Shane Vereen returns to Pats practice

FOXBORO -- Rookie running back Shane Vereen returned to Patriots practice on Wednesday for the first time since Aug. 3 as the team continues to get more and more players back from minor injuries. 

New to practice was offensive lineman Mike Berry, a rookie free agent signed Wednesday. Berry, at 6-3, 316 pounds, originally signed with the Patriots on July 27 as a free agent from Auburn and then was released on Aug. 3. Nate Solder, after missing Tuesday, returned on Wednesday, as did safety Josh Barrett and tight end Lee Smith. 

Albert Haynesworth was back on the practice field for a second straight day as the Patriots prepare for the Lions Saturday in Detroit in their third preseason game. 

Missing again was linebacker Brandon Spikes, as were Stevan Ridley, Leigh Bodden, Kevin Faulk, Malcolm Williams, Jeff Tarpinian, Dane Fletcher, Marcus Cannon, Ryan Wendell, Brandon Deaderick, Jermaine Cunningham, Ron Brace and Mike Wright....

Brady on Jets' Super Bowl: 'Heard it' before

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady said Wednesday he's hardly shocked by the latest predictions coming from Jets camp that this will finally be the year the Jets win the Super Bowl.

"The Jets? Yeah, well, we've heard that for a few years so it's always... you don't ever hear us talking too much about that," Brady said with a smile on Wednesday at the press room podium.

"I think there's a long ways to go between now and the regular season. We've got a very important preseason game coming up and all these preseason games are important for us. It's so far away at this point."

The Patriots have outscored their opponents 78-26 in rolling to a 2-0 preseason record so far. They take on Ndamukong Suh and the Detroit Lions this Saturday night at Ford Field in Detroit.

"We've got other things on our mind," Brady added, before being asked if he pays particular attention to the moves the Jets in the offseason.

Caserio: Spikes is 'working hard' in Foxboro

FOXBORO -- Patriots personnel director Nick Caserio said Wednesday that second-year linebacker Brandon Spikes is in Foxboro with the team, attending meetings and working toward a return to the practice field. 

"Brandon is no different than any other player. He's working hard, he's trying to get back out there on the field and when he's ready to practice, he'll be out there," Caserio said of Spikes, who has not practiced since Aug. 5 with a sore ankle. 

"He's here. He's here. He's working. He's in the meetings so he's doing everything we've asked of him."

There was speculation on Tuesday that Spikes had left the team to attend to some personal matter, based on a tweet from his twitter account following the earthquake that hit the eastern seaboard. Spikes tweeted: 

#ThankGod boy I miss that earthquake by 30mins Smhhhh !!!! Yes lord #blessed

Spikes was suspended for the final four games...

Gammons: Cubs job could interest Theo

Hall of Fame baseball reporter Peter Gammons made his weekly appearance on the Mut & Merloni show Wednesday to talk about the Red Sox and other baseball news.

The Cubs recently fired general manager Jim Hendry, and there's been speculation that Red Sox GM Theo Epstein might be willing to listen to an offer.

Said Gammons: "I think he'd have interest. I don't know right now if, with a year to go [on his contract], whether he would. … We're talking about one of the best jobs in baseball."

Added Gammons: "It's a great job. Having gone even longer than the Red Sox without winning, if you win in Chicago, win a World Series in the next six or eight years, that city's yours forever. And that's not the worst city to have as your own fiefdom."

John Lackey's solid performance Tuesday night in Texas may have given him the edge over Erik Bedard in the battle for the No. 3 spot in the Red Sox' rotation, but the former...

Remy on D&C: Sox need to avoid Rangers

NESN Red Sox analyst Jerry Remy made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning, following the Sox' 11-4 victory over the Rangers Tuesday night.

The Red Sox have lost four of the five games they've played at Rangers Ballpark this year. Looking ahead to the postseason, Remy said to keep that in mind.

"It's not a team that you'd really want to face in the first round," he said. "I think that's why it's so important that the Red Sox win the division and stay away from this club. Yes, they've got to face [Justin] Verlander with Detroit if [the Tigers] win it, but the fact is, I think it's a better matchup for the first round than coming down and playing these guys. This is a good ballclub. They went to the World Series last year. They're all as good this year."

The Sox received strong performances from Erik Bedard and John Lackey the last two nights as the two pitchers vie for the No. 3 spot in...
