The Patriots will not practice on Monday, the team's first non-practice day during training camp.

According to the league's bargaining agreement, teams are required to give their players at least one day off every seven days. The Patriots are five days into camp after the team's mandatory reporting date for veterans, Wednesday July 23.

They'll return to the field on Tuesday for another practice and will likely take another day off before heading to Richmond, Va., next week for joint practices with Washington.

So instead, check out the team's attendance from camp and what you may have missed over the weekend.
