Branch not concerned with preseason numbers

Deion Branch isn't worried that he didn't record a catch in the preseason. He has such a close bond with his quarterback Tom Brady, he says their lack of preseason production is nothing to worry about.

When asked what to make of his performance in the Patriots four exhibition games, Branch turned to Brady and asked him, "What do you think, Tom?"

Brady smiled.

"We're good?" Branch asked him. Then he laughed.

"Training camp is training camp," Branch said. "We got a lot of work in during training camp. We're pleased with what we did during training camp and we're looking forward to the season."

Report: Gronkowski put on IR, officially ending his season

The Patriots have placed Rob Gronkowski on injured reserve, officially ending the injured tight end's season, ESPN's Field Yates reported.

The Patriots have added running back D.J. Foster to the 53-man roster. 

Gronkowski underwent surgery on his back Friday in Los Angeles. There was some hope he might be able to return if the Patriots reached the Super Bowl, but this move ends that.

More to come...
