Patriots finalize practices with Eagles

It was previously reported that the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles would hold joint practices at Gillette Stadium leading in to their Friday, Aug. 15 preseason game at Gillette Stadium, and the team today formally announced the details of those practices.

The practices will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 12 and Wednesday, Aug. 13, and will start at 2 p.m. ET.

The Patriots and Eagles held joint practices last year at the Eagles' NovaCare complex.

This gives the Patriots five total joint practices this year -- three with the Redskins in Richmond, Virginia, and two with the Eagles in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
