Oh, here's some good news for the rest of the AFC. The Patriots are about to get EVEN BETTER. This week, players who are on the physically unable to preform list can begin practicing and playing. In New England's case, that means defensive lineman Richard Seymour and wide receiver Troy Brown have a chance to return to the squad.

Seymour, of course, is the big deal here. Brown and another wide receiver, Chad Jackson, would seem to have a pretty tough time cracking a WR unit that already includes Randy Moss, Donte Stallworth and Wes Welker. It was Brown's heads-up strip of an interception against San Diego in last year's AFC playoffs that allowed the Pats to snatch that game away from the Chargers and paved the way for Marty Schottenheimer's departure.

Another interesting development will be in Kansas City, where former Ravens running back Priest Holmes is also eligible to resume practicing. Holmes hasn't played since 2005 when a neck injury sidelined an extremely productive career and opened the door for the full-time emergence of Larry Johnson.
