The Patriots held their fifth straight day of practice Tuesday, and now will get a much-needed day off. Rookie receiver Aaron Dobson, who has been playing with the first unit, did not practice and appeared to be favoring his right leg when watching from the sideline. And tempers started to run a little hot at the end of practice with Stevan Ridley and Kyle Arrington getting into a little skirmish. Arrington popped Ridley at the end of a run, Ridley threw the ball at Arrington, and the two had to be separated.
Tuesday’s practice was limited contact, with a lot of work in the red zone and at the goal line. Still haven’t seen much OL-DL work.
