Patriots' Dion Lewis: Progressing well
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Although the Patriots continue to take a cautious approach, Lewis (knee) is progressing well in his recovery form a torn ACL, reports.

With training camp still two months away, the Patriots have no incentive to rush Lewis' progress. Having suffered his torn ACL in early November, Lewis will be 10 months removed from the incident by Week 1. If healthy, he figures to again work in tandem with LeGarrette Blount in the New England backfield. Lewis is believed to be on track for the beginning of the regular season.

Patriots' Tom Brady: To file suspension appeal Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Brady and his legal team will file their appeal Monday of the four-game suspension that was reinstated on April 25 for his alleged role in "Deflategate", the Boston Herald reports.

Brady will seek a second hearing by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which will then have to decide by majority vote whether to rehear Brady's case. Should Brady be granted another hearing, he and the NFLPA's legal team are expected to present a case centered around commissioner Roger Goodell's mishandling of the situation, particularly as it regards to the NFL's collective bargaining agreement. Monday marked the last day for Brady to file his appeal, and if the court refuses to rehear the case, Brady could then appeal his four-game suspension to the Supreme Court.

Patriots' Julian Edelman: Still on track for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots are highly optimistic Edelman (foot) will be ready for training camp, CSN New England reports.

Edelman broke his left foot Nov. 15 and missed the rest of the regular season, but he returned for New England's two playoff games, catching 17 passes for 153 yards on a whopping 29 targets. He then had a minor clean-up procedure on his foot during the offseason, and while he was recently spotted wearing a protective boot, the Patriots reportedly aren't too concerned. Assuming he recovers as expected, Edelman could spend a good portion of camp working with Jimmy Garoppolo, who's in line to replace Tom Brady (suspension) for the first four games of the season. Though facing long odds, Brady may file further appeals in an effort to have his suspension overturned or delayed.

Patriots' Danny Amendola: Injury rehab going well
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Though Amendola underwent a procedure on his left knee this offseason and also had bone spurs removed from his ankle, ESPN's Mike Reiss relays that he has been informed that the wideout's ailments have been portrayed as "minor" and "not a long-term" concern.

The report also encouragingly notes that Amendola's rehab "has been on a positive track and he's already moving well." While the wideout's on-field activities figure to be limited as training camp approaches, the ESPN report offers an optimistic angle which suggests that Amendola is on pace to be ready for the start of the coming season. In the meantime, with top wideout Julian Edelman bouncing back from foot woes, the likes of Chris Hogan, Nate Washington, Aaron Dobson, Malcolm Mitchell and Devin Lucien should see added reps during the Patriots' upcoming OTAs and minicamps.

Patriots' Danny Amendola: Bouncing back from offseason procedures
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Amendola (knee/ankle) underwent a pair of procedures early in the offseason that could impact the start of his 2016 campaign, the Boston Herald reports.

At this stage, a timetable for when the wideout might return to full strength has yet to be outlined, though the report suggests there's hope that he might be ready to participate in training camp. One procedure that Amendola underwent addressed a left knee issue, while the other was performed to remove a bone spur in his ankle. Given that he recently restructured his contract with the Patriots, Amendola's roster spot appears secure, but if he's forced to miss any time out of the gate, the likes of Chris Hogan, Nate Washington and rookie Malcolm Mitchell could see added opportunities behind Julian Edelman, who is currently bouncing back from foot woes.
