All Patriots players present for practice

FOXBORO -- All Patriots were present for Thursday's "sweats and shells" practice inside the bubble, on a rainy day at Gillette Stadium.

Defensive tackle Kyle Love, who missed Wednesday's practice for non-injury related reasons, was back on the field.

The Pats had 15 players with "limited participation" on Wednesday, one of whom was offensive lineman Logan Mankins.

Bill Belichick was asked about Mankins' health (knee) before Thursday's practice, and he seemed optimistic about all of his banged up players.

"I think we've seen progress out of everybody," said Belichick. "All the guys are out there working. I think each one of them is making progress. We'll see how things go here, after stringing these days together. We'll probably have some game-time decisions. But definitely, a lot of these guys are close. And we're getting better."
When the practice report was released, four players who were listed as limited on Wednesday (and who, indeed, had been on the practice report for weeks) -- Patrick Chung, Julian Edelman, Matt Light and Devin McCourty -- were not only taken off the limited list, but off the practice report completely. None of the four was listed as having an injury, which can only be interpreted as meaning all are now healthy.
However, offensive lineman Marcus Cannon (ankle) was added to the list as a limited participant.

Royer's late goal rallies Red Bulls past Revolution, 2-1

HARRISON, N.J. - Daniel Royer finished a nice sequence in the 74th minute, Luis Robles made a diving save in the closing minutes and the New York Red Bulls rallied to beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Saturday night.

Felipe sent the ball left to Kemar Lawrence alongside the box and he put a cross to Royer on the back post for an easy finish on his fourth goal.

Robles, who only allowed Lee Nguyen's penalty kick in the ninth minute, preserved the win with his fourth save, diving to his left to block Diego Fagundez's shot from outside the box.

Bradley Wright-Phillips tied it for New York (6-6-2), which was winless in its last four matches, when he pounced on a loose ball and backheeled it into the net. New England goalkeeper Cody Cropper had pounced on a cross by Kemar Lawance, but Cropper could hold on and Wright-Phillips was there to clean up for his sixth goal.

Damien Perrinelle fouled Fagundez in the penalty area after a great pass from Kei Kamara, allowing Nguyen to step up for his sixth goal. New England (4-5-4) had won two straight and lost just one of its previous six. It is 0-5-2 on the road.
