The Patriots and Dolphins' practice and participation reports for Thursday:
NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
DID NOT PARTICIPATE: CB Marquice Cole (finger).
The Patriots' chances at getting a bye are pretty slim. They need a loss from either the Texans or the Broncos, and neither looks good.
The Patriots secondary came into focus again after Sunday's win over Jacksonville.
Is it time to panic?
If you're Ty Law or Troy Brown, the answer is . . . yes!
Looking at the statistics and the records before today's game between the Patriots and Jaguars, you would figure the Patriots would roll.
