Sometimes, you’ve just got to aggregate some glorious training camp videos.
The Patriots, by all accounts, had a good couple of days during their joint practices with the Tennessee Titans. Injuries might be a different story, but reports indicate plenty of success between Tom Brady and the Pats’ receivers in competitive drills.
Thursday’s practice reportedly emphasized red zone drills and situational work, which is typical for a Thursday practice during the season. So obviously there were plenty of “touchdowns” thrown. From Mike Reiss’ point of view, Brady was unsurprisingly the best quarterback on the field by far, even with a rash of injuries at wide receiver.
Reporters were allowed to record video of early drills from what appears to be directly behind the end zone. It’s rare to get this good of a view of receivers at work. So without further ado, here’s a rundown of what the Patriots beat reporters in attendance were able to capture in Nashville.

A refresher: Julian Edelman and Demaryius Thomas remain on the NFI/PUP lists, so they haven’t practiced at all in team drills. N’Keal Harry and Phillip Dorsett left early and didn’t participate in competitive sessions. Maurice Harris was absent. So on Thursday Brady was looking at a wide receiver corps of Jakobi Meyers, Braxton Berrios, Dontrelle Inman, Gunner Olszewski, Damoun Patterson, and Ryan Davis.
Apparently, it didn’t affect Brady too badly. The hope, now, is that most of the injured can make it back to full participation for the third week of the preseason.
