Sammy Morris, Matt Light, Dan Koppen Among Patriots Returning to Practice


Nov 13, 2009

The Patriots' injury report has been pretty full lately, but on Friday the team welcomed back six players that had been out on Thursday, the Boston Herald's Ian Rapoport reported.

Those returning to the practice field include running back Sammy Morris (knee), left tackle Matt Light (knee), center Dan Koppen (knee), wide receiver Julian Edelman (arm), safety Brandon Meriweather (foot) and linebacker Eric Alexander (groin), according to the report.

Morris hasn't practiced since injuring his knee in the Patriots' 59-0 win on Oct. 18, and Light hasn't practiced since injuring his knee in the Patriots' 20-17 overtime loss on Oct. 11. Edelman broke his arm in the 59-0 game, while Koppen suffered his injury last week against the Dolphins.

It is still unknown who is expected to return to game action this Sunday, but there's no question the Patriots appear to be in a much better position on Friday in terms of health than they were on Thursday.

The practice was held indoors with speakers blasting noise, in preparation for the noisy environment on Sunday night, Mike Reiss of reported.
