Mike Wright Excited to Move Past Injuries and Play Against Dolphins

FOXBORO, Mass. — Defensive lineman Mike Wright said he's ready to go after missing 15 practices and three preseason games.

Wright, who suffered a season-ending concussion in Week 11 of 2010, returned to the practice field Aug. 30 and recorded a pair of tackles in the preseason finale against the Giants. He's been present on the practice field all week and was not listed on the Patriots' first injury report.

All signs point toward Wright getting back to regular-season action Monday in Miami.

"I feel good," Wright said Friday. "I'm excited to get out there and get in a real [game]. I got out there in that last preseason game, but I'm excited to get in the regular season and start working."
