Pats practice: Vollmer misses 2nd straight

FOXBORO -- For the second straight day, starting right tackle Sebastian Vollmer was not spotted at the start of Patriots practice Thursday inside Gillette Stadium. 

Vollmer did not play in the preseason finale on Sept. 1 against the Giants but there has been no word on any possible injury he may have sustained. Thursday marks the first day the Patriots are required to release an official injury report. 

The Patriots are light at the tackle position, with Matt Light, rookie Nate Solder and Vollmer the only tackles listed on the depth chart. The team worked out in full pads for the second straight day in preparation for its season-opener Monday night in Miami.

Haynesworth: 'Time for giant to awake'

FOXBORO -- A personable Albert Haynesworth said Thursday he can't wait to show that he's ready to return to his former status as one of the most feared defensive linemen in the NFL. 

He articulated his optimism in a seven-minute chat with reporters at his locker before Thursday's practice. "It's time for me, the sleeping giant, to awake and get back out there on the field and play football again," said Haynesworth, who acknowledged the skepticism in the media about his desire and determination to return to elite status as a nose tackle. "I read what you guys wrote, nothing personal, but I didn't do much in D.C. The scheme didn't fit me and that stuff. Now I can go out there and play get back to what I used to do."

Haynesworth, who was brought to New England in a July trade from Washington, said he has found a new comfort level in Foxboro. "For two years, I was kind of taken out of football a little bit, and now I'm...

Marchand not thinking about sitting out camp
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins forward Brad Marchand was a somewhat surprising attendee at the Bruins' first veterans practice Thursday at Ristuccia Arena. The 23-year-old winger still does not have a contract for the coming season, as negotiations between the team and restricted free agent continue. 

"I'm updated every day," Marchand said of where things stand between the Bruins and his agent, Wade Arnott. "Every day that something happens, I'm updated, so I'm very aware of what's going on, but [Arnott]'s doing everything."

Training camp is set to officially open a week from Saturday. Marchand doesn't know whether he will be under contract then, and though he technically could participate in camp without a deal, he would not indicate whether he plans to take the ice -- and therefore risk being injured without a contract -- or sit out.

"I'm not thinking that far ahead right now," he said. "It's just day to day,...
