What to expect from coverage today

Friday marks the eighth day of Patriots training camp practices, and here is what can be expected in this space:

There is a single practice today, at 1:30 p.m (open to the public). The expectation is that quarterback Tom Brady, who was initially scheduled to speak with reporters Thursday, will hold a news conference. I'll be joined by Mike Rodak and we will post observations after the session, highlighting some of the different things that catch our eye.

Here is the schedule:

1:30-4 p.m. -- Practice (open to public)

I will be active on Twitter (@MikeReiss), although not during each practice. The Patriots ask reporters for their cooperation in the following areas:

1. Not reporting on offensive or defensive strategy, which includes formations, personnel groups or non-conventional plays.

2. No quoting players or coaches during a practice.

3. Not reporting on practice until the session is over.
