Report: Darrelle Revis was sent home Tuesday for showing up late
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis was not allowed to participate in practice and meetings Tuesday after coach Bill Belichick sent him home for the day since Revis arrived late to the team's facility Tuesday morning, three league sources told The Boston Globe.

One source close to the cornerback said Revis accepted responsibility for his actions. He was back at practice Wednesday. The Patriots declined to comment on the situation. The Patriots were not required to put out an injury report for Tuesday or explain any players being absent.

Belichick did not make a huge announcement to the rest of the team about sending Revis home, but one source said, "The message was definitely sent. The rules apply to everybody."

Brady will 'continue to find ways' to get Shane Vereen touches
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Patriots running back Shane Vereen stepped up in a big way Week 7 against the Jets, which was the team's first game without running back Stevan Ridley, who sustained a season-ending knee injury Week 6. Vereen totaled 114 yards (71 receiving) and two touchdowns in a 27-25 win.

Quarterback Tom Brady seems confident Vereen will be able to continue to be a steady presence on offense, per ESPN.

"Yeah, he’s done such a great job for us over the time that he’s been here," Brady said. "I think dependability really sums it up, and he’s really an explosive player for us, too. It’s just trying to continue to find ways to get him the ball because he does a lot of great things when it’s in his hands."

Patriots' Tom Brady working on becoming a more mobile QB
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady acknowledged Wednesday he has to do a better job of using his mobility to extend plays.

"It's never really been something I've been great at, extending plays," Brady said in a press conference at Gillette Stadium, per Boston.com. "I see some of these players -- whether it be Russell Wilson, or Aaron Rodgers, or Jay Cutler does it, Alex Smith does it -- the really mobile quarterbacks that do a great job for their team. Ben Roethlisberger's done it for a lot of years.

"Just trying to understand how I can help our team more. If I can make some more of those plays, I think it would really help our team, so I try to focus on that a little bit. Coaches talk about it. And I think there could be more of those, too. I don't think instinctually it's there for me yet. I'm going to keep working at it."

Brady said he is working on becoming a more mobile quarterback.

"I think there's mental parts and there's physical parts," he said. "The mental part is just to keep working on your leg strength, your ability to move when you need to move, to be able to get away from people. I think for me, it's sometimes more of a mental issue. I joke all the time, I don't have one cell in my body that ever tells me to run. I think I just sit there and kind of go, 'Wow, I've got more time to throw than usual.'"
