doc comes back then the...
FOXBORO -- One of the primary Patriots cornerbacks assigned with defending Randy Moss during the star receiver's return to Gillette Stadium admitted Thursday he's not seen any consistent way of defending him on the field.
"I'm not sure," McCourty said of what he's seen on film and in person that is effective defending Moss. "I watched him growing up and when I was in school and nothing seemed to work so we'll just go out there and try to compete."
Told former Patriots cornerback Shawn Springs kept a notebook on star receivers, McCourty was asked what his would read on Moss.
"Just a complete receiver, a guy that's good going down the field, making great catches," McCourty said.
