No Light or Taylor at Pats practice

Offensive lineman Matt Light and running back Fred Taylor were the only two players absent from the start of Patriots prctice this afternoon. (Light, who was injured in last week's game against Denver, was spotted in the New England locker room earlier in the day walking without crutches.) The practice was held in full pads on the lower fields behind Gillette Stadium. For more updates, check out our football blog, It Is What It Is.

Wilfork: No more 98-yard drives

FOXBORO — Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork is fully aware of what cost the Patriots the game last Sunday in Denver. The defensive lineman said Thursday he and his teammates need to get off the field and not allow a team to go the length of the field like the Broncos did with their 98-yard march late in the fourth quarter to tie the game before eventually winning, 20-17, in overtime. "That's what we do as a defense, we have to be able to get off the field," Wilfork said. "I don't care if it's by turnovers, or third downs or whatever it may be. We have to get off the field. We can't have teams going 90, 95 yards on us every week to win a ball game. That can't happen."

Bruschi: Seau 'has something left'

Former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi was a guest on the Dale & Holley show on Thursday afternoon. Bruschi was asked if Junior Seau's comeback might inspire a comeback of his own, and he responded with one word: "No." Bruschi went on to say: "When you come back, you want to have a goal. ... We wanted to win [a championship] so badly for [Seau] in 2007. I hope the team can get it for him this year." When asked if Seau could still play at the NFL level, Bruschi responded: "I absolutely believe that he has something left in the tank, but not on an every-down basis. The every-down days for Junior are probably over." If you missed the interview, click here to listen at the Dale & Holley audio on demand page.

Wideman won't make Bruins road trip

WILMINGTON — Bruins defenseman Dennis Wideman didn't practice Thursday afternoon and will miss the two-game road trip to Dallas and Phoenix this weekend while recovering from a left shoulder injury suffered Saturday against the Islanders. B's coach Claude Julien confirmed that Wideman is out for at least the next two games, but said that "as we speak" the club didn't have any plans to bring up reinforcements from AHL Providence to replace the felled blueliner. That could change, but, either way, the B's certainly will miss the puck-moving defenseman who plays upward of 25 minutes per game when healthy.

 

"He's obviously getting better, but not good enough to make the trip," Julien said. "He's going to skate here [in the Boston area] this weekend, and we project that he'll be back for the games after the weekend.

Seau: 'I've got to be ready on Sunday'

FOXBORO — Junior Seau, after one practice, said on Thursday that he intends to be ready to play this Sunday against Tennessee. "It was fun, going out there and taking the steps, getting in the right position, making calls here and there," Seau said of his initial practice on Wednesday without pads. "It was fun. I'm a little sluggish. There are some things I could do better. For the first day, it went well. There's no choice. I've got to be ready on Sunday. I've got to insert myself into being the player I can be and build that into shape, but more importantly be a part of the formula for Sunday. My role is to help this team win. My role is not here to babysit." For more, visit our football blog, It Is What It Is
