August 24-- Duckett's First Day, The other backs will stay

QB Mark Brunell was held out of practice due to a sore groin that started bothering him on Wednesday.. The team says it is precautionary and that he is fine and will play in NE Saturday night..

TJ Duckett was on the field for his first practice with the team.. The coaches say he will get some carries Saturday night.. He admits the terminology here is very different then from Atlanta, but he hopes he can catch on quickly and for the time being his instincts might just have to take over.. Earnest Byner said he was happy about the reaction of his other backs to the trade saying if “they don’t care, then we don’t have the right people here.”
The team continues to contend that Rock Cartwright and Ladell Betts are not in danger of being released.. Vinny Cerrato went so far as to say that Betts’s agent praised the deal… Cerrato said that Duckett’s agent is not interested in discussing a long term extension right now and the team doesn’t seem to be in a rush to get something locked in stone.. If Duckett leaves, he could end up being a high priced rent a player..

The reason the Duckett deal took so long to be finalized was based partially on money the Broncos were trying to retrieve from WR Ashley Leile.. The rumor around here yesterday was that Leile had to fax a copy of a check he was sending to Denver before the Broncos would sign off on the deal..

RB Clinton Portis says it is too soon to tell when he will be able to return to practice, saying he is not close to being fully healed right now and that he’ll continue to rehab…

LB Robert McCune has a strained hamstring and is out for the NE game, he did not practice on Thursday..
Others who missed practice: Portis (shoulder), CB Shawn Springs (abdominal), LB Kevin Simon (abdominal), TE Robert Johnson (ankle), DT Cornelious Griffin (knee), DE Phillip Daniels (back), T Jim Molinaro (knee) None of these players are expected to play against the Patriots..

Cerrato also said the team as of right now is happy with the two punters and that they are not searching the marketplace for a replacement…
