Pats practice: Edelman returns

FOXBORO -- Julian Edelman returned to practice on Thursday as the Patriots worked out in full pads on the upper practice fields in preparation for the San Diego Chargers this weekend in Southern California. Edelman missed Wednesday after suffering a concussion on Sunday. 

 

Running back Fred Taylor (toe) and safety Jarrad Page (calf) were the only two players missing from the open portion of Patriots practice.

 

Taylor has missed the last two games since injuring a toe during the game against Buffalo on Sept. 26 at Gillette Stadium.

Neely on D&H: B's will go slow with Seguin

Bruins President Cam Neely joined the Dale & Holley show to talk about the B's as they return to the Garden ice Thursday night for their home opener. Neely talked about the team's plans for rookie Tyler Seguin, why signing Zdeno Chara to a seven-year contract was the right move and his thoughts on the goaltending situation.

 

Neely said the Bruins were in an enviable position with Seguin, the second pick in the draft, because they have so much depth. "You have to be careful with expectations for an 18-year-old regardless of where he goes in the draft," Neely said. "Some can adapt quicker than others, some have the size and strength of an NHL player, some don't. With Tyler, we're taking it very slow, we're taking it very cautious with him. We're certainly in a different position than most second overall picks would be in, they generally are on a team that maybe isn't as deep as what we currently have. We're able to have in...

Chung on NFL edict: 'Can't play any different'

FOXBORO -- The NFL has distributed videos to each team about what will be allowed and what will be subject to a new set of penalties designed to decrease the number of helmet-to-helmet hits around the league. 

 

The Patriots safety, who teams with Brandon Meriweather in various defensive packages, said the new rules and penalties for head shots won't change the way he plays the game since Chung believes they are already being coached the proper and legal way to deliver a hit.. 

 

"We can't play any different," Chung said before Thursday's practice. "We're going to play football, follow the rules and we're going to play football."

 

Chung added that the team hadn't seen the videos from the league yet but added that he's looking forward to watching them and they "should be in soon."

Mannix on D&H: Garnett's still an elite player

Chris Mannix from Sports Illustrated joined Dale & Holley to talk about the Celtics, the Heat and why LeBron James should have kept his Twitter messages to himself. Mannix thinks that Kevin Garnett will have a bounce-back season and put himself back into the mix of elite players in the NBA. "I think that Garnett is a great player, even now," Mannix said. "I think that knee is all the way back. I see him moving on the court a different way than I saw last year. I see him operating with the same skill set and the same tenacity that I saw in that 07-08 year when he was Defensive Player of the Year. I think were going to see, maybe not that exact same Kevin Garnett this year, but a player extremely close to it."

 

Staying with the Celtics, Mannix also thinks that Shaquille O'Neal will be the most important new addition, provided he carves out a role with the second unit. "I don't love Shaq with that first team,"...

Rask expected to start B's home opener
By: DJ Bean

Tuukka Rask was first off the ice in the Bruins' morning skate on Thursday, an indication that he will start the team's home opener against the Capitals at TD Garden. Rask has started just one of the Bruins' first four games this seasons, a 5-2 loss in the season-opener in which he allowed four goals to the Coyotes on 36 shots. 

 

"It's fun," Rask said of starting the home opener. "It's been a while since the last start, so it should be great."

 

Tim Thomas has started the last three games, allowing just two goals over the span and picking up a shutout in the process. The team has won all three of Thomas' starts. For more on the Bruins, visit their team page at weei.com/bruins.
