Quarterback Tom Brady is expected to make his preseason debut. Several other starters are expected to play as well, as the third preseason game is generally regarded as a dress rehearsal for the regular season.

After two weeks of being on the road for joint practices in Detroit and Nashville, the Patriots are happy to be home where they’ll remain for the next three weeks.

With the regular season fast approaching, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick will continue to monitor several positional battles including at receiver.

With the additions of Josh Gordon and Demaryius Thomas to the active roster, there is a log jam at the position.
