Tedy Bruschi has returned to practice just a month after having surgery on his broken wrist.

A smile has replaced the tears on Rodney Harrison's face.

His badly damaged knee is strong again, the drive that made him an intimidating hitter never left and the return to football some doubted would happen is just days away.

Bring on the Bills.

A couple of bits of very important news, especially for Patriots fans, with Harrison looking likely to start and the possibility of Bruschi/Seau seeing time I think the Patriots get back alot of the vocal leadership hey were so short of at various times last year.

Bring on the Bills, indeed. :smile:

Glad to hear the good news. Rodney Harrison defintley plays a pivotal leadership role as well as Bruschi. I love watching Harrison put on a big hit, and I expect to see more of that from him this year!

I'll be interesting to watch Harrison. He was never known for his speed so you can say, hey a little loss in that department won't matter. Or you can say the loss of another step might make him too slow to cover. We'll see. One thing you do know, he'll be out there banging away.

Exactly right.

Another facet of his play which I feel will be a massive influence is his tactical QB'ing of the game from a defensive viewpoint - it was pretty embarrssing last year watching the DB's running around before the snap like so many headless chickens.

Bruschi and Harrison are the glue that holds this defense together.

It was embarrssing. And the defense got a reputaion of being soft. Bruschi and Harrison will stiffen their spine.
