Quick hits from locker room
By Mike Reiss
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Quick hits from the media-access period in the locker room today (2:20-3:45 p.m.):
1. Players drawing larger media crowds included OL Matt Light and DL Alex Silvestro. Long snapper Danny Aiken and G Donald Thomas also were spotted talking with reporters in a smaller setting. The health of Light's injured ankle was the hot topic of discussion, with Light reporting it was feeling better. Silvestro was asked about his promotion from the practice squad last Friday and making his NFL debut against the Dolphins.
2. Light also touched on the post-game presentation to owner Robert Kraft. This was the first chance for reporters to follow up with Light since the game.
3. Although out for the season with a hamstring injury, Jermaine Cunningham is still going through meetings. He entered the locker room with the team's linebackers after a meeting presumably broke.
4. Players went through meetings today and will return to the practice tomorrow. They said today was a day to go over corrections from the Dolphins game, while also turning the page to the Bills and getting familiar with them, as there are significant changes since Week 3.
5. Left guard Donald Thomas, who started Saturday, said he didn't feel as good about his performance after watching the film as he did after the game. He talked about getting back to work and improving.
