Albert Haynesworth and Shaun Ellis are two of the Patriots' newest marquee names, yet neither is expected to make their debut in the New England Patriots' preseason opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night.
"I'd put him in the day-to-day category," Belichick said [talking about Haynesworth]. "He's getting some treatment and I think he'll be back out there as soon as he can. He's working really hard and hopefully, he'll back out there in a matter of hopefully a day or a matter of days." (via WEEI)
Ellis was placed on the PUP list on Tuesday, as he was unable to practice in the Patriots' Monday session. He can return to practice at any time, but if he isn't ready to play by the time the Pats cut their roster to 53, Belichick and company could place him on the injured reserve/PUP list that would keep him out for the first six weeks of the season.
