Wake-up call: 2nd practice

July, 27, 2013
(Every day of training camp, we'll have a wake-up call that previews the day ahead.)

8:40 a.m. -- Bill Belichick news conference
9-11:30 a.m. -- Practice No. 2 of camp (open to public)
11:30 a.m. -- Player interviews

The practice will be held in light shoulder pads and be similar to Friday's session. The team's early practices are a result of having the Taylor Swift concert at the stadium, with Bill Belichick saying there will be a shift to the afternoon after the weekend.

After a rainy Friday practice, the forecast looks promising for this session -- sunny and in the high 60s/low 70s.

From a media standpoint, we've heard from a lot of players over the last two days. One group that maybe hasn't been focused on as closely is the offensive line, where all five starters return intact. That could be a theme that develops, especially if left guard Logan Mankins -- one of the team's captains -- is available to reporters.
