The Patriots held a walk through today with the Eagles, in preparation for tomorrow night’s preseason game.

Not much happens, nor can you tell much from walk through, so we will touch on some news and need-to-know things.

WR Jeremy Gallon, T Chris Martin, RB Tyler Gaffney, TE Michael Hoomanawanui, C Bryan Stork, LB Cameron Gordon, TE D.J. Williams, DT Chris Jones, DT Sealver Siliga, S Kanorris Davis, LB Ja’Gared Davis, S Tavon Wilson, LB Jerod Mayo, LB James Anderson, DL Jerel Worthy, and DL Ben Bass did not practice.

Tom Brady, Ryan Mallett, and Jimmy Garoppolo will all play tomorrow night, how much will remain to be seen.

Tight End Steve Maneri and fullback James Devlin will be the only two tight ends ready to play tomorrow. Devlin has been getting snaps at tight end.

Rob Gronkowski ran routes and caught some passes from Tom Brady. He’s been doing that lately, trying to get ready.

Aaron Dobson still isn’t ready for contact, yet.

Nate Solder, the Patriots best offensive lineman and starting left tackle, left practice late with a trainer, but no one knows why. He didn’t seem to be in any pain.

The Patriots spent time on situational drills that included scramble drills, last-second passes to the end zone, and onside kicks.

The Patriots will play the Eagles tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m.
