Even though Jonas Gray had the best game of his short career last Sunday, Bill Belichick didn't let it slide when the running back was late to practice today. Gray says he was late because his phone died, so his alarm didn't go off, but Belichick's hardass rules bend for no one. The team held Gray out of practice.

Darrelle Revis was held out of practice earlier this season after he was late, but he still played that week's game. Even with the signing of LeGarrette Blount, Gray probably won't miss much playing time—that's also assuming the Patriots plan to run the ball against the Lions as much as they did last week—but the idea of a young guy following up his breakout by being late is a little funny.
