FOXBORO -- Dan Connolly had been sidelined with a concussion since the second half of the Patriots' win over the Titans, but he was back at practice Thursday. He and the rest of his teammates were in full pads for the session.
Earlier this week Patriots Insider Tom E. Curran reported Connolly had a concussion that was mild enough that the guard wasn't expected to miss much time.
If Connolly is made available for Sunday's game it would be a boost for the Patriots interior offensive line, which spoke today of the challenges the Cardinals present both with their blitzes and their athletic defensive linemen.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Seattle's Stephen Hauschka and Arizona's Chandler Catanzaro missed short field goals that would have won the game in overtime and the Seahawks and Cardinals settled for a 6-6 tie Sunday night.
Hauschka's 27-yard field goal was wide left with seven seconds left after Catanzaro's 24-yarder bounced off the left upright.
The tie was the Cardinals' first since Dec. 7, 1986, a 10-10 draw at Philadelphia when the franchise was based in St. Louis. It was the first for the Seattle since entering the NFL in 1976.
