Cassel Back at Practice

Patriots quarterback Matt Cassel was back at practice today, this despite his father passing away just three days ago. He is expected to play Sunday against the Raiders.

“Maybe being around the guys might ease [things] a bit,” fullback Heath Evans told the Boston Globe. “I don’t know that for a fact. [But when I saw him this morning] I kind of wanted to wrap my arms around him and tell him I love him. At this time, that’s about the only thing you can know how to do. Hopefully, we can be of some encouragement to him and that helps him out.”

Funeral services for Greg Cassel will take place on Monday.
