Pats will practice in rain today

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- After an indoor, low-key walk-through practice on Wednesday, Patriots coach Bill Belichick wants his team in the elements on Thursday.

The Patriots are scheduled to practice inside Gillette Stadium on a wet, rainy day in New England. Belichick often says that he likes the team to practice in the elements because they could be playing in them at some point, and their most recent rain game wasn't one of their best -- a loss to the 49ers on Dec. 16.

The practice is scheduled for the early afternoon.

Updates from practice to come.
