"I think he's doing better," coach Bill Belichick said before the team went on the field to begin the session. "I think he's doing a little better each day. We'll just have to see where things (are) and get through tomorrow."
"It really is (good to see the players enjoy the day)," Belichick said. "These guys have worked hard, they've earned this trip. We know we're here for a job but it's also a fun thing to be part of this game so it's fun to be seeing them enjoying it. This is what we all work for. To be here. You want to be here, you want to enjoy it, there's a job to do but you want to be able to enjoy the trip."
The Patriots will spend Saturday night at their team hotel on the campus of IUPUI on the edge of downtown Indianapolis. Belichick said there were no stragglers that missed the team's Friday night curfew.
After the stadium session, the team returned to its hotel. The Patriots will have a team meeting in-between lunch and dinner. There will be a curfew Saturday night as well. The time was undisclosed.
