OBrien addressed the media prior to Fridays afternoonpractice at Gillette Stadium, and gave an update on Gostkowski, whos workingto get back from quad surgery.

As of right now, he has no limitations.

Were going to take Stephen day-to-day, said OBrien. Heslike everybody else. Hes going out there. Hes working on his technique. Wevehad him in team drills. Hes getting a feel for himself. Hes evaluatinghimself. Were evaluating him when hes out there. Like everybody else, weregoing day-to-day.

He has no limitations. Hes going through his schedule.Hes going out every day, theres a certain number of kicks that he wouldnormally do. Every specialist tries to get a number of quality kicks after theywarm up, which requires a lot of other kicks, just to get ready to perform.Hes at his numbers, and hes increasing that like he would any time.
