Hey all --
The Patriots are holding a rare Monday practice today, as the team re-assembled after their five-day bye week break. The session is being held inside Gillette Stadium.
Troy Brown was in a practice uniform for the first time this season, and number 80 resumed his usual spot in the stretching "formation" -- on the front line of the offense, right next to Tom Brady.
Missing from practice today were Mel Mitchell, Eugene Wilson and Eric Alexander.
The practice players of the week are: Ray Ventrone, C.J. Jones, Kelley Washington and Rashad Baker.
Locker room access has been bumped back to 3:45 p.m.; we'll try to post an update after that.

Hey all -
As previously posted, Eddie Jackson and Chad Jackson were on the field with their teammates for practice today, meaning the Patriots have opened the 21-day window for both.
Within the next three weeks, the two players can practice and the team must decide by the end whether to activate the players (and make a corresponding move) or place them on season-ending IR.
Also at practice, held in shorts and shells, Benjamin Watson, Sammy Morris, Mel Mitchell and Eric Alexander were missing, and tackle Wesley Britt made his return after a week tending to personal issues.
Marcellus Rivers, Pierre Woods and C.J. Jones were all in black jerseys for being named practice players of the week.
It is the second consecutive black jersey and third of the season for Jones, a practice squad receiver.
