Patriots to honor Light at halftime


The Patriots will honor retired offensive tackle Matt Light at halftime of their "Monday Night Football" game against the Texans on Dec. 10, the team announced today.

Light played for the Patriots from 2001-2011, and the team held a first-class retirement ceremony for him in May (link here). At the time, Light also revealed publicly that he played his entire NFL career while battling Crohn's disease (link here).

The Patriots produced an excellent video that chronicled Light's career (link here) at the retirement ceremony.
