AFC East: Tyronne Green

Practice report: Day 3 in Philly

August, 8, 2013
PHILADELPHIA -- The Patriots and Eagles wrapped up their week of joint practices on Thursday, conducting a light workout in helmets and shells with a focus on special teams and situational work.

It was the third joint practice of the week, an experience that both teams seemed to view as productive.

From an attendance standpoint, second-year cornerback Alfonzo Dennard left the field early with strength and conditioning coach Harold Nash. He eventually returned alongside Nash, though he did not participate in drills from that point on. It is unclear the nature of the issue he is dealing with.

The following players were not spotted during the workout: receivers Michael Jenkins and Mark Harrison, cornerback Ras-I Dowling, safety Nate Ebner, tight ends Brandon Ford and Rob Gronkowski, offensive linemen Marcus Cannon, Markus Zusevics, Tyronne Green and Kevin Haslam, and defensive linemen Jermaine Cunningham and Armond Armstead.

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. EST on Friday, the first exhibition game for both teams.
Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC East: Morning take: Time will tell. On paper, Miami should be a playoff contender. But it's going to take good coaching, good health and consistent play for the Dolphins to reach their potential.
  • New England Patriots starting cornerback Alfonzo Dennard was carted off the field after suffering an arm or shoulder injury.
Morning take: This is not good news for New England. Dennard is a good player, and the Patriots need all the cornerback depth they can get. Let's wait and see the extent of the injury.
Morning take: Buffalo is looking for depth at guard and still searching for a replacement after Andy Levitre signed with the Tennessee Titans. Legursky spent time with the Pittsburgh Steelers and has ties to Bills general manager Doug Whaley.
  • Here is some bad news for the New York Jets: Star cornerback Darrelle Revis plans to be ready for Week 1 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Morning take: I don't expect Revis to miss the Bucs' Sept. 8 opener against New York. Trading him provides extra motivation to stick it to his former team. The Jets are in trouble if Revis returns to form.
