Found January 15, 2013 on Patriots Life:
When asked today by the media for an injury update on Patriots' DE Chandler Jones' ankle, Bill Belichick gave a very vague statement that unfortunately didn't say much on Jones' status. From ESPN Boston: "We do the same thing with every player. Any players that are in for treatment yesterday and today, well everybody was in yesterday, but the guys who got treatment yesterday, the guys who came in for treatment today, we'll take a look at them today, take a look at them tomorrow and make a decision as to whether or not we think they can practice.

Belichick, Patriots await Gronkowski update

Patriots coach Bill Belichick is providing no update on injured tight end Rob Gronkowski. Belichick said during a conference call Monday that he had nothing to add to his comments following New England's 41-28 win over the Houston Texans in a divisional playoff game Sunday.

Belichick: End of half a point of emphasis vs. Ravens

The final minutes -- or just minute -- of each half will be at a premium when the New England Patriots host the Baltimore Ravens Sunday in the AFC Championship game. After jumping out to a pretty nice 17-3 lead with just over three minutes to go in the second quarter of a victory over the Houston Texans last week, the Patriots allowed the Texans to score 10 points inside the two...

Patriots Add Former Chiefs OC Brian Daboll To Their Coaching Staff

Right around the time when Bill O’Brien was announced as the next head coach at Penn State last January, Josh McDaniels not so coincidentally made his return to the Patriots’ coaching staff.

Doc Rivers Watched Patriots’ Win Over Texans From Bill Belichick’s Luxury Box, Showed His Superstitious Side

BOSTON — When Doc Rivers leaves the basketball arena or practice court, he passes straight into the realm of fandom.
