The Patriots weren’t done announcing news related to their beleaguered secondary. Not for tonight anyway.
The team just announced, at this late hour, that safety Josh Barrett has been downgraded to out. The sometime starter has battled a thumb and hamstring injury for the past several weeks. This is another blow to a secondary that has had its share of issues.
In the past few days...
For the final time during a loooooong week, Patriots coach Bill Belichick discussed facing the Steelers and other assorted issues heading into the week. And there are a few, with health news lingering and the Physically Unable to Perform list guys still out there.

It has almost become part of NFL lore: You can't beat the Patriots when Bill Belichick has two weeks to prepare for a team.
The Steelers have been recognized for years as a franchise that takes great pride in the running game; the Patriots have been defined in their modern era as a passing powerhouse directed by future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady.

The New England Patriots released cornerback Leigh Bodden on Friday.
Patriots coach Bill Belichick and Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa are friends. Even if you didn't know this previously, you're not that surprised, are you?
