Tom Brady returns to practice and players react to Asante Samuel's return to Foxboro.  Also, Harrison and Lynch talk about being teammates and David Thomas' improvement this year in today's News Blitz.

After missing the team's trip to Tampa Bay with a foot injury, QB **Tom Brady **returned to practice yesterday. The *Boston Globe *reports seeing him do some light throwing and stretching without a footwrap.

With the Philadelphia Eagles game coming up tomorrow night at Gillette stadium, it will mark the first time CB Asante Samuel will return to face his former team since signing with the Eagles this offseason. Many Players are excited to see Samuel as they are still friends with him.

“I talked to him the other day. He’s doing great. Wouldn’t you, $60 million richer?” Rodney Harrisonsaid yesterday when asked by the* Boston Herald *about his former teammate and secondary partner. "He's doing wonderful."

Harrison also spoke about playing with S John Lynch, a guy that is known for his veteran leadership and hard nosed style of play, much like Harrison.

The *Metro West Daily News *caught up with John Lynch to find out how he was adjusting to the Patriots' system and who has helped him thus far.

"This is a tough system to pick up," said Lynch. "You play this long you feel like you should be able to come in and pick it up right away, but there's a lot to this system. At times it feels like it's coming slow, but then I'll look at the calendar and realize I've only been here four days. But Rodney (Harrison)'s been good with that. He's been through it and he's helping me through it."

Lastly, TE David Thomaswas asked by the Globe when he last scored a touchdown, "Yeah, it's been a while, I guess Jacksonville, my rookie year."Thomas told reporters.

After spending the last year on injured reserve Thomas is excited to be healthy again and is ready to prove that the promise he showed his rookie year was no fluke.
