Connolly (concussion) back at Patriots practice

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.

Tom Brady’s annual attempt at making the collective testicles of New England draw up into its stomach has succeeded.

Brady posted on Instagram and Facebook a video (see below) of him skiing somewhere that we aren’t. He approaches a decent-sized jump, hits it, appears to stick the landing, blurts, “Whoa…” and then the camera shows an empty ski and a lifeless body. 

Actually, no lifeless body. Watched it a second time. No lifeless body.

Brady has graduated from sliding down waterslides and cliff-diving to this latest offseason effort to make sure everyone still cares about his safety.  

They do.

Next season, Russian Roulette.

If you french fry when you're supposed to pizza, you're gonna have a bad time! Trust me!!!
