Patriots' Tom Brady: Expected to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brady (suspension) is on track to play in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers, CSN New England reports.

It's unclear whether Brady or Jimmy Garoppolo will start Friday's contest -- or how many series either player will be out there -- but the plan is evidently for Brady to get some live tune-up reps in the Patriots' preseason dress rehearsal. Beyond Friday, we'd expect Brady to be held out of the team's preseason finale, and in such a scenario, his next chance to see game action won't arrive until Week 5 of the regular season due to his impending four-game suspension.

Patriots' D.J. Foster: Looks to secure roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Foster (hamstring), who practiced fully this week, will be looking to make an impression in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Though slowed by his hamstring injury for portions of this summer, Foster had what coach Bill Belichick, called an "encouraging" spring. With the Patriots' top passing back Dion Lewis set to miss time to start the regular season, there is an opportunity for Foster, a player whose skill-set suggests some change-of-pace upside, to make the team's 53-man roster. Power back Tyler Gaffney is another candidate to claim the Patriots' fourth (and likely final) running back spot behind LeGarrette Blount, James White and Brandon Bolden.

Patriots' Jimmy Garoppolo: Expected to start Friday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garoppolo is expected to start Friday's preseason game against Carolina, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Tom Brady (suspension) will also get playing time, with he and Garoppolo presumably splitting first-team work. Although this will likely be Brady's only appearance of the preseason, it won't be surprising if Garoppolo gets more snaps, as the Patriots have made sure to get their third-year quarterback plenty of reps as he prepares for a four-game stint as the starter to open the regular season.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Will be held out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gronkowski will be held out of Friday's preseason game against the Panthers, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

The Patriots' star tight end was able to return to the practice field earlier in the week, but they'll be taking the cautious route with Gronkowski on Friday by keeping him on the sidelines. Given that it's rare to see starters take the field in the preseason's final week, we may not see Gronkowski in uniform until the Patriots kick off their regular season. New England figures to give plenty of snaps to Martellus Bennett on Friday, but reserves like A.J. Derby and Clay Harbor should see playing time as well.

Patriots' Alan Branch: Reinstated from suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Branch was reinstated from his team suspension on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN.com reports.

Branch reportedly picked up the suspension for a violation of team rules, although specifics were never released. After nearly a week of being on suspension, the Patriots opted to reinstate him Thursday, which means he should take on his normal role as a key contributor on the defensive line. Branch is coming off a 2015 campaign where he posted 35 tackles, one sack and two forced fumbles.
