Final minicamp practice cancelled

Similar to last year, coach Bill Belichick has cancelled the Patriots' final mandatory minicamp practice.

This is likely a result of Belichick feeling that all the necessary work has been completed. The mandatory minicamp is a culmination of a four-week stretch in which the Patriots had 12 practices -- 10 voluntary organized team activities and two mandatory minicamp sessions.

There will be no media access at the stadium today.

The plan was initially to hold our weekly Patriots chat tomorrow, but with this change, we'll shift it back to today (12 p.m. ET). A link will be passed along shortly.
