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

4:30 p.m. ET -- Ty Law Patriots Hall of Fame induction
7 p.m. -- In-stadium practice for season-ticket-holders and Foxborough residents
approx. 9 p.m. -- Player interviews

Law's induction will draw several of his former teammates, including Lawyer Milloy, Rodney Harrison and Otis Smith. Milloy posted a picture to Instagram about taking a red-eye flight to Boston. With a promising weather forecast, and Law's popularity, a big-time crowd is expected for the induction which is free to the public and takes place in the plaza outside the team's Hall of Fame.

As for practice, this is the eighth overall session of training camp. The Patriots have had two practices in light shoulder pads and helmets and five in full pads. There was one day off.

Here are a few storylines we'll be following today:

1. Cornerback Darrelle Revis, who is expected to speak with reporters, and his success in practice.

2. The defense, which has mostly had the upper hand in practice, continuing its momentum.

3. Monitoring the shuffle at center and right guard, two of the top competitions in training camp as multiple players are getting reps.

4. With an in-stadium practice that should feature plenty of special teams, a check-in with the specialists -- kicker Stephen Gostkowski, punter Ryan Allen and snappers Danny Aiken and Tyler Ott -- as well as the returners.
