For the first of three consecutive Thursdays, the Patriots will allow media access to an organized team activity today (no public access).
Here is a look at Thursday's schedule:
10:45 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. -- Media availability at practice (training camp/upper grass fields)
Approx. 11:15 a.m. -- News cameras will be shut off during team drills
Approx. 12:30 p.m. -- Player availability (on the game field weather permitting)
2 p.m. - 3 p.m. -- Mike Reiss' weekly Patriots chat (rescheduled from noon)
Players expected to speak to reporters after practice include receiver Brandon Lloyd, center Dan Koppen, cornerbacks Devin McCourty and Kyle Arrington, and linebacker Rob Ninkovich.
ESPNBoston.com will have you covered throughout the day with observations from the 90-minute practice; however, the Patriots ask reporters to cooperate with the following rules:
Please do not report on offensive or defensive strategy. This includes describing formations, personnel groups or non-conventional plays.
Please do not quote, paraphrase or report the comments made by coaches or players during a practice session.
Please do not report on practice until the practice session is over.
Per league policy, on days when the practice session is open to the public, media are allowed to report during practice on “newsworthy events, such as VIP visitors to practice, exceptional catches, standout rookie performers, etc.”
