Wake-up call: Offense to rebound?


(Every day of training camp, we'll have a wake-up call that previews the day ahead.)

1:30-4 p.m. ET -- Practice No. 5

4 p.m. -- Player interviews

After opening camp with three straight practices at 9 a.m., then holding Monday night's season-ticket-holder workout, the Patriots are now shifting things to an afternoon schedule.

One area we'll be watching for today is how the offense rebounds after a shaky Monday night practice (story here).

It's still early in camp, and there are bound to be some growing pains as quarterback Tom Brady breaks in almost an entirely new group of pass-catchers. No reason to sound any alarms.

With a day off scheduled for Wednesday, the offense will look to regain some of the momentum it had generated earlier in camp before the one-day break.
