Wake-up call: Afternoon practice

August, 2, 2013
(Every day of training camp, we'll have a wake-up call that previews the day ahead.)

2 p.m. -- Bill Belichick news conference
2:20-4:30 p.m. -- Practice (open to public)
4:30 p.m. -- Player interviews

Things to monitor:

1. Cornerback Ras-I Dowling and defensive end Jermaine Cunningham didn't finish Thursday's practice, so do they return Friday?

2. With top right guard Dan Connolly and Marcus Cannon not 100 percent, keeping tabs on the interior offensive linemen. It's a group that isn't as deep as it's been in the past and it makes sense to think that the club will be watching the waiver wire closely.

3. Julian Edelman and how his foot responds to its first practice.
